How excited is Ralph Nader to see the rise of the netroots?
In a conversation with NY Press scribe John DeSio:
“I don’t think much is going to come of it,” says Nader of the current hybrid of politics and technology. “I don’t think the electronic media is very motivating for people to really act. I think person-to-person is really the only way. Marches, demonstrations, living room meetings, when people connect human-to-human, not through some screen. That tends to work throughout history. We had greater mass movements 100 years ago without any telephone, automobile, anything like we have today.”
