“Well, first you talk to one person, then you talk to another person, then you talk to another person…” – Cesar Chavez
How is change made? From discomfort. Comfortable people don’t move, they stay where they are because they are comfortable where they are. It’s the basic law of physics, an object at rest will remain at rest, unless something makes it move. A corrupt political establishment will stay corrupt, and a failing political system will keep failing us unless some force makes the people in charge change their ways.
In this commentary, Mike McCabe of BlueJean Nation explains the force is discomfort. Anxiety and fear are running high for many Americans. Now, he says, is the time to organize and unite, one person at a time.
