Liberal, Irreverent

Our 2 main sins

All Liberal sectors are guilty of precisely the same sins: allow the Right to define their movements and not educating the public at large. From workers rights to environment to women rights to etc. For example, it is interesting to hear blue collar workers to say that they believe unions served no purpose. For example, it has been a long time since I hear anyone reminding ALL American workers that unions help push the wages and salaries of ALL workers upwards. Another example, I have never seen a flyer in some car's windshield in some mall in some day explaining about women rights or worker's rights or dangers of global warming or economic advantages of immigration reform or why we need universal healthcare. If we wait until an issue moves to the front burner on CNN or MSNBC or Faux News to start an education campaign, we have wasted half the time already. This is even more important when in a media battle we can never outmatch the Koch brothers & the US Chamber of Commerce.
