When one first thinks about it, one would think the politics of not destroying civilization should be simple. It seems that "Not destroy civilization, Yes/No" would get a very high "Yes" vote.In the immediate future in US political, however, its far more complicated than that, given that one party's position is "No", and the other party's position is "Maybe, a little bit of not destroying civilization, if its not too inconvenient". So, how would we go about not destroying civilization, why is the politics of not destroying civilization so messy, and what in the hell can we do about it? _____________ Posted at: Voices on the Square Crossposted at: The Stars Hollow Gazette Crossposted at: HillbillyReport.org Crossposted at: Agent Orange
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.
