Change the Culture

Progressives got to get out and put it out there. People have to take a side: Democracy or Inverted Totalitarianism? Food and shelter for all or super-mansions for the super-rich and starvation for the majority? Dignity or consumerism?

Artists, musicians, business owners, ... we have to make a culture and an economy that is ours and put it before the majority and reject the corporate system and sustain ourselves.

Ah, who am I kidding?

What is your solution. You seem to crap on anyone who wants to do something or is doing something. At least lay out a plan. Is there anyone or any group out there you like?

I wonder why you saw fit to write that. Your tone and words convey the notion that you're a regular reader of my blog, but the plain facts of the matter show that you don't have a clue.

Here's a post (with links to companion pieces) about how I thought we could "stop harper."

Here's one of many things that I've written about as a way to fight the larger battle against capitalism itself:

Finally, I find it a bit rich to say that I "crap on anyone who wants to do something or is doing something."

As I repeat again and again and again, progressives tend to do NOTHING when they're not repeatedly doing the same ineffective things that they've always done.

I've stated in great detail why I think afternoon protests, petitions and small acts of vandalism are a waste of time. Instead of sniffling out some vague complaints about how I'm hopelessly negative, you could actually engage with what I've actually said.

As with everyone, there's an open invitation to prove me wrong. But whining that I'm a big meanie isn't going to accomplish that.

I guess the plan was to drop a little brain turd in my comments section and move on, self-satisfied.
