The Memo released by Washington this week shows us that Washington is also a place where people like to see things go their way.
In every community for eons there has always been, and will always be groups of people who like to see things go their way and are willing to try and make that happen.
Montclair is no different than any other, nor is Washington, D.C. On Friday, February 2nd, 2018 Washington released the long awaited “Memo” and the world did not end.
I took a poll of several friends, family and colleagues on the memo, and as frightening as it was made out to be, as destructive to national security as it was said to be, none of my peers took the time to read it. In the end it is not surprising, not earth-ending. The Memo is telling us to where we as a community find ourselves.
From our local baseball U12 club, through our community blogs, our police department, the mayor’s office, the county executive’s office, all the way up to the FBI, CIA and NSA, the methods are all the same. Just a group of people who like to see things go their way.
We citizens are all that stand between this destructive behavior and anarchy. Without taking either of the current combatant’s side will we as citizens step up and put an end to this exclusionary process?
