So many people are saying Bernie is done...

But it has never been about Bernie. It is and has always been about his message: Wake up! Smell the politicians! Remember your power, and use it! He has achieved great things simply by not standing down, not shutting up, not buying into the PC stance that what really matters most is having the first... Sign in to see full entry.

Fascism rearing it's ugly snout...

Robert Reich has pointed out that there has been a surge of neo-fascism rising in the world, and that Trump is the US's version. He asks for thoughts on the topic. Here are mine: I think people are exhausted from being poor in a world that promises well-being, they are angry at broken trust, they... Sign in to see full entry.

Civilization is the art of diverse peoples living together and thriving. It is the art of community. We have some civilized ideals, but we live and act mostly with a tribal mindset, which is based in Supremacy of Us over Them. Community is no longer a priority for most people in American society....

too many!

Human beings are making ourselves an endangered species as we overpopulate our environment, consume everything in sight, like a deer herd over-grazing a land of every green thing*. We kill off every competitor, which is any other living thing that might eat something we could eat, or occupy space we... Sign in to see full entry.

A Progressive Luddite

Here in the US, there is a great battle joined that seems to go on forever: Conservatives vs Progressives/Liberals. And in Great Britain, too, as the country contends over whether to remain in the European Union, or not. I've been hearing a lot about this from my son-in-law and one of his relatives...

Telling truth from lies

Bear in mind that political campaigns have never been clean or honest, all the tricks justified by "We can't make the changes, do the work, defend the right, etc, if we don't get into office." So candidates hand themselves over to professional campaigners who make every effort they can get away with... Sign in to see full entry.

No one wins

So, the registered Democrats who weren't somehow accidentally wiped off the rolls, get to choose who the Democratic candidate should be. And the registered Republicans get to express their opinion on who the Republican candidate should be. So, it's a Party thing... So, a huge number of people don't... Sign in to see full entry.

Dreaming again

I woke this morning from a social/political dream about donating blood. Years ago when I was a college student in Cleveland, I answered a call for blood donation. The call was on behalf of a particular man who was having heart surgery. They valued my pint of blood at $30, I think. I told them to... Sign in to see full entry.

Projection and Celebrity

Celebrity is a bright candle, an incandescent lamp, a cloud-raking search-light! It draws our attention in a most superficial way to someone who somehow, somewhy, stepped into the light and stayed long enough for us to notice. We notice the presence and some outstanding characteristics, just enough... Sign in to see full entry.
