I am concerned about the ‘new conditions’ in America, (which have actually been building for some time—maybe 40-50 years). I wonder about how willing the following groups are to harm their fellow Americans: USAFA cadets and USAF officers, in conjunction with various militias, elements of various law enforcement departments, and other military and various para-christian groups etc.
Irrationalism, xenophobia, nationalism, white supremacy, misogyny, anti-LGBT violence, and racist and anti-Semitic violence and aggression seem to be abroad in the land. There is also a growing push for heightened militarism and, likely, another war in the mideast.
We need solidarity in a mass organizational way—perhaps in conjunction with the unions. Certainly all of their members did not vote for Trump. And roughly 35% of unionized workers today are black.
Take care, brother.
