We’re Mad As Hell, And We’re Not Going To Take This Anymore!

Oy, this could get ugly.

A funny thing happened while I was on vacation. Actually, something interestingly strange and wonderful has happened. People all over the United States have been congregating in peaceful demonstrations, most notably on Wall Street in New York City. Perhaps that location is fitting, since we have hit a wall in what we are willing to accept from our politicians and our egregious money-men. There is too much injustice and the knowledge of these injustices, well, to quote Howard Beale from the movie, Network, “I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore!”

Yesterday, Nicholas Kristof posted a video on The New York Times offering specific talking points for the protesters to stand behind. With all this enthusiasm to stand up for our rights and against greed, we need a solid stance that the protesters can speak to. These complicated times and our issues are far more complicated then when we were protesting the war in Vietnam. Seems like we don’t protest wars anymore, it’s sooo last century. However, people are hurting, and they are channeling their anger in a positive way. And this marvelous burst of energy should not be squandered for lack of leadership and one ideal. So, listen up folks to what Mr. Kristof has to say, as he knows of what he speaks. Let’s combine the messages from Nicholas Kristof and Howard Beale and navigate a sea change.
