Confronting Administration Apologists

So much of GuvWurld is about new strategies for change. As with the great exchange with Arcata City Councilman Michael Machi that I reported last night, it is important to be able to convert opponents into allies. BAGeL Radio (listen), an excellent online radio station for all sorts of hip new music, peppered with political commentary, has published a great essay with suggestions for Confronting Administration Apologists (in GuvWurld archive, links to original).

It is necessary to understand that the great schism dividing this country is intentionally manufactured by people clinging to power by turning us against each other. It is also essential to recognize that the differences separating us are almost entirely about language. Both sides want freedom, liberty and justice. In order for us all to have these things, we must learn to talk to each other in ways which acknowledge our differences are not with each other but the leaders who have betrayed us.
