GRASSROOTS ORGANIZING can help us MAKE MORE PROGRESS on issues we care about!

Governments keep FAILING to take the bold, progressive actions that are necessary.  Entrenched “politics-as-usual” and Big Money and constraining assumptions about what is “politically feasible” keep limiting people and preventing the progress that we need.  The public is far ahead of the politicians, so we must ORGANIZE GRASSROOTS MOVEMENTS to make the big changes in public policy that the people want!

 

 

Many people feel overwhelmed by the many serious problems.  But that causes many people to feel overwhelmed and disempowered.  Instead of lamenting how bad the problems are, we can organize to solve them.

 

 

The November 2022 program on “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” TV series provides many fresh insights that can inform and empower you to take bold, positive actions on issues you care about.

The American people know serious problems exist.  Public opinion polls keep showing that increasing majorities say our nation is “on the wrong track.”  So what do we do about it?  Take small steps only?  Or solve the big problems?

Our November 2022 TV interview is positive, upbeat, creative, and encouraging.  Besides working to stop what we oppose, what if we also worked equally hard and skillfully to accomplish what we want instead?

You can WATCH THE TV VIDEO at the first link below and/or read the thorough summary of what we said on TV in the second link below.  (The thorough summary includes much more information and many resources.)  Glen compiled a great many quotations about various aspects of CHOOSING A BOLD, HUMANE FUTURE.  You can read them by clicking the third link below.

The elites want to settle for “centrism.”  We must reject “centrism” in order to boldly solve the problems.  What had been considered “radical” now has become the rational, sensible solution.

The second paragraph of the article I linked below says this:  “Often, what gets passed off as pragmatism in politics is just head-in-the-sand conservatism with better PR. The fetishism of centrists, of ​“moderates,” is based not on wisdom, but on fear — the perennial fear that comes when the safety of being surrounded on all sides by agreement evaporates. True reason demands that when the world changes, our views about the world change too. The political brand of the Reasonable Man is notable for its distinct unwillingness to do this basic thing.”  This smart article urges truly bold politics:  https://inthesetimes.com/article/radical-is-rational?link_id=4&can_id=1d662460c0abb8939c5044c82927552b&source=email-progressive-candidates-rack-up-some-big-wins-the-fresh-hell-of-depending-on-your-employer-for-abortion-access-2&email_referrer=email_1599728&email_subject=dont-trust-the-federal-reserve-on-inflation-why-socialists-shouldnt-ignore-the-january-6-hearings
