Philanthropy Will Not Save Us

Thanks for this hugely important contribution, Rodney (and to all the Justice Funders!). One piece of the argument that I would love to learn way more about is the connection between rethinking capitalism and the big bet philanthropy you point to — what is it about the Communities Thrive Challenge that feels legitimately challenging to capitalism? How do we encourage more of those kinds of experiments? I’m convinced that so much of this has to do with the kinds of relationships we’re able to form (which is why BALLE’s work is so effective, of course). How do we create more relationships between those who are “disenchanted with capitalism” and those who haven’t yet realized how perilous and immoral it has become?
