Powerfully inspiring video (only 7 1/2 minutes) about the Green New Deal — by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Many of my friends urged me to watch this powerfully inspiring short video.
Finally I watched it.
Now I’m sharing it with you and hope it will “go viral.”


The Green New Deal would protect our nation far more effectively than militarism does.  The Green New Deal is a proactive way to deal realistically with the serious threats of climate disruption, unemployment, deteriorating infrastructure, depressed local communities, etc.  We should slash the Pentagon budget and generously fund the Green New Deal.

The Green New Deal has great power to inspire, educate, motivate, and employ many young people along with current workers who have been losing their jobs for various reasons.  It is a great way to restore our nation — to TRULY “make America great” — by actually solving problems instead of provoking hatred and greed.

In several ways, the Green New Deal could fulfill some of the purposes Mohandas (“the Mahatma”) Gandhi had proposed for his “Constructive Program” — practical, grassroots efforts to mobilize people to improve their everyday lives in radical ways consistent with the revolutionary values he promoted.
