As we wrote earlier, we don't think we are going to win without creating more full-time or at least half-time occupations and careers for organizers, lobbyists, writers, and so on in political change in our communities.
For many of us these political activities will be naturally combined with "transition" activities that generally fall under the Gandhian "constructive program." But the constructive program in all its forms is not enough, because there is a war going on. The Koch brothers want the resources you save, to put it bluntly. There won't be peace, and there won't be justice, and there won't even be a for millions of people and species unless we protect them and make those conditions.
As we have said previously "we" need to offer jobs to capable young people with whatever resources we have got in order to accomplish particular, and as it will turn out, highly disruptive political goals. We are in an emergency situation. This quality is somehow missing from most of the political discourse we see on the left, here and everywhere. Where are the resources to do this? They are in our own homes and bank accounts and those of our friends and their friends, but the social and political "software" is largely missing. We are a society which bowls alone, as Robert Putnam wrote so long ago.
