Strategizing for a Living Revolution

I want to encourage folks to check out an article in the Resources section of Aaron Petcoff’s blog.  I’m sending folks there, instead of to a link of the article because I know how excited I get when I get mad blog hits, so you should follow the link below. The piece was written by George Lakey about movement strategy. By looking at global struggles against repressive regimes, global capitalism, racism, and other systems of domination, Lakey lays out a formula for thinking about systemic change. This piece does way more than teach an extremely smart strategy for broad based change, its also just really inspiring to read about successful movements. Its hard to remember sometimes that winning is a possibility, so check out this piece, get smarter, be inspired, and other generally positive things.

    Thanks a bajillion dude!

    BTW, George Lakey is also clearly influenced by another author, Gene Sharp (who actually trained the Otpur activists). I think Lakey is doing a good job of advocating a radical interpretation of Sharp’s work. So if you’re interested make sure to check him out too!

    Thanks again buddy!
