Time To Get Back To Work
It has been a very long time since I posted on this blog. A long time since any of us have, but for me it’s been years. There were many reasons for this, and someday I’ll go into it. Right now, though, there’s work to do.
Tomorrow America gets a new president. A man who is unfit to be the president in every way. There have been endless think pieces and op-eds and essays and articles and YouTube videos on how it is we got here. That’s a great first step. Naming what went wrong, how media and social networks and shadowy entities and foreign powers manipulated our national narrative is important to understanding it. That’s not where it ends, though.
Next step is coming up with ideas on how to then fix these problems–no small task. And not a task for individuals alone. It’s just necessary.
Alongside that we also need to identify the individuals, groups, organizations, and even business entities that have and will do the work to get solutions moving.
And then we need to support those efforts with our voices, our time, our bodies, or our funds.
Bottom Line: We need concrete steps in order to counter the unholy mess coming our way. And that’s what this blog will be about going forward.
I have some ideas on the shape of this, and I’ll be reaching out to past bloggers on this site for their input. I also want to hear from you on the kinds of signals we should boost, people we should hear from, organizations we should partner with.
At the moment, I’m still getting stuff cleaned up around here. I changed the theme, as some might notice, and I’m working on how best to highlight the old content and make it distinct from the new. It’s still a work in progress, so bear with me.
Also: Welcome Back. I’m still angry. How about you?
