33. We need to be reminded
I think what's happened is that we have allowed too much to be swept under the rug. People are hurting today -- and it's not just "the poor" anymore. Average middle class people are slipping down the econimic scale, while a handful are being pushed higher up.

We need the equivalent of MLK style inspiration -- only this aimed at both the middle class and the poor. They are becoming increasingly intertwined.

As for specific solutions, I agree with you. It can;t just be rhetoric. But there are plenty of possibnle answers around -- including new progressive approaches that can appeal both to the lefties and those like you who recognize similar problems.
