The crisis facing corporate America is extremely deep,
and unfortunately the only response to it from the Bush administration is to
focus on war. Clearly we are
approaching an urgent crossroads in history.
Either democracy will prevail, which will require an immense rekindling
of social interaction, face to face organizing and the re-assumption of
individual rights proclaimed in the Declaration of Independence and constituted
in the Bill of Rights, or plutocracy, assumed in the name of national security
and enforced in the manner of police states through history, will engulf
us. The Alliance for Democracy is just
that, an alliance for democracy, and with your help, together, we will fight on
to defend the dream that animates our lives. Nick Biddle, Executive Coordinator
