Why it matters


As Naomi Klein has pointed out, part of the Trump administration’s strategy is to keep us in shock, disoriented, and fearful. When catastrophes happen for which we don’t have a narrative, it’s easier for corporate forces to come in and shape the narrative in service of their own profit-driven agenda. An important strategy for resisting this “shock and awe” tactic is to find each other, share our ideas, read, listen, connect, and develop our own narrative, together.

  • Hold dinner discussions with like-minded people. Consider inviting folks outside of your inner circle.
