A vision for constructive engagement in the US
This is a sort of manifesto from community organizer Aaron Goggans. The tone may rub some the wrong way at times as too touch-feely or too rambling. But I think he does a great job of articulating a wide-reaching vision of the injustices suffered across the Americas, tying middle-class whites in the US suburbs to indigenous Peruvian peasants and Brazilian blacks in the favelas. And he gives a preview of the types of resistance, action, and constructive engagement we should all be doing to fight these injustices and make a better life for everyone.
