Here’s Ben Cohen of Ben & Jerry’s once again pressing into service his creative use of BBs, this time updating it to illustrate the dynamics of the current GOP tax scam. Even after reading about percentages and dollar figures, it can be difficult to get a handle on the relative amounts. This demonstration helps make the situation visceral. It may be too late to call the number displayed at the end, but there is a demonstration today, Monday Dec. 4th, at 4:30 pm at the Federal Building downtown (880 Front Street).
We at San Diego Free Press love watching all kinds of video. Those short visual stories entertain, inform, and agitate in a way completely different from the written word.
Since our platform is about expressing ideas and ideals instead of cash flow, clicks, or fundraising, we have the freedom to include a wide range of topics and formats that might not work elsewhere. We don’t need or want paid content, promotional materials, or story lines designed to please donors.
So the idea here is to present videos one or more of the editors feel speaks to them. Sometimes it will be news. Sometimes it will be history. And a lot of the time it will be culture. You can not and should not separate these things: it is diversity and intersectionality that makes our movement strong.
