Antiwar activists, where are you?

Boston Globe

My fellow young Americans, the evidence is mounting that this war we are fighting in Iraq is not a 'just' war. No, this is a dirty fight, and we're in it for the long haul. But I guess that's the problem -- 'we' are not in it at all. 'We' are here in our land of iPods and cellphones, luxuriating in our apathetic comas while our soldiers are over there. I know what you're thinking. You have that magnetic yellow ribbon on your SUV, and, boy, if that is not uber-effective I do not know what is. But let me ask you, if you'd just put your Podcast on pause and cellphone on silence for a moment, is this all enough? Two wars ago, during the Vietnam disaster, there was Generation Activist. The youth of America rallied against 'the man.' How did they do it? They didn't have e-boards, or e-mail for that matter. Yet somehow, this archaic mob of longhairs and peaceniks managed to mobilize. They marched on the National Mall. They protested everywhere, even in bed. ... Their methods were not always nonviolent, but they were creative and incorrigible. Why is Generation Apathetic unable to have the same resounding roar?
