    • Nice writing, Danny. Three quotes pop out for me:

      "Many of the same people fighting against police racial profiling of black people don’t see the hypocrisy associated with their religious profiling of black people." - there are a number of places where movement politics and general...

    • Thanks for this post Danny. I get the same type of questioning of the value in the church from white Progressives. I think an example like the Reverend William Barber shows the ongoing value of the church in social movements.

    • I can't speak on the rift in the black community over the Christian religion but I have to say that generally the Christian evangelical movement has earned the contempt of liberals and secular humanists. Before the Civil War the Christian community was divided between those who used the bible...

    • AA, I agree that anger is a powerful, galvanizing force, but angry is not the same as anti. The early progressives were angry at corrupt politicians and industrialists, and the anger fueled the movement, yet they channeled it into constructive, pro-gressive policies....

    • People always misunderstand these ancient tales. The real story is that stupid incompetent six year old. If he's already such a loser that he can't see the invisible clothes at six how will he ever make it as an adult? Trump has been seeing invisible clothes all his life and look, he got elected...

    • C'mon Dick. Have some pity for the guy. For years on the Apprentice, he had great script writers, the best, everyone says so. He'd come in once a week, read out stuff that sounded smart and authoritative and he could make people cry or be effusively thankful just by pointing at them. He was so...

    • Trump wants deregulation and huge taxcuts for the rich.

      Wall Streeters like financial disruption.  They make money whether markets go up or down, they like deregulation and tax cuts for themselves, the rich.

    • P.S. Flip side: the Tea Party was not created from support for William F. Buckley's positive conservative vision of the world. It was created by riling people up about things their supposed enemy was doing. Being passionate about positive change is rare and limited to special people, most people...

    • Actually fits what I was saying, I'm just having a hard time saying it. Deep pockets of some kind are required to back small passionate movements about positive actions or changes, precisely because these are hardly ever "popular" Changes only become popular (as in: large numbers of people would...

    • TRUMP HAS CREATED A GOVERNMENT no longer controlled by nameless plutocrats operating from Wall Street.

      They run the government from the White House. While the Count of Mar-a-Lago plays at golf.

      That is populism. GOP style.

    • Cavaet: only related to the general topic of "coal".

      This post reminded me that last night in some news program on while working, for Earth Day I saw a segment of someone interviewing some Chinese gummint functionary explaining how China's energy needs were so yuge that they couldn't...

    • Struck me as iconographically significant! This is the great empire land of the Industrial Revolution belching coal fire's black smoke to prove that man could blot out the sky, where all the architecture of its greatest city was once covered with a thick black patina. Where shivering little poor...

    • To nitpick, Soros' initial foray was the Open Society Foundation to ensure a smoother transition from communism post-wall. It had none of the anti- trappings of these other movements - it was simply filling the vacuum of our government's "peace dividend"
