This man is visiting UNCA this evening. Go if you can, its free. A quote from his book that is especially interesting in light of our mere 19% voter turnout yesterday. He says The majority of voting-age citizens do not vote. . . They know that political leadership is confined to two parties that are both parasitic on corporate money and interests. To choose one or the other is a little like black people choosing between the left-wing and the right-wing versions of the Dred Scott decision. There is a difference but not much-though every difference does matter. - So much for Ashevillians not turning out to vote because theyre happy with what they have. . . I posit that apathy is the true perpetrator. Go see Cornell West tonight.
