In the past heroes have been known by their ability to rise above the frey and rescue people from burning homes, saving flood victims as with the Katrina disaster or in general helping others survive an otherwise fatal situation.
Today we have a fatal situation facing the entire country.
Our United States Constitution is near death. Dying from a neo-con assault, attempted murder on the backbone of our democracy.
All our forefathers had established to ensure our democracy flourishes is in danger of being wiped out and replaced with a fascist regime who's' only intent is to further the profit making potential of mega-corporations and enslave the American people to them.
Who among us has the strength to overcome this assault?
Right now the fascist dictator Bush and his minions are working hard to make sure you do not know what they are doing. This Administration which is the most secretive since the Nixon era
is infiltrating the depths of government to ensure they can gain complete control of all aspects of the government, witnessed by the dismantling of the EPA, the FCC, the US Forest Service and many others, essentially nullifying any rules that would interfere with their goal of domination.
This authoritarian regime has rendered pollution laws intended to keep us safe, moot.
The Congress has proven they are completely incapable of stopping this abuse of power and have basically rubber stamped every bill requested to accomplish the Administrations goals.
The Administration has started an unjustified war against a sovereign nation, Iraq, to further the mega-oil corporations agenda of world oil conquest. President Bush has declared the Constitution a "goddamn piece of paper" Now an illegal assault on Iran seems entirely possible, even with an obvious lack of support worldwide.
This assault on the core values of America continues unabated and without mercy.
Who will be the hero/heroes? Will it be you?
(From DWF's inaugural post Oct 5 2006)
My early pontification visits the hero realm.
Are heroes even possible in today's world?
Or do heroes negate the need for action on the peoples part, mainly hoping that someone else will do the job for us?
There are leaders and there are followers, which are you?
