'It is still one of the tragedies of human history that the 'children of darkness are frequently more determined and zealous than the children of light' Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
I look at that MLK quote juxtaposed against our own early 21st century time frame and right now it's clear the children of darkness, who I interpret as anti-human rights forces, are on the march.
They seem to be more determined and more willing to do what it takes (legally and illegally) to get their agenda passed than we children of light are.
Our job as the 'children of light' isn't easy. We have to build consensus amongst a vast, ethnically diverse coalition with multiple interests, but educate, cajole, lobby, and describe a vision of the world as we wish and need it to be.
While we're trying to accomplish that task, we shout to be heard above the Conservative Noise Machine and their reams of rapid fire propaganda from Faux News u.
All the children of darkness have to do as defenders of the jacked up status quo is lie, cheat, obfuscate and bamboozle good people into working against their own economic and political interests.
You know, like the teabaggers.
But if we children of light wish to see a country and a world that reflects our values instead of one of fear, anger and hate, then we need to get busy making it happen.
And the first step to it is going to the ballot box and making sure we elect candidates who are committed to making that type of positive world a reality.
While we're organizing to win elections for the next thirty to forty years it's going to take to erase all the conservacrap set in motion by Saint Ronald of Reagan's election and 30 years of mean spirited godless conservatism, we also need to be building our coalitions and doing a much better job of articulating our message.
Because the only way the children of light are going to overcome the children of darkness is to become more tough minded and determined than them to fight for our vision of America and save the conservasheeple from themselves.
