Encouragement to the netroots

/ 31 January 2006

If you, like me, are mourning the entrance of Judge Alito onto the Supreme Court — for me, it’s not the privacy concerns, although those are there, it’s the executive privilege I’m upset about — then read some of the pieces floating through the blogosphere. Digby makes some important points about how the democratic leadership is actually beginning to pay attention to the grassroots. DHinMI points to the historical reasons why we need to stay involved with the Democratic Party. Meteor Blades draws allusions to the courage and strength of the civil rights movement and asks us to keep on keepin’ on. Finally read BodyandSoul on why democracy requires civil society, and what that means we need to invest in.
