I’ve held back on some potentially fiery polemics recently as I have no desire to be known for invective. Recent events have led me to believe it would be a disservice to the things I believe in to continue to temper my words. I apologize if I offend anyone.
I don’t make a dime for these efforts. I do it because I care deeply about social and environmental justice and I want to make a positive contribution to the common good. I try to do this by asking my readers to join me in a bit of navel-gazing, by questioning their assumptions and motivations. In doing so, I hope they will end up aiming higher with both their thoughts and actions. Please hold on to that thought.
