Speaking Truth To Power

Since the following video of testimony in the current American IRS investigation has gone virtually un-broadcast on Canadian TV and most American media as well, I thought I’d offer it here.

You do not have to share this woman’s politics or world view to understand her feelings. This is how most of us feel when we’re put in the position of having to confront government or the massive bureaucracies (both public and private) that intersect much of our lives.

But unless we are willing to confront those powers, to have this woman’s passion and courage, their strength and their capability to determine our futures grows unchecked.

Suck it up, kids! Being quiet changes nothing for the better.
