Three Rules for Radicals in an Era of Crisis

Climate change. Medical costs. Inequality. Time famine. Issues galore. So, how do we get the biggest bang for our activist buck? Try these guidelines: work for (not against), get radical (address the radix or root) and follow the money – that’s where the rubber meets the road.

People hacking at the root normally have to wait a long time for results. Yet, are these times normal? Now, as so many critical issues intersect, many people long for a clean break from intractable problems and insufficient solutions.

Lend your voice; even stating the ideal helps make it real. Rather than make conditions in the prison tolerable, let’s tear the walls of the prison down. Throw our energy into recognizing, recovering and partitioning our commonwealth. As Lincoln said, “nothing’s fixed until it’s fixed right.” Let’s get it right.
