The question is: What can we do now, and what should we be prepared to do next?
I almost hesitate to start talking about this here, because I want this question to be really chewed over, brainstormed on, discussed thoroughly, and all the implications of each idea carried out as far as they'll go -- something which can only happen in The Revolutionary Bar, Grill, and Library.
It seems necessary to suggest a few ideas just to make the problem seem less overwhelming, however, so I'll do that. I'm not wedded to any of these ideas; they're more like Thomson's plum pudding model of the atom -- probably wrong in a lot of important ways, but enough to get the conversation started.
Working with the system, to various degrees:
- Retake the Democratic Party -- MSoC's original idea
- Retake State Governments -- probably too slow, though completely legit
- A Citizen's Constitutional Convention -- short, not very well researched, possibly not useful
Build outside the system:
