Making Democracy Real & Legal in the United States
David Cobb is a community organizer and attorney living in Eureka, CA when he's not on the road sharing his concerns and organizing for a more democratic USA. He has run for president on the Green Party ticket in the past. Presently he is a leader of the group Democracy Unlimited of Humbolt County, a group which is working toward leading a non-violent grassroots uprising to make democracy real and legal in the United States. Democracy Unlimitedís present focus toward legalized democracy is a response in particular to the recent Supreme Court decision that gives corporations the same rights as an individual. In the past, if a personís constitutional rights were being infringed upon, that person could go to the court system and find relief. However, with the January 2010 Supreme Court decision, now corporations have that same right as well. This means that now any effort to control the corporationís conduct through legislation is subject to being overturned in court. Cobb says this particular legislation giving corporations the same rights as an individual person is very dangerous.
He urges people to get involved, either at a federal level (www.movetoamend.org) or at a local level (www.duhc.org) to make change. Cobb believes that great change can be produced by joining together with your community of radicals, conservatives, democrats and republicansóbecause on a basic level we all have the same goals. We want clean air, good food, clean water and security. Our government and court systems will not provide these things for us without pressure. Historically these established institutions have instead worked to protect the property rights of the elite. We can change this through local nonviolent acts of civil disobedience.
He urges all of us to organize and connect with this very very important campaign.
