WE ARE THE SOLUTION TO GLOBAL INEQUALITY AND DESTRUCTION OF THE CLIMATE---BLOG ACTION DAY 2014
October 16, 2014 is the 8th annual Blog Action Day.
The theme this year is inequality.
It is good to see this yearly blog effort because bloggers around the world are everyday people who do the work of freedom.
Some bloggers brave substantial risk to offer their viewpoints in the places they live and to the entire world.
As awful as the state government of Texas is, I don't face the risks bloggers in even more repressive parts of the world confront. So I'm glad to be a small part of a global effort with such good colleagues.
(My friend Perry Dorrell at Brains & Eggs is also taking part in Blogger Action Day.)
Wealth is increasingly concentrated across the world.
In the United States, what is left of the middle class is economically worse off then 25 years ago.
Our global economic systems, which all lead to the rule of just a few elites whether it be in China or Russia or the United States, are accelerating climate change and making sure that the most powerful remain in power with the use of constant surveillance and militarized police.
There are other ways to live other than feeling our lives and our fates are tied to systems that don't pay fair wages for our work, pit us against each other, offer us junk to eat and destroy the planet.
These efforts begin with each of us as individuals and as people coming together to demand something better.
We all have the capacity to fight back. Fast food workers in the United States have been striking for higher wages. We all have the power to fight back individually and collectively.
Here is a list of ideas for everyday resistance.
Your thoughts and ideas on better ways to live and ways to resist the greed and violence of everyday life are welcome. Please leave a comment or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Good and hopeful things happen all the time in life. Let's bring about a better way of living.
