  •  Acting Strategically (1+ / 0-)

    I agree there is no time like the present for action.  Last night a friend of a friend, someone who is a pyschologist, turned to me and said, "What can I do?  I don't know what I can do that will make a difference."  She happened to be a member of the American Psychological Association, an organization whose leadership has lent legitimacy to the Bush tortures at Guantanamo because the organization refuses to kick out members who advise the torturers.  Here was a perfect opportunity for this friend of a friend to get involved, to support the dissident in the APA running to replace the incumbent Bush-collaborating President.  

    My point is that there isn't one prescribed course of action.  We need to be both boldly public and quietly strategic.

    •  So right! (0+ / 0-)

      Whatever we do, we must be as serious as the issue we're addressing.   This isn't a circus.  It's life and death.   Easy for us.  We're not being shot at or bombed every day like the poor people whose lives our nation has ruined.

      Anyone who sits home thinking it's not their job to make this right, is WRONG.
