As I continue to step a bit further from politics I find some things are still worth my attention, things I feel could make a difference sooner than later and involve more than politicians:
Gary Rhine features the Progressive Democrats of America on this entire entry
at Rhino's Blog
. He includes a link to William Rivers Pitt interview with Kevin Spiedel for an in depth history of how PDA came together, and insights into the game plan.
I'm glad to see Gary aboard and pushing too. As I see it, this is our best shot at organizing anything left of center politically. I personally cannot get into supporting the DNC right now but the PDA has my attention, support and membership. I hope you'll consider the same.
"The modern individual who dares to heed the call and seek the mansion of that presence with whom it is our whole destiny to be at-one-ed, cannot, indeed must not, wait for his community to cast off it's sense of pride, fear, rationalized avarice, and sanctioned misunderstanding.
"Live", Nietzsche says, "as though the day were here".
It is not society that is to guide and save the creative hero, but precisely the reverse. And so, every one of us shares the supreme ordeal - carries the cross of the redeemer - not in the bright moments of his tribes great victories, but in the silences of his personal despair."
