Not Just Symbols, Not So Simple | THE POLITICUS

Not Just Symbols, Not So Simple

As the Confederate flag comes down in SC, it’s more than just a symbolic victory in pushing back against white supremacy, yet not the one solution to racism in America.

As NBC, Macy’s and the PGA dump Trump, it’s a signal of intolerance no longer tolerated as well as a real hit against a megalomaniac’s power, but not enough to make him—or his views—vanish.

The Greek referendum send a sign to Europe that austerity bullies won’t go unchallenged, but the answer to Greece’s and Europe’s challenges will be a lot more complicated than a simple vote.

Progressives are winning a series of fights, but each one unearths deeper problems. They’re not just symbols, but answers are not so simple.

Share reactions, scheme actions, enjoy interactions as you share a night and share your politics at your local progressive social club.
