"Civil rights was about the State protecting you from the injustice of society, and providing the individual with a reasonable measure of respect and dignity, but the silver rights movement is about you gaining the tools and ability to protect yourself, and affording you and your family your own measure of respect and dignity. 

The civil rights movement was about race and the color line, and was waged and won in the streets, but the silver rights movement is about class and poverty, and it will be waged and won in the suites; from corporate board rooms to student classrooms. 

We live in a free-enterprise democracy, and silver rights is about making capitalism and free enterprise finally relevant for the poor, and to make capitalism and free enterprise finally work for the poor."
