BRAVO! Tell it like it is Jake!
To paraphrase Obama......"What we heard in Philly this week wasn’t particularly Democratic – and it sure wasn’t progressive/left. What we heard was a deeply deceptive vision of a country where the 1% corrupts politicians and government and turns us against each other, and use the rest of the world for profit alone. There were no serious solutions to pressing problems – just the fanning of resentment and mouthing deceptive words to continue the rule of the 1% that generated anger, and hate/contempt. And that is not the America I know."
What we heard in Philly this week were apologists for corrupt politics and leadership. Manipulative, but empty, sugar-sweet words that evaded the critical issues of our time that millions demand - party propaganda and hyper-partisanship. Deceptive words that bypassed the decades of increasing betrayals of the Dem establishment away from the people, the 99%, and its servitude to 1% big-money and power, and the depraved quest for profits above all else.
those mechanisms must be torn down.......
To paraphrase D.M:
"Our lives are not our own, we are bound to others and by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future."
They try to make us believe: "There is a natural order to this world, and those who try to upend it do not fare well. This movement - to tear down the systems that built it -.will never survive"
They try to make us believe: "No matter what you do it will never amount to anything more than a single drop in a limitless ocean, but what is an ocean but a multitude of drops?"
"We must all fight and, if necessary, die to teach people the truth". "You have to do whatever you can't not do."
"If (we) had remained invisible, the truth would stay hidden. (we) couldn't allow that."
"And what if no one believes this truth?"
"Someone already does."
