Re: letter to the KC Star about photo priorities

Not surprising at all. I was there also and noticed that we got more "coverage" by fox 4 than the KC Star. We will never "reform" these institutions by the moral weight and rightousness of our position and/or argument, which is why KC Indy Media exists. Use it, the media is a tool of the people and for the people. Its time we reclaimed it from those who have taken it and use it for their own ends. Creating new institutions that are in line with our beliefs and opinions will literally create that new world we all strive for. It has to be this way; there are not very many attractive options. Creating these institutions, democratically controlled directly by the people within the shell of the old, is essential. If we do not build this frame work, when the old system falls away, we will have no stability from which to work. We do not have to plead with the ruling class and their institutions for fair and equal treatment. We do not have to plead with capitalists to put people before profits. And we do not have to plead with our "government" either. All we have to do is organize along class lines, practice mutual aid and respect and organize institutions and industry on principals of control from the bottom up. Start small businesses based on co-operative, collective ownership and decision making. Convert businesses you already work for or own along these lines. We have to be more afraid of what is happening to our world than we are of working together in a directly democratic manner. If we are truly serious about ending the exploitation and domination of man by man and man over man we have no choice but to eventuallly come to these conclusions. Any institution that allows for formal unchecked hierarchy, authortarianism and elitism beyond the direct democratic reach of the people is nothing more than a tool of oppression and exploitation. Top down control always creates class division, whether social or econimic. We can do better than that. We have to. "What better time than here, what better time than now!" -Zach De La Rocha
