Friends Talk Occupy in Des Moines

What would William Penn think of today's Occupy movement? As Kathleen McQuillen, AFSC Iowa Program Coordinator, noted in a recent second-hour discussion with the Des Moines Valley Friends Meeting, Penn observed that the love of money is the root of all evil, which seems like a reasonable link with today's Occupiers. McQuillen added that the widening wealth gap in our country has created an extreme democracy gap; both are driving today's calls for change.
