From the Editor to the Serious Writer

So much of our communication in these times is written rather than spoken aloud. Timing and intonation happen vocally pretty much automatically. Not so much, in the written conversation. But they could. Mis-use or non-use of punctuation is, for anyone who knows the tools of written communication,... Sign in to see full entry.

Finally recognized...

Some of us here have a particular interest in this information, and that it is slated to be included in the 2017 edition of the Psychiatric Diagnostic Manual. http://traumadissociation.com/complexptsd Maybe it applies to you. Maybe, to someone you love or work with, because it cripples relationships... Sign in to see full entry.

Walter Cronkite, I miss you...

What Corporate Media does instead of journalism: Takes a story that grabs attention at the outset and milks it until no one except crazy people ever want to see it or anything about it for years to come, maybe ever. Disasters, like tornadoes, earthquakes, hurricanes, mudslides that kill a lot of... Sign in to see full entry.

Why do people vote against their own best interests?

After observing from afar the UK referendum to sever itself from the European Union, more intently than ever I am wondering why people vote against their own interests. Is it that they don't understand what their interests actually are? Or that they don't see their interests in relation to the Big... Sign in to see full entry.

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.

Priorities

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.
