Obstacles to Change
The people who voluntarily act on the principle of justice are already making important changes; you can find them maligned in the news all the time. Some, like Cindy Sheehan, become celebrated, but most do not. And even the celebrated ones involved in mobilizing moral sanction often operate out of pocket. Those drawn to working within the system of career activism, however, frequently function as obstacles to change. Anyone who believed working for Obama would make a difference is unlikely to grasp that.
