Hong Kong protesters inspire thoughts of evolutionary, revolutionary “flow.” Their political demonstrations flow like water: fluid, changing, adjusting, powerful. They are intentional. They are tactical.

The Revolutionary Flow, State By State
Centrist Democrats, here in America, are doing their best to block progressive flow. They are like beavers, not water. They growl for party “unity,” though they might better join the political revolution that’s flowing from coast to coast… if they want to be unified with voters. So far, we have 187 revolutionary candidates running for national office in 2020. See the breakdown below:
Protest Flows Across the Planet
All around the world, people are demonstrating. At first, protests broke out over something specific: a tax, rising prices, a bad election, judicial independence. Hong Kong. France. Chile. Ecuador. Lebanon. Iraq. Spain. The United Kingdom. Bolivia. Brazil.
Then, even in cases where concessions were won, the protests continued to flow — more like an uprising — for greater principles such as economic justice, political freedom, climate action, and to fight corruption.
Take a look at the following resources. They’ll help fill-in information gaps surrounding the waves of protest that currently flow across our planet.

Getting In the Progressive “Flow”
The “flow” experience is known for being highly enjoyable. So relax. STOP resisting.
Stop resisting Trump. Stop resisting Millennials. Stop resisting Bernie Sanders.
Turn off network TV. The political revolution is not being televised. Find some reliable online independent news sources, instead.
Get the Big Picture. Get in the “flow.” Join the Progressive Movement: fight for someone you don’t know. It’s beautiful, and there’s a future in it.

Thanks for the update and all the invaluable links to more info. Love the “be like water” strategy of the Hong Kong protestors.
Progress takes severe shock but it works!
Sadly, the people who fight necessary change the hardest don’t understand that they make it so much more difficult with their delaying of the inevitable. If we don’t change our suicidal ways the world will do it for us.
for progressives 🙂
Brilliant ideas that become actions. so inspiring and well-intentioned! Thanks Lynn Costanza
On a personal level, as I avoid shopping madly on Black Friday and the ensuing days until Xmas, I believe I am making my own protest statement against corporate greed.
That’s the ticket. More the holiday spirit to you!
