When Will America Have Its "Charlie Moment"
Last night on Revolution, a new show on NBC that depicts the remnants of the USA 15 years after electricity suddenly stopped working, Charlie (the hot blondie blue chick) chastised two compatriots because they were so intent on stealing a sniper rifle that they had not even thought about what the sniper was guarding ... thirty enslaved people. The show is fictional, of course, but hardly irrelevant: people today, in the good ole USA, are working against their will, usually at mere subsistence levels. When will some Charlie out there awaken the nation to the slaves amongst us? Well, President Obama may be trying to do so, TODAY, 25 Sept. 2012, in his speech from the Clinton Global Initiative at Noon EDT. We shall see.
