“Today, the public discourse is so clotted and constrained, so limited to the right and far right, that it really is imperative for those of us who object to the direction the country is going to speak out, strongly and often. Not because we all deserve a prominent media role but rather in the hopes that eventually the media will be forced to broaden its coverage of political opinion to acknowledge voices like ours.”
Very well said.
Reminds me of something that has stayed with me, said by civil rights activist Jack O’Dell, “[Protest has] got to be organized or it’s meaningless. We can’t become private revolutionaries. Private revolution only effects you.”
