I AM BEGGING ALL RADICALS TO CONVERGE, NOW. Contact me at: email@example.com
Saul Alinsky, U. Chicago, arguably the first true "Radical" of the mid 1900's wrote that (and I synthesize):
CONSERVATIVE: A conservative is someone that does not want change AND WILL FIGHT LIKE HELL TO PREVENT IT.
LIBERAL: A liberal wants change WITH THEIR HEAD, speaks eloquently, organizes lots of events, but RARELY FIGHTS MUCH for anything.
RADICAL: A RADICAL is someone that so wants change with their HEAD & HEART SO DESPERATELY that they are the MOST FORMIDABLE FIGHTER OF ALL (Think Dr. King. Think Gandhi, think Saul Alinsky, think Stefania).
Tonight, to my amazement, I ended the Hunger Strike. Why? So that I can resume it almost immediately, with strength, if the opportunity to bring this Genocide TO AN END NOW can be developed. Although last night was miserable (my stomach was VERY unhappy; 2 hours sleep), indications are I could have gone the 30-40 days with relative ease. I HOPE to have the opportunity to verify this VERY SOON!!!!
To my amazement (having all last night to think) I FOR THE FIRST TIME, FOR THE FIRST TIME!... I SAW WITH CLARITY HOW TO STOP THE GENOCIDE. NOW I MUST TRY TO BRING THIS, OR ITS EQUIVALENT, TO REALITY.
There is a FATAL assumption among the Genocide Activists: CREATING AWARENESS AND CONCERN AMONG AMERICANS IS NOT THE ANSWER!!!!!!!!!!!
MAKING DARFUR GENOCIDE AN EMERGENCY, !!!!EMERGENCY!!!! FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, AND THE PEOPLE OF NATO IS THE ANSWER!!!!!
HOW TO STOP THE GENOCIDE:
1. IF IT WERE AN EMERGENCY, AN EEMMEERRGGEENNCCYY TO THE UNITED STATES PEOPLE TO BRING THIS GENOCIDE TO AN IMMEDIATE CLOSE… WE COULD DO SO… EASILY…EEAASSIILLYY!!, IMMEDIATELY!!!! Khartoum is a petty government of bullies, not a principle among them to fight for, raping and plundering the country. If as Eric Reeves proposes (sudanreeves.org) we exerted our influence we could have a NATO PEACE KEEPING FORCE on the ground, SUPPORTING THE AU immediately. Khartoum scurries away into their rat-holes, begging for mercy, pleading for terms that would have NATO go away. Duh.
2. WE COULD CREATE THE EMERGENCY IF 1000'S OF OUR CROWN JEWELS, !!!OUR STUDENTS!!!, YES, OUR STUDENTS, IN THE US AND OTHER NATO COUNTRIES WERE ON HUNGER STRIKE, RESOLVED TO STAY ON STRIKE UNTIL NATO WAS ON THE GROUND… NATO ON THE GROUND WOULD HAPPEN, FAST.
3. IF IT WERE AN EMERGENCY AMONG THE 1000'S OF STUDENTS, THE POTENTIAL RADICALS I ENVISION, THEY WOULD IMMEDIATELY UNDERTAKE THIS STRIKE.
4. WE COULD CREATE THE EMERGENCY AMONG THE POTENTIAL STUDENT RADICALS WITH 10-50 PEOPLE, MOSTLY WELL-PLACED (respected, visible, known, elite campuses) STUDENTS, AND OTHERS (I'M IN!!!!!!) ON HUNGER STRIKE UNTIL THE 1000'S JOINED, OR ELSE. NO HOLDS BARRED.
"But Jay, THERE ARE OTHER WAYS TO END THIS IMMEDIATELY!," you say. I'm all ears!!!!! Otherwise, let’s get on with this, OR face that you have chosen, CHOSEN!!!, the extermination of 400,000 more of our Darfur Family in the next 9 months.
Ps: CONTACT ME. Restoredarfur@cs.com LET'S DO IT.
Pps: You lead, I'll follow. I'll carry the waste like Stefania. I'll do the typing. I don't care. Let's Rescue and Restore our Darfur Family. IT IS TIME TO PUT UP, OR SHUT UP.
