Between a new prep this quarter, doing a little last minute election volunteering (phonebanking, poll observing), pitching in with the Tram-Train proposal in Newcastle, NSW, and other ins and outs (like the cold I am just recuperating from) ... the blog has been quiet.
But its not dead, its just resting. Regular service will resume sometime after Tuesday's election.
It is not, however, bereft of life, resting in peace, or IOW an EX-blog.
Its just pining for the fjords.
Populist movements don't build themselves ...
... It doesn't matter what the "horse race" outcome of the campaign is, if we fight the campaign. Fighting it, we learn how to fight. Learning how to fight political battles, we become citizens again. Becoming citizens again, we reclaim the Republic that lies dormant beneath the bread and circuses of modern American society.
