"What are you rebelling against?"
"Whaddya got?"


--From the 1953 movie, The Wild One


Apr. 27, 2012 -- It's no accident that "the system" -- this dominant and destructive culture of ours -- makes us feel so damn alone, makes us feel like we can't make a difference, like we can't "fight City Hall."

The nature of top-down rule, of course, is to leave those on the bottom throwing up their hands in resignation, heaving a collective sigh, and concluding: Whaddya gonna do?

I'll let you in a secret or three: We are not alone, we can make a difference, and what we're "gonna do" is occupy a goddamned strike on May 1.

2. I'm unemployed so I can't miss work

But I can damn well not spend a penny nor go to a single place of business. It's suppose to be sunny and 70 here in northern MI tomorrow, great day to go on strike.
