working revolution

This is the title of my buddy Chad's blog. I think it's a great title. Chad, correct me if I'm wrong, but you're fired up to do something about the sorry state of things. Something big. So the question is what do we do? What can we do? I really don't have an answer. The other night I was thinking it would be cool to organize working folk somehow, completely under the radar, like in the movie Fight Club. How to do this? good question. The organizing principle would be straightforward, working people organizing to take a bigger slice of pie. Imagine the next election day, starting off with a general strike, then every poll and prediction completely turned on its head by a huge voting bloc of previously apathetic and ignored workers.

Right now there is a Social Change Conference going on at OSU. Maybe I'll take a stroll over there.
