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,

On Slavery

Slavery still exists in the world and in the United States. This is evil. God does not approve of this activity.

Sex trafficking is going on right now in the USA and world. Groups like MS-13 and others are involved in this. We should keep our eyes open for this kind of activity and report our suspicions to police or social services. We should also be aware of the sources of labor involved in producing goods that are shipped to the United States.

Labor trafficking
Sex trafficking
Prison as slavery
Child Labor Slavery

Seafood and Slavery on NPR

These are plainly wrong and evil. Can we fix this? Of course we can.
