We are in an atmosphere of paranoia not seen since the days of McCarthy and the HUAC.
Therefore, one hypothetical People-Powered exercise would:
- be well-planned, anticipating obstacles, hazards, and consequences... and contingencies for same.
- comprise a critical mass of people in order to break through the news media myopia.
- would have a structured support apparatus of planning, logistical, legal, and financial functions.
- be bold, yet measured and prudent.
- be within the law.
- be non-violent.
- be attended by participants prepared through workshop training.
- emerge in Spring like the cherry blossoms. On a Wednesday?
What else would help complete this hypothetical picture?
