To the editors of World-Outlook
In response to your question on whether I made a mistake by checking the monthly box for my donation, I do intend to make my $100 contribution to World-Outlook as a monthly pledge.
In the absence of any semblance of a revolutionary workers party I don’t know any other way I can make a meaningful political/financial contribution to the world. As long as I can keep doing occasional work and musical gigs to supplement Social Security, I can afford it.
I know you see World-Outlook as a very modest effort, but for me each time I receive an issue (a blog?), it’s like being thrown a life preserver. It is so very frustrating to witness the social disaster that threatens humanity today knowing that revolutionary continuity has essentially been lost. World-Outlook offers at least a glimmer of that continuity. I greatly appreciate the work of the editors and other contributors to World-Outlook.
By the way, if you need extra copy-editing help, I’d be happy to do some.
Editors’ reply: Rick, thank you very much! We welcome your offer for assistance with copy-editing. Your first assignment is coming soon.

Just a reminder to readers that even if you can’t financially contribute, hitting the “LIKE” button and sharing the link on Twitter (@WorldOutlook3) and/or Facebook (@World-Outlook) helps the blog to find new readers more easily. Making a habit of liking and sharing these powerful documents of workers efforts to improve their working conditions will only help all of us.
