I’m back!

storyimages_1324068524_chomskywebIt’s been about two years since I blogged or wrote on this site (or much of anywhere else).

In those two years, we fought in the streets and back country in solidarity with Standing Rock and many other pipeline fights.

White America thought it’d be a good idea to elect a horrible human being to the most powerful office on the planet. Now, we’ve been in a surreal return to Gilded Age politics and economics.  On steriods.

Anyways, I plan to be contributing to the discourse through this site (and others) in the coming months.

In the meantime, here’s a quote and article from Noam Chomsky on the libertarian urge to destroy freedom and the planet in one feel philosophical swoop.

“The (libertarian) assumption is that by some kind of magic, concentrated private power will lead to a more free and just society.”
