Restoring Democracy

Courage is not something often witnessed in America. I thought about that when watching Pakistani lawyers standing up against militarized police protecting the recently resigned tyrant of their country. Can you imagine American lawyers doing that?

Chronicling America's tyranny is good as far as it goes, but bearing witness only does so much. Removing tyranny requires refusing to go along; refusing to participate in criminal enterprise as government, refusing to benefit from militarism.

Everyone has a role to play in restoring democracy to America. All it takes is courage.
