Why is it we Americans have significantly fewer demonstrations than those in Europe, like in France or Greece?
Well, I certainly hear you. The truth is, as I see it, we are early in a serious, long decline for the standard of living of the US working class unless it finds some way to become an organized political force. And part of that process is education and organization to undo the ideological job that has been done on the American people - making them deeply suspicious of collective action and political organization and often unable to see their own predicament in social and political terms.
So my conclusion has been to do everything I can to provide information and analysis that would otherwise be missing. That is the same as many others in the US are doing. Analyze and organize. We don't have the analytical left tradition of the French and we likewise lack their much stronger union, left political, and social organizations, so we are not yet ready to mount the actions that they have. We have to start at an earlier stage. But what other choice is there? There really is no individual escape from a social crisis, just as it is a truism that you cannot solve a social crisis with individual solutions...hard as such lessons are for US citizens to learn or accept.
