On Progressivism

I was just reading an essay by Richard Sahn: Life Lessons from Dorothy Day.

I recall reading about Dorothy Day at the University of Massachusetts and her newspaper and Catholic Worker

I like Richard’s comment on our “our acceptance of a filthy, rotten, system that enshrines greed and injustice and inequity, a system tailored for exploitative competition, brutal punishment, and forever war”

As a nation under God, I’m of the opinion that while we do need to support ourselves; we shouldn’t do that at the expense of our souls.  Lying to get ahead may seem fine but, it is a sin.  I’ve seen that and more in my local humans. I also know humans that are good, God loving people. I’ve also met good  people who are having a hard time due to ill health or other problems. Some work is being done to alleviate this suffering, but not enough.

I’ve become aware of Slavery which still exists and is both in our supply chain and in our own nation.

Many of my fellow American citizens remind me of an animal licking it’s genitals. Not good, but very human. I hope we can rise above that.

Please stop war. Use diplomacy. Stop jailing people for honest mistakes. We are all human beings. Please remember the Golden Rule – treat other people the way you would like to be treated.

God does love us all.

God Bless America,

Cocooning ourselves

As an American Dad, I can feel the  social cocoon around me. TV, people, the  home, the auto.

It’s somewhat pleasant, but I do fear for those of us on the outskirts.

I’ve written about Our American Body which is becoming more flabby.  I enjoy walking and enjoying nature and also

(by Petula Clark)

I wish Americans  would open their eyes and educate themselves and be more vigilant. Our politicians are in bed with major corporations which are working hard to enslave you with debt. We are wasting resources on War when it would be much more efficient to put resources on diplomacy and education.

People get raped and murdered and disappeared daily due to ‘public servants’ not doing their jobs but instead being predators on we the people.  People are turned into slaves by an industry called Human Trafficking.

I hope we can fix this quickly.

They work for us, don’t they ?
