Where do we go from here?

In another thread, Res Ipsa notes that what we’re witnessing is akin to the last vestiges of a failed ancient regime with those in power routinely ignoring calls for radical change. We don’t disagree. Res then asks this question which is the subject of this thread – What’s next and where do we go from here? To use exact language,

Where do we go from here? Is it time to move beyond the conventional rally and demonstration?

Is it time to name names, identify those who have been enriched through kickbacks and their own greed, and call them out at every opportunity?

I suppose that one could gather our opinion on these matters from reading the 425+ pages of this blog. We are not the leaders. You are the leaders. This project was launched because most of major media does not have the dedicated resources and much of the public – and judges themselves – did not have an interest to tear this can of worms apart with what they themselves could not say. Someone needed to manage the ministry of truth and hold them in check just long enough for others to smell the morning coffee and wake up on the right side of the bed. Before this project was launched – and let’s be clear that this is a project with a defined set of goals – there were many before us that had always known that the emperor had no clothes, yet they had not previously organized, knowing that as individual voices, they would be marginalized and retaliated against.

These fears and this reality still exists for many, yet we are a government  of the people, by the people and for the people and these things must change. 

So as we promised The OBT some time ago and as we were reminded by Res’s comment,

Where do we go from here?
