Quickypinion on Independence Day

This federal holiday commemorates America’s Declaration of Independence, which in our minds is part of the American Revolution. Isn’t it? So, I wonder. Should we on that day not think about how unfinished that revolution for liberty and common good is, when we are practically enslaved by money lords? And shouldn’t we, instead of playing with warlike fireworks, discuss with our friends and families how to build powerful bottom-up democracy and make possible a Good Life for All? Just a thought I shared.
