How have we sunk so low as a nation, a question being asked by the Left, as we watch the circus antics of our leaders on the national & world stages. Rick Mercer, in a recent rant about Rob Ford, reminds us that there are voters in this country who would have a gerbil as leader if it would save them a buck. What has happened to our older political visions that included commitment to & investment in our future as a country and as a people?
For that kind of vision, we have to spend some bucks now, have to invest now in education & mental/health care & housing: food, clothing & shelter, & thinking. Education. Over the past fifteen years our youth have been led away from thinking toward gadgetry & entertainment.
Pedlar Press is a place where a whole lot of thinking’s going on. Spirit’s Time has never been any time other than NOW.
I’ve been reading with great delight—I think Juanita Wildrose is simply wonderful—but one has to say something more than wonderful. So I thought I’d say, A heap of treasure out of a living past.
