When governments do not protect the public, then it becomes necessary for people to challenge these failures through nonviolent civil disobedience

Retired CIA Officer, now a peace and justice activist, Ray McGovern recently wrote in an article called The Moral Imperative of Activism that “This is our summer of discontent. The question we need to ask ourselves is whether that discontent will move us to action. Never in my lifetime have there been such serious challenges….”

These serious challenges exist in the form of multiple crises and the obstacles we face in overcoming them. Powerful forces are aligned to maintain the status quo and are adept at preventing disruption of it. Corporations control the political process, the courts, think tanks, the media, education and many non-profits. The vast national security apparatus monitors us and does what it can to prevent effective resistance actions through infiltration of activist groups, as was recently discovered in Washington, DC and Oklahoma.
