My name is George Ledyard. I believe, like a number if other people, that we, as a society, are in the middle of a set of culture wars. I feel strongly that we need to actively fight for progressive values that address our vast income inequality, our uneven application of social justice, our nation’s addiction to military interventionism, our unwillingness to seriously address poverty, and so on.
Make no mistake, this is a fight. It is a fight for the hearts and minds of the American public who are the victims of a concerted propaganda effort to distract and misdirect the people’s attention away from the real issues and to convince them to support political agendas that clearly go against their true self interest.
This blog will be an attempt to remove the smoke screen that hides the issues and hopefully will, at the same time, provide an example of what civil discourse could and should be. Disagreements may be strong but let’s strive to have our political conversations stay respectful and civil.
If you like what we are doing here, please know that we would be extremely grateful for any support you might provide. We have three levels of on-going support which we have purposely kept extremely affordable. Thanks for helping us keep this effort going.
