Tipping Point

I don't know what the solution is, but I do know it begins with people understanding what's going on, and Naomi explains it well:

Fascist America, in 10 easy steps (text)

The End of America (video, more informal)

Are such essays and talks useful, or are they just preaching to the choir? Does anyone listen and tune in, or is it just noise to anyone who's not already on the same channel?

Sadly my experience over the last few years tells me the latter--that people begin with their assumptions and work backwards from there. If so, we may just be fucked. Optimism kills.

Curious to hear opinions. I hope y'all take the time to read or watch this one.

Interesting tidbit behind her $50,000 offer. Note the mention of Ron Paul too.

[Addendum: I added the text version late. The text version lacks what I consider a relevant or illustrative anecdote: the old woman saying repeatedly, with refererence to recent events here, "this happened in Germany". Consider this.]
