The Magic of Conflict and the Beauty of Compromise.

Some years ago, Thomas Crum, an aikido expert, reframed the very idea of 'conflict' from a negative to a positive, pointing out the beauty inherent in the conflict of ocean and land, for instance, on a rugged, sea-pounded coastline. His work suggests that acknowledgement of conflict is the key to... Sign in to see full entry.

Election Fraud and Voter Suppression

The biggest threat to the election of relatively sane, progressive (as opposed to obstructive) government in November is voter suppression. We have seen how it works, how well it works, throughout the primaries/caucuses, when the Parties abandon the American people in favor of their own Party... Sign in to see full entry.

"Report originated at a fake news site..."

Snopes and other fact-checkers use this phrase a lot. Charles Redding brought up the question, how much do these fake news sites actually influence beliefs and generate real reactions to unrealities? I'm not referring to the ones like THE DAILY SHOW which actually tends to deliver news while... Sign in to see full entry.

Inspired by Pat's post today about the crazy old broads...

For us old broads and geezers: We remember a time when the Gun War was not the norm, when evenings were lit by sunsets to dazzle eyes and hearts, not by the tiny flickers of vigil/protest candles clustering in the streets, when tears blur the lights and hearts are broken. We are still shocked by... Sign in to see full entry.

After a long, exhausting day, Charlie had the energy last night and the inspiration to write this, and I am inspired to share it here with you: To protect the greatness we take for granted, and forgetting how we achieved it, we undermine and dismantle the very things that made us great. We come to... Sign in to see full entry.

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.
