If you have read my blog for any length of time, you know that my biggest pet peeve is bigotry in any form.

My writer-blogger-friend Gronda has the courage to put the monkey on the proper back, to place the blame for the increase in racially-based hate crimes right where it belongs.

Lessons for the anti-war movement

by Andrew Murray

Labour’s campaign was a triumph for the politics of mobilisation, of which Stop the War has been a 21st century pioneer

‘We can now say that Stop the War policies are much more embedded in the mainstream of Labour Party thinking and indeed public opinion more widely.’ 2,568 more words

Perhaps Someday We Will Learn How to Live

Every morning I awaken to a country bristling with hate, intolerance, and violence. 

Trump bullied his way to the presidency, exploiting public anxieties, e. g., steel belt resentment of jobs sent abroad, latent fears of a changing demographic replacing White homogeneity, evangelical rancor against abortion, and Islamaphobia, which sees every Muslim as a potential terrorist. 576 more words
