Thanks for your feedback.
To be successful, OWSers need to step up and run for office. OWSers need to spend more energy writing and calling their senators. OWSers need to attend public hearings on bills they care about. OWSers need to vote more often.
None of these things are happening.
I continuously offer advice to my readers how to engage politicians, help write bills, and support policy changes. And I’ve given examples of how this is an effective way to change environmental policies. It’s not glamorous. It’s slow and takes a lot of effort. But it works.
If OWSers don’t engage in the political process, they will fail. This isn’t condescension. It’s a reality check. My advice, as I wrote in my post, is to engage politicians asap or suffer an embarrassing failure.
Best of luck,
