Instant-Mix Imperial Democracy, Buy One Get One Free

We have been on REWIND for a DECADE since this speech by Arundhati Roy was delivered in 2003. It is time to awaken from the sickness and demand truth and justice for all - as we the people declared at the onset of this nation.

But we declare this now not as imperialist conquerors of a land filled with indigenous people,
oppressing the masses, denouncing the working class and poor. 
It is time for the humble to take their place and inherit the world as they are due.

The spirit which founded the United States of America through the Declaration of Independence, US Constitution and the US Bill of Rights grants the people of the nation the ability to hold our government in check should it be misguided. That time of misguidance has arrived and the mainstream press is not serving the public. The United States and the State of Michigan have declared war upon the people, violating the voice and right of the people whom it claims to serve. We know it not to be in service - it has been oppressing the people, controlling mainstream press, and have overturned the purpose of democracy.

This representative democracy has evolved into an autocratic ruling power. We are calling it to task through requests for information to honor the transparency ensured to the people. The people will stand in audit of the government and we demand justice in the truth to be revealed. We realize that the full depth of truth will be concealed even through what is revealed by the ruling class and those corporate entities which work through it. Our government has been sold out to special interests whom have preyed upon the people.

As stated in the speech, which can be read in its entirety through this link - taking action matters.
It would be naive to imagine that we can directly confront Empire. Our strategy must be to isolate Empire's working parts and disable them one by one. No target is too small. No victory too insignificant.
We must mobilize on EVERY FRONT on EVERY ISSUE. It is all worthwhile to protest and denounce. Use our press, the voice of the people, speaking, writing, recording, sharing. It is a responsibility and duty to ourselves and to each other. As she states in the lecture in closing SEIZE THE TIME.
