Hi, I am a total advocate of Cascadian independence, but I don't live in Eugene or Portland, though I've spent quality time in both cities. I've spent most my life, when not traveling in poverty, in rual Oregon. I just wanted to point out, that to a lot of people out here, you are seen as arrogant elitist, and you can't just dismiss this as redneck, reactionary thinking. The working class lives in the small towns, while you work your customer service jobs.
There is no way a real movement can be developed as long as the "movement" is really just a scene for hipsters. Do you think the chaw chewing country boy loves, Bush's great increase in federal goverment? They are smarter then you think, it's mainly religion that puts them against us. How hard could it be to prove the case of Jesus as anarchist, or at least a socialist.
Well, sorry to go ranting, my point is, there will be no mass movemont until we can speak to the mill worker just as well as to the college student. The IWW wasn't built on bike messengers, in the NorthWest it was built on loggers. The fringe may be fun, but it's no revolution. The babyboomers proved that. Just a thought, thanks.
