“Politics is a game of fear. Those who do not have the ability to make the power elites afraid, do not succeed. The movements that opened up the democratic space in America, Women’s Suffrage, Labor, etc…. ..developed a critical mass and militancy that forced the centers of power to respond. The platitudes about justice, equality and democracy are just that. Only when power is threatened does it react. Appealing to its better nature is useless; it doesn’t have one. We will build nationwide movements of nonco-operation, or soon be shackled by our authoritarian masters.” (emphasis mine)

IMHO ~ No matter who you voted for, unless you recognize the truth herein, you’ll likely continue to be ready to blame your fellow citizens rather than the real enemy.
