We could all do more. We really could.
Attorney Tom Cox knows it:
Martin Andelman shows it:
Join his army of Doers. Spend Two Minutes to Help a Disabled War Veteran Being Put Through the BoA Rigors
As Martin notes, we need to get better organized. And these action steps, if everybody does them, can have a great impact.
It makes me think of an old joke that we used to have, based on a Jon Stewart Daily Show skit, where after 9/11, people would put an American flag sticker on their SUV, and he would say, “It’s the least you can do. No seriously, the very least.” So Marc and I would always say that when we saw people putting for the absolute minimal effort on something. But in some cases, like here, minimal effort times a hundred thousand people can make a real impact.
As we’ve always known, in this homeowner/middle class/foreclosure fight, our greatest strength is strength in numbers. They might have more money, more politicians in their pockets, more judicial allegiance (for some reason), but we have the masses.
