but why, you scream in horror!
next month is the 14th anniversary of Politics, Re-Spun…it’s time for a reframing/rebranding/pivot to something more…betterer, or more bigly, if you will.
14 years ago, in the twisted Orwellian months after 9/11 where words did not mean what words are, it was important to de-spin the political and re-spin it for political, economic, social and environmental justice.
but re-spinning isn’t enough, godammit!
we need to pivot
into a new world, a new era
into a new reconciliation with First Nations, Métis and Inuit
into a recognition that male supremacy and rape culture need to end yesterday
into a dynamic where white supremacy and colonial physical, economic, political and social occupations are acknowledged, addressed, reparations defined and issued, and TRC’d to a new sense of nationhood
into a new interdependent, symbiotic relationship with the environment
into a new relationship with systems theory and radical things like evidence-based policy
onto a train that ET3s/Hyperloops down the track laid by the Leap Manifesto
into a speedy embrace of the post-carbon energy infrastructure
into a realm where we practice sociology with glee
and where we intentionally, proactively and collectively build the society we want
because we’re running out of time before our future grandchildren condemn all of us for being useless tools and dinosaurs
it’s time to begin!
THAT is why We Pivot!
and in moments, it will happen at http://WePivot.net
