I’ve been a fan of Naomi Klein’s ever since No Logo. She has a piece up over at the GNN echoing what I said yesterday, namely that we have to hold all the new “changemongers” collective feet to the fire and demand that focus shift from the “corporate people” to actual, living citizens of the United States. Word is bond, Naomi!
The new president’s only hope of resisting this campaign being waged by the elites is if the remarkable grassroots movement that carried him to victory can somehow stay energized, networked, mobilized – and most of all, critical. Now that the election has been won, this movement’s new mission should be clear: loudly holding Obama to his campaign promises, and letting the Democrats know that there will be consequences for betrayal.Naomi Klein
