I've added a few posts over the last few days. I've been downtown watching and listening.The time has come for me to ask this basic question.
Personally, I think the demonstrations can be very effective. I'd like to see public financing of campaigns and specific legislation limiting the amount of money spent on lobbying. I'm all for ending the practice of buying the government.
What effect do you think these demonstrations can have? What would you like to see happen?
I'm not looking for, 'change the system, man'. I was thinking about the civil rights movement in the '60s, the grandaddy of all protest movements in America, and what it accomplished. It changed America for sure. But it didn't end racism. In the end I surmised, it was the legislation enacted that is the lasting effect.
What do you want to happen as a result of these demonstrations?
