I was very intrigued by this response, and wanted to post it here to add to the dialogue and my thinking–Miriam.
Uomi S. Brog: Society sure needs our intervention.
the action or process of intervening: they are plants that grow naturally without human intervention.
• interference by a country in another’s affairs: the administration was reported to be considering military intervention.
• action taken to improve a situation, esp. a medical disorder: two patients were referred for surgical intervention.
• a meeting in which people confront an addicted, or otherwise troubled, individual in order to persuade the individual to seek help
To intervene, to try and make something or someone better appeals to me, I like the word in respect to the use on poetry on today’s society.
