In 1967, Kathrine Switzer was the first woman to enter and complete the Boston Marathon as a numbered entry. She registered under the gender-neutral name of “K.V. Switzer”. After realizing that a woman was running, race organizer Jock Semple went after Switzer shouting, “Get the hell out of my race and give me those numbers.” however, Switzer’s boyfriend and other male runners provided a protective shield during the entire Marathon. These photographs taken of the incident made world headlines.

1967. Less than fifty years ago.

How weird is it that people unquestionably place the importance of money and the economy above issues of human rights and food and shelter and basic safety?  As a society, we unquestioningly view money as more important than the life and happiness of other human beings.

A successful economy is the most effective way to get most of those things

Why, though? Only because our society has been built that way; we view the economy as the way through every problem.
