Not being immune to Japanese Tsunami, terrorists’ bombings, or corporate corrupted politicians, we must remember to follow the breadcrumbs discarded by the greedy, to find the sources that profit most by destroying our resources as easily as, adding chemicals to West Virginia water.
To pick up the trickle down trail of cold Pennsylvania coal mining executive Cliff Forrest, bankrupting people’s health before attempting to bankrupt his way out of town, we must learn to want to connect the dots….
…..between international corporate greed and Jersey bridge bullying; Three Mile Island’s 1979 Nuclear accident and 2011 Fukushima Japan’s nuclear disaster; Nazi concentration camps and Roaring Twenties plantation housing for black cotton pickers…..
You must remember this: knowledge is Democracy’s greatest ally.
We are not immune to Chinese smog, Sarah Palin deck of race cards or fast food addiction. Connecting the dots, reveals link between our incorporated environment, our corrupted EPA and our increasing vulnerability to diseases, including cancer.
You must remember this: the smooth talking salesman of Ayn Rand, joined by Mom for visual credibility, cheered in 2011 by the over 70 crowd at The Villages in Florida, for a Medicare grab that would not inflict cuts until their 50 year old children and 30 year old grandchildren needed affordable healthcare. Connecting the dots, we will remember not only to think outside the boxed in Fort Lee, but beyond the immediate needs of just you and me.
You must remember this: bullies are cowards with power, like Governors on the nutritional or Rockefeller take. Still re-electing the imperfect, somewhat corporately compromised Barack Obama to a second term, We the People proved Koch head bullies, despite donating billions to detonate American democratic will, the power of the crowd to wake up and take notice, is still our David against Goliaths.
You must remember this, however: re-electing a man under pressures from corporate globalization to Fast Track Trade Partnerships, just because he takes less corporate money than the really bad guys, and wants to change America by building Non-Christie Bridges of consensus, with those who have already sold out Main Street for Wall Street futures, is not enough.
You must remember this: If we keep lying to ourselves about the lies of power seeking more power on the backs of each of us less powerful, we have a lot more to lose than we have lost already.
