Domestic and geopolitical criminality today are more worrisome now than earlier. Activism against militarism is vital. Other key issues must be addressed.

"We must work together constantly to end the control of the government from the top and put it in the hands of the middle and the bottom."
"We must democratize U.S. politics if we are ever to have a decent society with an economy which meets the needs of the majority for health care and decent housing for all, a protected environment, an end to wars, and whatever else is needed for a safe and decent life for all."
Change for the better isn't handed us. Getting it involves determined struggle. Bottom up democracy is the real kind. Ideally, it should be direct.
Representative democracy never worked. Today it's too corrupted to fix. Presidents and congressional members serve monied, not popular, interests.
Victor Hugo said, "There is one thing stronger than all the armies in the world, and that is an idea whose time has come."
That time is now. With enough committed believers, it can happen. It has to. There's no other way.
"Today the U.S. is a sick and dangerous nation run by a handful of the politically powerful, permitted to do so by a population much of which envies them instead of fighting them."
"Beginning now and staying with it, we must create a set of national policies to transform today's plutocracy into a genuine democracy."
