Debbie Lusignan is calling out for the fierce truth about the levels of corruption and fraud America is facing and has been going along with for too long, requesting bold action and the courage to sit with being uncomfortable for a little bit.
Once you've been burnt by the political system you tend to stay away from getting burnt again. The hope with the newly initiated effort by the Justice Democrats' movement is that the supporter base has grown exponentially through the election disaster and that with masses of people getting behind the movement it would generate a dynamic and eventually lead to success by reforming the Democratic Party. There have been endless efforts to reach a change from within the system before Justice Democrats, and we saw all of them being cooped by the democratic establishment. The lesson one takes out of that is that either masses OR interests of the masses don't matter. What if the interests of the masses are combined with the masses? Is it possible that public interest only becomes meaningful in directing the system towards democratic goals once it finds a powerful chanel in the system and is it possible that this has not been done properly enough in the past? I'm refering to the narrative of the political system putting people asleep in order to gain control. So if we state that we've seen reform efforts from within the system failing over and over again, is it that we might be comparing pears with apples by overseeing the one aspect which is critical to those movements succeeding in their goals of reformation?! It's undisputable that there will never be reform happening in harmony with the system that is being reformed. The system and the parties in charge will always have the tendency to preserve the status quo. So reform efforts have to be forced upon the system, meaning there has to be more power behind the reform movement than there is behind the preservative forces. Having a reform movement embedded into the system will always weaken it's effectiveness because of the mechanisms put in place specifically for that purpose. With a system as corrupt and fraudulent as the one currently in place in the US, it is questionable whether those preservative mechanisms can be overcome and evidently that's what has killed all the reformation efforts in the past. The question at hand is whether the reason for failure has been that all the efforts so far have lacked the imperative masses behing the movements or whether we're facing an at-its-core-undemocratic political design that makes it literally impossible to heal from within no matter how many people support reforms.
The natural course is that people try to change the system by following its rules leaving them frustrated & loosing hope in the political system. This phenomenon is well advanced. The election of Trump is really a symptom of that frustration either by people going for protest voting or abstaining from voting. The election of Trump shows how many people are not willing to participate in the system at the current level where they know that they will get fucked over by either one of the candidates.
Debbie Lusignan from the Sane Progressive is making the point for an outside reformation that takes a rather revolutionary outline. This sounds more disruptive than the samewhat transitional reform strategy of the Justice Democrats. Stressing the need for personal accountability, not being seduced back into a broke political system by clinging onto a failed narrative. She calls out for the fierce truth about the levels of corruption and fraud America is facing and has been going along with for too long, requesting bold action and the courage to sit with being uncomfortable for a little bit. Hear what she has to say:
