The State Loves a Parade

"What has been the response? We have petition campaigns, we have marches, we have rallies. We read alot of books...and some of us scribble quite alot and publish more. Make sure the word is out there...defy logic by announcing that we're speaking truth to power as if power didn't know what it was doing somehow. We might wish to consider perhaps speaking to people once in a while. But to what purpose? Well, apparently so diets can be changed. Ok we can have more bicycle paths, we can have no smoking signs on every flat surface in California. We can bear moral witness and feel better about ourselves because we're enlightened and aware when we go home from a rally which did absolutely nothing to change anything tangible in terms of the functioning of power." - Ward Churchill
