THOUGHT FOR THE TIMES

Any society which passes laws placing the dictates of corporate greed above the rights of ordinary citizens forfeits the ability to call itself a democracy.

Personal Comment

WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU ON?
 

In light of some of the comments expressed on this site, the signature file attached to my personal e-mails, etc., I have been impudently asked by more than one person recently: Whose side are you on, anyway?

A question to which I can only reply by quoting verbatim Professor Robert Jensen of the University of Texas at Austin:

I am on the side of peace, not war.

I am on the side of justice, not vengeance.

I am on the side of the people -- no matter where they live -- who will suffer the violence; not the leaders -- no matter where they live -- who will plan it.

And most important, I am on the side of hope, not despair.

We do not have the luxury of despair right now. There is too much at stake, for too many people.
