Thanks for coming by.


I offer you this info on "Cultural Creatives" (.pdf file) titled "A New Political Compass" as a thought provoking tool; nothing more. I don't totally agree with these folks line of reasoning but recognise that their writings will lead people to think about their place and way in the world. So take the test. Disclaimer: Something about the CC site puts me off a bit , social theory with a whiff of New Agey-ness, which I don't mean to denigrate a search for spiritual connectedness and meaning- more I'm refering to a self satisfied commodification of these pursuits, you know, the phenomena of "big money" enlightenment, illumination technique of the month sort of thing. It is just a feeling, hard to put a finger on it.
What is your sensing?

I'm guessing you'll agree that most folks care about their family, love and respect their elders and want a better world for their children. It's up to us to stand and be counted- more to the point, it is up to us to remind folks what America is about.


Why am I Progressive? The NeoCon love affair with Leo Strauss is one new great reason.


As A member of "Aortal/ The Anti Portal" I'm pledged to turn you on to new and independent websites, demonstrating just how multivarious and interesting the independent internet can be. I hope you are running across valuable resources here every day and are passing them on.

"We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the world - no longer a Government of free opinion, no longer a Government by conviction and vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of small groups of dominant men." -Woodrow Wilson

The CIA's man in Baghdad Ahmed Chalabi(check out the chart uggabugga crafted about this crook) crafted and his INC group have hired a high powered PR firm to help them with their credibility in swooping in to govern Iraq at US behest.
This link is from Corporate Watch, it deals with the Public relations and lobbying industry. It is dense with information. How is it we are innately sensible enough to not trust a used car salesman, we ask questions, look under the hood- but when government officials (elected and unelected) try to sell us "a bill of goods" thinking is bad, is un-patriotic, is subversive?

Take a moment to think about your mental environment. Are you being sold what is "hip" what is "in"? Does your self image need the help of the right "designer" clothing. Does your "you-ness" shine through without the wearable/driveable cultural "indicators" that act as packaging, that we purchase, signifying to the world the commodified image we wish to represent? Or do you see yourself through your actions, your "way in the world", your relationships to others?
