  1. Any movement, if it’s to succeed, has to make more friends than enemies, and as we engage the issues, we have to do what we can to enlighten ourselves and our neighbors as to how we arrived at this godawful juncture in our history, so that we might find a way out of it. The plot has yet to thicken.
