There are a few grievances already, and I’m bracing in anticipation of really bad news today. When we live in one of the most secure countries in the world, and the leaders are advocating policies that justify mistreating people in the interest of national security – there is something else going on.
We need Gandhi. We need massive faith and mobilization to know that Gandhi achieved independence from a polite colonial influence such as Great Britain for India. Nelson Mandela achieved liberation from apartheid. Can words really counter the guns of the most powerful?
If targeting of sanctuary cities begins to occur, this man has declared war on his own people.
There have to be massive good consequences for standing up to this level of threat to human dignity. Divesting from wealth that pillages. Will that stop the pillaging? Nonviolent resistance already saw Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Nelson Mandela. The struggles become harder. We need G_d.
