Things YOU Can Do Now
In the December, 2009 issue of "The Hightower Lowdown", Jim Hightower
suggests 6 things we should be doing, rather than just wait.
Here are an abstract of what he is suggesting;
1. Start by considering what's reasonable for you.
Few of us can be full-time activists, and the list of issues and
problems is intimidatingly long and complex.
So just take one bite. . . .
2. Inform yourself.
A little effort can quickly connect you to accessible, useable
information and insights. . . .
3. Democracy belongs to those who show up
Join with others. Everyone feels better when they're part of a group, a
movement, a community ( whether real or virtual). . . .
4. A community is more than a collection of issues and endless meetings
Get to know each other by combining the serious with the social. . . .
5. Become the media
Create a local newsletter, blog, bulletin board (on the wall or
online), internet radio, etc. . . .
6. Hold your own "what to do" sessions in your community
Don't wait . . . . . Instead, have your own discussions. . . . .
