The old way,
'The same old way' is something like this:Now Carl's New Way and what not to do,
All the hard left and anti-imperialists call a meeting--one person, one vote, no matter what they represent size-wise or constituency-wise. They then decide the slogans, theme and key elements of the day. They may also decide who they want to keep away, such as 'capitalists' or elected officials who won't sign a pledge or antiwar Jews with wrong line on Palestine (take your pick), then set up an outreach committee to make visits and calls to get other people to come to the party and help put up the additional trimmings, besides what's already done.
This produces a few more names, but the demo still ends up basically the same old militant minority.--sometimes large, sometimes smaller.
Don't get me wrong. I'll do this any day over doing nothing.
One thing I wouldn't expect to be entertained seriously though, are silly notions that politicians not signing a pledge, or antiwar Jews with the wrong line regarding peace in the Middle East, be told they're not welcome and to go off and do their own thing elsewhere.Those anti-war jews ought to consider how long they'll be welcome if Progressives for Obama get to be shot-callers in a Obama administration.
As I said, to produce something different, I'm open to trying something different. But I've made it a point to listen not only to those who took part in our earlier efforts, but also to those who didn't, to those who weren't in the room, so to speak, but want this war over now nonetheless.
If you have better ideas, I'm all ears.
