Just be prepared. You will have a few days notice. And you’ll be asked to show up. You won’t need supplies. You won’t even need a vehicle except to get there. It doesn’t matter what it costs you to show up. You don’t get the privilege of ‘next time’. Nothing else matters. The world will never be the same afterward. And we’ll all go home wealthy. Because this is a for profit enterprise as well as a political enterprise. So stop asking. Stop talking. No bravado. No chest thumping. No internet rallying. Stop fantasizing and trying to be in control. Just show up and follow direction when you do. And plan to be in near constant motion once we go – collecting resources as you go. If you aren’t prepared to show up on two or three days notice from halfway across the country then you aren’t prepared. If you are prepared to show up on two or three says notice, then that’s all the preparation you need. If you have strong skills or limited skills it doesn’t matter. Most of the work is sourcing, observing, and communicating for those with the skills. All ‘Organizing” does is put a victim label on your head. All bravado does is put your name on the label on your head. Showing up and following direction does the opposite. Strategy is difficult. Tactics are stressful. Everything else is just work. And it’s mostly work. If the idiots in sandals can do it you can. It’s your nature. You’ve just failed to experience your true nature. It will come easily.
