First Hundred Days

If there's a lesson in the much-hyped first hundred days of the Obama Administration, it is that change does not happen by hope; it happens by taking control of our lives. Taking control of our lives does not happen through the ritual of voting; it happens through research, education, organizing, and action by communities protecting themselves from corrupt institutions and corrosive markets. Protecting ourselves from corruption does not happen by suspending our disbelief in charlatans; it happens by becoming politically literate, supporting and joining others in attacking frauds.
