You know that this is only going to get worse until you get off your ass and get organized, right? You understand that.
And you know that society is literally falling apart because money is the only organizing principle at work in our society, right? You understand that, I know you do.
And you realize that you can’t post your way out of this mess, right? You understand that Facebook and Twitter & even my glorious posting is just a distraction from the reality work that needs to be done. The work of organizing ourselves into some kind of strength that can oppose the mass-suicidal money power that controls everything in your life. You understand this, I know you do.
So stop looking at this picture of a roasted chicken with potato gratin, green beans & red wine jus (looks delicious doesn’t it?) and get to work- either organizing or letting yourself BE organized. The Poor People’s Campaign needs you. The Sunrise Movement needs you.
The Democrats aren’t going to fix this, there’s no manager you can complain to. There’s just power operating baldly and openly to wreck your climate, impoverish your family and destroy our country so that it can stay rich. And that Power only respects power- it’s not going to change because it would be nice. But you understand this, don’t you?
