Activism: Compelling Sociodrama

October 8/2015


Larry Bogad, Minister of Tactical Performance in the USDAC National Cabinet

I #DareToImagine a nation where progressive social movements are creative, dialogic, democratic, artful and impactful. Where their public actions are canny, savvy and infused with charismatic and compelling sociodrama that draws more and more energy and numbers. Where nonviolent, joyfully determined mass campaigns score major victories for peace, social justice and fairness in policing, education, and healthcare. Where climate justice is the standard by which our industrial and economic policies are determined. Where the Orwellian, clownish hatefest we have been watching during this election season is relegated to where it belongs—as the least entertaining part of a tiny circus sideshow.
