Robert Reich on powerlessness
See his FB post here. He's right, and this is most assuredly by design of the 1%. This is exactly where they want us so that we won't organize and revolt. This is why the turnout in the last election was the lowest in 70 years, exactly what they wanted. Reich is also right that the only way we can overcome this is to take our power back by organizing and getting active. When we do we make progress, like the increasing number of States legalizing marriage equality, marijuana and increased minimum wages. We must regain our hope by doing something about the situation, despite the ongoing and incessant battle to make us feel helpless. Otherwise our democracy will be lost for good.
