Politics from below

As I've written about presidential politics more than I care to admit, I need to go on the record here, before the sane people willing to run for president lose their first primaries.

Electing a president or getting elected to the presidency are not the ways to bring about long-term, positive change.

Core goal: the most power possible for all people over their own lives.

Trying to put one person in power is not the way to do that.

So borrowing from the Zapatistas, we need a politics from below: a movement that builds power for everyone.

My take is that a key part of doing this is creating a democratic communications infrastructure.
