I'm just an old guy now, a veteran of the '60s protests.
We failed to bring the real issues to the people.
We had the war to deal with and maybe that was the important thing, but I've waited 30 years for folks like you, men and women of courage and conviction, to start the conversation that has to take place.
I am so proud of all of you.
I agree that demands must be specific and sophisticated.
But I do believe that an overall, short, to-the-point statement is also important.
Please keep hammering on these two --
Economic Democracy - as the logical progression of the American Revolution and the evolution of human beings living together in peace and harmony on this planet,
and Economic Justice - as the ethical yardstick of a great country.
Please have heart.
