What are you going to do today to fight the system?
If even a
small percentage of the population did something every day, things would
change. If a bigger percentage did something on pre-arranged days,
things would change even more. I don't think demonstrations are the
answer. But we need to do some things that stand up to the system, that
disrupt or undermine or confront the system. Voting within the system
can make tiny changes happen. But that's not nearly enough. We don't know
exactly what will make changes happen.
I asked Howard Zinn, about a
year before he passed away, what it would take to clean up the mess
"All you can do really - you do
your part, you do whatever you can. You organize with other people, you try to
get some kind of change, and if enough people do enough things, even if they're
little things, they will add up. Because that's what happens in movements: just
millions of people doing small things which they cannot predict in it's
results."So do a little every day. Do small things. Because
you never know whether that small thing will be the one that tips the
wagon and changes the world. If there is
enough of a bottom-up, collective movement, if enough people come
together or coordinate together, wherever they are, we have the power to
overcome anyone, anything.
