Simple answers to simple questions
David Sirota asks:
Will we be held hostage by the all-too-frequent naysaying among our all-too-cautious-and-comfortable “allies” in Washington’s liberal non-profit/think tank circles – people who have good intentions, but too often lack the intestinal fortitude to make enemies of some people they see on the cocktail party circuit? Will we listen to the liberal-sounding pundits that we all love to read and cheer on, but who primarily look down their noses at actual movement building? Or will we have the guts to build a movement that takes no prisoners, creates enemies, and makes the Beltway Establishment angry as we pursue goals like universal health care, fair trade, better wages, serious environmental protections and real civil liberties?
No. Fuck no. Because they have done nothing for us. Fuck what they think. NARAL anyone?
