  •  Relevant quote I heard today: (16+ / 0-)

    "The ruling class will try to crush us with money, and we will fight back with time. And they will run out of money before we run out of time." Or something like that. It's probably paraphrased, since I don't remember the exact words.

    Not entirely sure I agree with that sentiment, on reflection. I like where it is going in general, but it leaves too much to chance. You need to get in the ruling class's face, and then be ready to pay the penalty. Ghandi understood this. King understood this. Malcolm X understood this, even if he was a militant about it. Right now I am much more sympathetic to Malcolm X's approach, but there is a lot to learn from all three of them.

    I will repeat what I said a few nights ago: we need to Occupy the Democratic Party, and Occupy the Government. Only by doing that will we actually get jack done.

    •  We should also occupy the repub party (1+ / 0-)

      It is not right that it has degenerated from Lincoln's day to a selfish, mean minded, hate government in any form presence.
