I’m what is considered a ‘radical leftist’ in American discourse. I am called that, so far as I can see, because I dare suggest that any system or idea has both aspects worthy of merit and of critique. While that sounds reasonable, once you expand this logic to include socialism and the dreaded communism, many stop listening.




Slow news is good news. In a media world of panic, hysteria, and negativity, we need to make sense of the headlines and the systems which define us.
