One of my all-time favorite people and one of the people whose example I continually return to in my thoughts – a saint indeed. He came up in a conversation with a friend about Occupy Wall Street, so I post this fine little obituary. I thought I had posted it before at some point, but it appears I never have. His basic philosophy was 1) we should have a sustainable world economy and 2) we should live on equal shares of it. He did some math and came up with the “World Equity Budget,” which rather terrifyingly would have us all living on something south of $200 per month. I specifically went looking for him, and met him in Eugene, after seeing him featured as the happiest man Angus Deayton found in his BBC series In Search of Happiness. And he was a happy man, because he lived the ideal that was inside of him – a perfect example of incarnation. It’s not enough to know what’s right, you have to live it.
