Guernica: So government won’t save us.

Roy Scranton: [laughs] No, it’s not going to save us. But local organization can help. That’s why we all need to engage in that boring, time-consuming, old-school progressive thing of actually getting involved in governance at whatever level we can, starting at the local level. We’ve seen again and again how important local organization is in moments of crises. When your city or neighborhood floods, it’s the people acting locally who reach out and help with any kind of efficacy. The government isn’t going to save us, but it can at least help us if we make it ours.
