Politics And Repudiating Community Organizing


Douglas Ruskoff writes a very provocative blog post about Guiliani and Palin’s repudiation of community organizing. He goes on to write in a very impassioned way that he believes that the motivation underlying this rejection could really hurt our government.

I hadn’t thought of it before. But there is this dichotomy there that’s disturbing. Because online, for the most part, it’s a celebration of the wisdom of the crowds, and crowdsourcing, and social networking.
