Last Tuesday's Midterms ushered in the beginning of a new era - mainstream progressive politics. Right here in the good ol' USA. We haven't seen this kind of energy since the 1960s, which gave us the Equal Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act, the women's liberation movement and the EPA, for starters. Resistance to war and meme's like 'Free Love' filled the air.
Even as we are all here together, events punctuate our lives and culture.There is a deep discontent in our world and lives here in the United States. The world is degrading as are our lives, while signs of emergent sustainability and political engagement abound. Curious times.
The 2017 election brought a host of firsts, and a clear repudiation of Trumpland.
