Messaging, its where we lose the battle on the Left. It is critical. For visual artists, like myself, I think of the nation as a color made up of millions of points. It is messaging which begins to change the common color of red towards purple and then to blue, where the true promise of the constitution, and the ture spirit of all the world’s religious ideals are realized: Liberty, true freedom, economies and government that champion individual rights, responsibly stewards the environment and realizes the truly equal and humane dispensation of justice.
Each week on the Revolution and Beer show( Saturday’s, 11am in Chicago on www,que4.org, Que4 Radio, AM1680) we hold a roundtable discussion of the week’s and the progressive movement’s top issues to help forge strong, succinct messaging on those issues.
Our aim is not to trick you into believing or accepting our point of view, as the Right does. They employ guilt through the misrepresentation of religion, which they pick and choose from, or in blinding arguments with fear and hysteria. On the Left, those better argument are too often eclipsed by the slick and polished messaging on the Right, all of it designed to protect the wealthy and powerful. Our aim is to combat that message, because at its core, progressive and Liberal ideas better address those critical issues of human rights, dignity, true liberty and equality.
So join us. Join in the conversation. Call in or come in. Where else in any media has there ever been such a bold and audacious invitation? But the airwaves are the people’s. they were meant for the people, until corporations and the powerful stole them to trick your better and deeper sensibilities. It is time to begin taking them back.
