Mighty Warriors of Weakness

By Thom Hunter, published on Mar 13, 2012

So . . . are you free to be ye yet?

Despite all the awe-inspiring technological advances in life, the countless avenues for gathering information, unlimited research on everything imaginable and the openness of modern life that allows pretty much anyone to share deep insight on absolutely anything that briefly piques their interest due to unlimited access to avenues of expression . . . we're not much closer to resolving the issues that lead us into rebellion and separation and solitude, it seems, or to the truth on the issues that blind us, bind us or define us.

We bow our heads... (more)

Who Told You You Were Naked?

By Thom Hunter, published on Oct 31, 2011

One of the most discouraging aspects of battling a deeply-internalized sexual issue is that, even after you face it, fight it, and deprive it, something in that deep-internal goes right back to work to revive it. You choke it, pound it, bury it, surrender it and then, before you know it, you're back under it. You toss it out the window on your journey to freedom and about the time you peek in the rear-view mirror, it's splatting on the windshield.

I've heard of . . . and would like to shake the hand of -- some people who faced-down the addictive nature of sexual brokenness and, in that... (more)

In the Occupy Movement, let's let the next generation lead!

By People Power Granny, published on Oct 25, 2011

...going to take it any longer.My advice to the other old timers like myself. Let the leaders of this movement be our young people. We have fought many battles, some of which we won and some which we lost. And we can also fight this battle, but this is the time for our young people to take leadership.Let's pass our flame of passion onto them. Let's follow, but be open to share our wisdom, advice and experience when asked.This is a new dawn of activism once more in America, and the leaders do not have silver crowns like mine, but instead black, blond, red and even dreadlocks crowns,... (more)

Say No To Hitler Style Relationships

By Barkha Dhar, published on Aug 15, 2011

If anybody had to get a hindsight of who Hitler was as a leader and as a person, then learning about him through his sayings would be a flashback of terror. Most of his quotes on waging a war, leadership and governance, revolutions, and struggle are passionate, but also pugnacious. Hitler seemed to be a man defined by extremism and belligerence, which may have been a boon to the Nazi rule. As a leader, Hitler would be always remembered as a great warrior and an authoritarian for whom victory was a battle of conquest. However, most of us may know little about him as a person. Walter S. Zapotoczny’s... (more)

He's the One! A Candidate With Courage Shows the Way

By Caballero_69, published on Mar 18, 2011

...than 0.25% of America at the time. This was his first term in Congress. He had no seniority; he did not sit on the most powerful committees.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Democracy for America named him the Number One Hero in the U S House of Representatives. DFA began in 2001 through the leadership of Governor Howard Dean. It has over a million members and seeks to organize support for progressive candidates all over the country.

He routinely refuses to do as he is told. He insists on being candid and even blunt. He will not back down. Progressives cheered his legislative style... (more)

A Call To Action, By Lee Iacocca

By Lumiere, published on Oct 1, 2009

... of the ' America ' my parents and yours traveled across the ocean for. I've had enough. How about you? I'll go a step further. You can't call yourself a patriot if you're not outraged. This is a fight I'm ready and willing to have. The Biggest 'C' is Crisis! (Iacocca elaborates on nine C's of leadership, with crisis being the first.)Leaders are made, not born. Leadership is forged in times of crisis. It's easy to sit there with your feet up on the desk and talk theory. Or send someone else's kids off to war when you've never seen a battlefield yourself. It's another thing to lead when your... (more)
