Tools for Change

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what the world would have been like if we had the Internet in the 60′s. We only had books, newspapers, magazines and network TV. I envy the youth of today. You have so many more tools to change your world.

Today with all the information available at our fingertips many of us are still mislead by misinformation. We still have unjust wars, children are still dying of hunger and malnutrition, bigotry and hate are still alive and well. Most of the problems that many in my generation tried to end are still with us.

My biggest hope is that our youth will learn from our mistakes and use these new tools available today to change their world into a better place for themselves and their children.

Don't Be Fooled

Senate Vote on Yemen

But the House won't vote on it.

This is how it's done!

We beat our drums. The Republican Party is dying we said. We even wrote the obituary. Now we see the resurrection of every evil we have ever known. I'm still not sure what I can and will do next except continue to promote Democrats and fight for human rights and social justice.

We survived Reagan, we survived the Village Idiot. Many people have survived a lot worse. We must start today to change this. We must vote in every election like our lives depended on it. We must retake the state legislatures, the governorship's, the House and the Senate. Those in power could care less if we write petitions. They could care less if we protest every day on the streets. We must focus on damage control and support every effort to minimize the destruction that we are now facing.

I marched and protested in the 60s. We were or at least thought we were a revolution. We only had word of mouth and mimeograph machines. When Occupy came along, I thought now is the time. We will have a real revolution. We have the internet, cell phones and a lot more tools. It fizzled. Now a minority of left-wing progressives think the Saint Bernie revolution will change things. You have not learned from your history. Things change when there is blood on the streets. BLM has that power and may change things. I doubt that the white privileged supporters of Saint Bernie will make any difference.

In 1968 many of us campaigned long and hard for either Eugene McCarthy or Robert Kennedy. When Humphrey (with progressive credentials) was nominated we felt betrayed. He was the establishment candidate. We either didn't vote or campaigned for a third party candidate. We ended up with Nixon. I don't want to see that happen again.

My opinions are based on facts as I see them, upon experience and upon how I see the mixture in today's world. I can be wrong, I'm not perfect. I have never claimed to be perfect. You can dispute my opinion, but if you want to change it you must show me facts that I have not considered.

Disclaimer: I'm an old fart. I'm not an expert. I've been around the block a time or two. We get on line on networking sites such as Google+, Facebook, Twitter, etc. We find a bunch of people that agree with us and we think we have the world by the tail. We think because so many people agree with us that we shit rainbows. In politics there is no guarantee that we are the majority. We hope we are. We think that no rationale person can think different than we do. Maybe we place to much value on rationale. People are not always rationale. If people were rationale, there would be no divide of us vs them.
