Activism: Weaving Handbaskets

The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step.
LaoTzu

The question has been asked: Where do we go from here?

The answer: We go to work.

We do the hard job, the dirty jobs, the thankless jobs. We do them not for glory or profit, but because they must be done. We do them because there is noone else to do them.

Go here drill down in your state, don’t sign up for their newsletter, don’t send them money – VOLUNTEER! Put yourself on the line. Walk the walk.

You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life.
Winston Churchill

Get up off your … digital equivalent of a barstool go out and do something in the real world.

Bitching to your friends, on your twelfth tier blog, or FB isn’t going to change a goddamn thing for anybody.

Find a soap box, stand on the street corner and speak your mind!

Do something. Do anything but get up, go OUT and do it.

It is better to die on your feet than to live on your knees.
Emiliano Zapata

Go here drill down in your state, don’t sign up for their newsletter, don’t send them money – VOLUNTEER!

The alternative is to start weaving handbaskets. I hear it’s a growing market.
