Talk by John Nichols co-author of Dollarocracy given May 3, 2014 as part of the 28th Amendment National Roadshow at the Common Good Cafe at University Temple United Methodist Church in Seattle.
Only when each man and woman has a RIGHT to live freely on our own homeland will we have created a truly free people in America. When we can live for the first time without the invented threat of landlessness, of homelessness, of joblessness that puts us always in thrall to the corp/gov machinery of the rich we will have the time and space to create a new social design that is by and for the people.
Let’s not waste this passion, this movement on a half measure, let’s be wise enough, this once, to insist on real personal freedom for every American through an amendment that protects us at the most basic level of our lives – our need for a steady land base, a secure shelter, and the means to create our own, self sustaining food supply. Free land = free people; Free people = power.
