I doubt we need torchlight rallies with firebrand zealots pounding the
podium.
A quiet turn of the wheel of fortune seems a better approach. I always
thought that
life here in the USA and most everywhere else meant that we live in a free
country,
civilized, the land of opportunity with plenty of access to economic
betterment.
Steve, to have to be constantly reminded of the negative forces we face
saps our energy.
Better that we stay focused on taking full responsibility for our own
survival and well being
and sharing what we learn with other like-minded people while forming
community around what
our needs are and how we can meet those needs individually and through
group cooperation.

Maybe Georg has a few words about this.
