Crash go the Gates

No pun intended Bill. I'm no Daily KOSsack fan, but I have to agree with the following statement by Markos Moulitsas and Jerome Armstrong who wrote in their new book, Crashing the Gate:
The fact is that we are part of a truly organic effort that is decentralized. We are no more "leaders" than anyone else who frequents our websites. We have laid the groundwork and helped build the "public square," but it is the community that provides the energy and shapes our agenda.

That's why this movement is so effective - and so threatening to established powers. It is leaderless. It cannot be harness, controlled, or co-opted.
Well said, but when they refer to the "movement" and "community" I hope that they are referencing the wider blogosphere and not just the fringe element who frequent their blogs. One can only hope.

" One can only hope." I echo the sentiment but wouldn't that be a little too idealistic. ;-)

I can't verify if the previous comment is from Jerome Armstrong because his profile is private. But if it is then I'm gratified.
