I’m a passionate political activist. But political activism has its downsides and its limits – unsavory compromises, the watering down of core values, settling on mediocre candidates, our candidates not delivering – and losing.
What if a majority of voters were in agreement with our values and we didn’t have to fight so hard politically?
In the midst of the COVID-19 international crisis, there couldn’t be a more important moment for global cooperation. Instead, our government has chosen to wield its economic power to buy up the existing supply of PPE (personal protective equipment) and virtually cut off the supply to our neighbors and allies.
In America, Hate Speech is not only NOT illegal, it is protected by the 1st Amendment. This needs to change.
