Getting the Goods

Celebrity analysts like Chomsky can be instructive, but dwelling on the grand spectacle is not the same as effective engagement. Just look at ANSWER and Move On.

Communication and linguistics studies can help develop better strategies in undermining the anti-democratic movement, but they have to be deployed through organized community actions--actions based on strategic research and education, not the fantasies and ideologies of ivory tower pundits.

Fighting the war of ideas over democratic governance is aided immensely by exposing the many frauds of poseurs, thus depriving them of resources, legitimacy and liberties. Getting the goods on the cons in one's community is a good way to learn the skills of investigative research and tools of organizing.
