Buzzflash is running an editorial today
There is No Choice "C"
in the Battle to Restore Democracy to America
"On Saturday, we wrote in our e-mail alert that we believed that liberals who smugly disdain outrage and think that if they are "polite and civil" democracy will be restored, that these people are cowards and deserters from the battle for democracy.
This was written in reaction to e-mail subscribers who have left our BuzzFlash alerts because they think that we are too "shrill" and "angry."
"The truth is that in life you don't always get the choices you want, particularly in politics and government. In this case, we are currently confronted with Choices "A" and "B": a dictatorship disguised as a democracy or the restoration of the democracy and Constitutional rights that were granted to this nation in 1776.
There is no Choice "C."
In my view, the folks at "The Flash" are very good
at reporting our condition.
And they deserve our support.
But there is a Choice C.
It is based on the radical realization that the world we have known,
Maybe you didn't get the e mail or perhaps you didn't see it
on the Evening News.
But it happened.
On Feb 11, almost beyond belief, two independent stories
spoke of the arrival and reality of uncontrolled climate change,
and the beginning of the end of our depletable oil resources.
Democracy, as we have known it, is now buried under
a mountain of Corporate donations.
It has slipped behind a black hole of unaccountability,
where votes are no longer counted but tabulated,
by computers now controlled by criminals and cronies.
Our Institututions are corrupted.
Our leaders are in la la land.
Except for a few heros,
Our press is asleep at the quill.
We cannot restore democracy to America.
America has passed.
What is before us is a World
beyond right and wrong.
beyond our limited views
and our abilities to perceive.
What is before us is a World,
of cooperation over competition,
of union over division,
of understanding over fear,
of life over death.
We are all sailors on this spaceship called earth.
So, say goodbye to America.
And Hello to your mothership.
With the advent of advanced global communication, new forms of social contract can be created which transcend the geographic state. These new cybercoops or cyberstates will bring humankind to higher levels of cooperation and understanding.
The Flashers and their like may someday choose
to help lead us in this new world.
We should be grateful
For the good work they do now.
For we are all of this earth,
and the Moon knows no strangers.
