Stay alive, stay connected

Wed, 03 Jan 2018 13:43:24 +0000

Check out the late Grace Lee Boggs on how to foster solidarity and make it through this horrible time with our souls and hopefully our social fabric intact. Her words are only becoming more and more important. “I’ve come to believe that you cannot change any society unless you take responsibility for it, unless you ...



Stop the FCC and save Net Neutrality!

Tue, 12 Dec 2017 15:16:59 +0000

The FCC is about to vote to end net neutrality—breaking the fundamental principle of the open Internet. I'm supporting an effort to create an avalanche of calls to Congress to stop it.

Net neutrality affects everyone who uses the Internet. This is for all of us.



Less faith, more action

Mon, 27 Nov 2017 03:26:52 +0000

I will say it again: please stop thinking everything will work out in the end. The only way that happens is if massive numbers of Americans rise up and do not allow business as usual to continue. It’s on US. The institutions that got us to this moment are not going to suddenly fix it. ...



Can you be Buddhist and antifa at the same time?

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 19:39:45 +0000

Haven’t processed all of this yet, but this is a great exploration of antifa from a Buddhist perspective. Please read if like me you are troubled by both violence and nazis. Buddhists and the Bloc: An Open Thread On Antifa On perceptions: I also want to think about this on a “Buddhist” level. What do ...



The price of collaboration

Sun, 10 Sep 2017 01:24:35 +0000

From visiting the wonderful Dutch Resistance Museum many years ago, I knew about the “Judenrat,” councils of Jewish leaders that Nazis used to facilitate the implementation of their own annihilation. Although I’m Jewish and believe it’s important to remember the Holocaust, I never really spent that much time learning the political history. I foolishly thought that “never ...



Silent Sam must go

Wed, 23 Aug 2017 23:55:24 +0000

I graduated from the University of North Carolina in 1993. Even then we questioned why any soldier, not to mention one abstracted from a war that divided the country in an effort to preserve the horrible institution of slavery, should be in such a position of honor for all to see. The purpose of Confederate ...



Student activism is UNC

Wed, 23 Aug 2017 22:34:55 +0000

I’ve been enjoying this excellent UNC History site with an interactive timeline of the successful student activism that led to the creation of the Sonja Haynes Stone Center for Black Culture and History that we know and love today. Don’t let Carol Folt or anyone else tell you activism is anathema to The University of ...
