  •  Lessons from Egypt apply here (5+ / 0-)

    Excellent article from NY Times today about an intellectual who has been writing about non violent protests for 40 years. His book "From Dictatorship to Democracy" played a role in the organized effort in Egypt to get rid of the dictator.

    That these handbooks can be useful here in good old USA shows how far we have moved to totalitarianism.

    First they came for ACORN, then they came for teachers, then they came for unionized state employees,   and so on. You know the drill. Actually Reagan accelerated union busting and democrats have not championed the issue.

    Here is the NY Times article link
