Food for Thought…


1. In “How to Change the World”, Bornstein states the reason why social movements have grown increasingly popular is because “more people today have the freedom, time, wealth, health, exposure, social mobility, and confidence to address social problems in bold new ways.” How would you relate these characteristics of why people are joining social movements to the Occupy Wall Street phenomena?
 
2. Do you believe that it is within Kiva’s “social responsibility” to reorganize itself into a for profit company? Why or why not?
 
3. When reading Rorty’s “Campaigns and Movements,” he mentions that people have a tendency to jump on the bandwagon of some types of movements or campaigns. When reading the case on Kiva, do you believe that Rorty’s criticism of modern day movements can be applied to this NGO?
