I attended the National Conference on Citizenship last month. One of their key initiatives is citizen participation in their communities, states, and nation. Branches of government, the armed forces and newly inducted citizens who pledged alligiance to this country were highlights.
I find it ironic how some disgruntled but easily manipulated people are suggesting we need less government. They’re erroneously opposing an infrastructure they could be strategically utilizing. A few tweaks to laws currently on the books and enforcement would be a far better benefit that trying to burn down the entire house.
One of the ongoing conversations we have at this forum is how to accurately assess the current landscape and make whatever adjustments are necessary to work for our interests. This interview with Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was a wonderful overview of her work in empowering women. You’ll probably need to watch it in increments.
