Activists Face Enormous Challenges

Corporations_ate_my_Baby?! What? Huh? (a Facebook posting)

I started being "Corp" in 2004 on mySpace. We were the first really active daily politics bloggers and post-monkeys on MySpace when it first started.  It was a trip! Thousands of like minded people all finding one another and posting about everything from climate change to 9/11 theories. Those were the days. We all met each other then too. We organized and marched against Bush policies.  People also hooked up like crazy. There are a lot of mySpace babies going into 4th and 5th grade this year.
_
I went onto other sites like Tumblr, WordPress and YouTube to try my activism there. Ultimately I got swept into Facebook where I had a private profile with over 2000 daily readers.  Then they had their pre-IPO massacre and my profile was nuked.

Today I have 733 "Likes" on a "fan page" or whatever this is... which "reaches" 1,700 people a day and I try my best to post stuff that shows the progress we make and the stupidity on the other side.   But it's not the same as the old days. We all know that. FB controls and limits us in comparison to "MySpace Tom" - and while the various "politics groups" are fun, they are nowhere near as intense as the old blogs were.
_
In many ways, socially the western world is better than it ever was before.   We are less brutal, more scientific... and better at meeting basic needs. In other ways things are worse than the Gilded age.   Those who don't have, suffer horribly.  Their children cannot break out of poverty... and if they are not pink-skinned, their lives are worth less and they often die horribly.   Humans of all hues are not doing what is required to stop the super-heating of our globe.  Things are going to be terrible for a lot of humans in the future.  I feel terrible for letting my great-grandchildren/nieces/nephews/cousins down.
_
Things are going to get worse-- and one day they will get bad enough to where we organize and chop the heads off of the "ruling class" (oligarchs.)  I wish we could just be civilized about it... but... money.   Corporations_ate_our_Civil_Options.

Welcome Letter for my new Facebook page “Corporati”

Welcome all Corporati to “Corp 2.0”

Well, whether I like it or not, things have changed. I’ve lost 1500 thoughtful readers due to the pitfalls of debating on the internet. If someone gets their butt hurt, they can “report” you. Sometimes on well worded claiming “abuse” is all it takes. For those of you returning to me, welcome back! I’m so glad that you found me!

For those of you new to me, here is what you can expect… and how it will be different from before:

1. I am going to put my “notes” and my more substantive posts over at my word press blogs.

I can’t be so dependent on any one account anymore. So I am gonna try to spread it around. The best home base is probably my blog. It’s time to use it a lot more. Twitter is fun too, and people don’t freak out and cry foul as much.

Here are the blogs:

The usual wacky stuff at “Corporatins8mybaby” / https://corporations8mybaby.wordpress.com/

The real serious stuff at “ReRegulate” / http://reregulate.wordpress.com/

I hope you will be willing to “click through” – and take a look maybe in a 2nd window. From there comment here on facebook or there with a (fake if you like) email address.

2.This is an election year and i want to encourage participation.

I am aware that a lot of people attracted to me are deeply disappointed that Obama is not FDR.

Even though frustrate my readers, (I see evidence of elements of JFK, FDR and even Lincoln in Obama) I am going to make the case up until the November Elections that Obama is *at LEAST LBJ* and that we should work to get him back in office. Much more importantly, I am going to make the case that we participate in a big way to fill the house and senate with NEW left of center Democrats that can translate the frustration of Occupy into good regulations and policy.

By getting people excited to beat Romney/Gingrich/GOP machine, we get new legislators.

But it won’t be all about “defending Obama” from reader criticism anymore. It won’t be about back n forth with emotional ping-pong balls. It certainly won’t be about exposing the massive flaws in logic that a left leaning supporter of Ron Paul keeps in his noodle.

No, after we participate in denying the GOP any power – we will all congratulate one another that we gave Occupy and the American Spring everything we could to reduce violence and government suppression.

From there I am going to change gears. After Obama’s second inauguration, I am going to go full tilt on pressuring the hell out of him, his administration and everyone who represents you from DC to your local school administrators.  Occupy is our greatest hope to end the true source of all of our political problems: Corruption. The corruption of those who would represent us by the money of the 1% and of international interests must be exposed and defeated if we are to achieve ANY of the other goals, desires and dreams for a better system in the future.

Obama maybe the point of pressure and *the focus of our will* for a rapid evolution in our system, but the change we seek will come from new legislation; new regulation. That means the people defeating the money for the attention of our representatives.

I will be spending the next two years and more on that.

I’ll also be bashing Fox and the Kleptocrats at every turn.

I’ll be doing videos, radio, blogs… I’ll be sharing your good ones all day long too.

You’ll always be able to hit my page and see what has been happening… some funny stuff… some sexy stuff and some stuff that will offend someone from every camp.

Like I said, FUN!

WARNING: I WILL EDIT threads and discussions!!!!

Editing may seem like “censorship” to you. It’s not. I’ll tell you to start a new thread and say whatever the hell you feel you need to to discuss this big picture of our future.  I will delete “TL/DRs”, I will delete abusive stuff, I will delete moonbat/conspiracy stuff.

I have a job to do this year, and long hypothetical threads about reptilian plots to enslave humanity with fluoride should remain on someone else’s page. Zero tolerance.

SRSLY, We are going to have FUN making this nation better again – bringing on the 2nd bill of rights, introducing more social democracy and maybe even opening the door to a whole new system for the next generation.  From Unions to a whole new union of resources and people… who knows?  We’re gonna be in the streets… we’re gonna be writing and reading. But let’s remember to bring Joy and Kindness with us.

Then we know this can be a movement that will grow.

One more warning… I can’t help myself… sometimes i write in a way that stirs shit up on purpose. Take it with a grain of salt when I write about the battle of the sexes or the frustrations of dealing with those who believe in the supernatural. It’s actually too much fun for me to challenge the staid thinking I see around me.

It takes time, energy and even luck to evolve and change from the merry prankster into the merry movement activist.

If you are patient with me, I will reward you for it with my very best.

Thank you for being my friend.
