This blog is intended to provoke thought and pierce the protective layers of denial, apathy and delusion. Its goal is to motivate people to put aside their excuses and take action to rectify the injustices that afflict them. Rigged rules, entrenched privilege, self-serving leaders and religious and political ideologues need to be changed or challenged.
Democracy requires participation from everyone, and not just for the few minutes every couple of years that it takes to vote. Our country has been captured by corporate power and our politics is being steered by fringe fanatics hollering about taking it back. In truth, what they want is to take it backwards.
When you’re ready to act, consult the website www.bad-influence.org for inspiration, education and motivation. Then go out and commit democracy!
