First of all let me express understanding that the last four years must have been difficult for you, being with someone you have loved, cared about, shared your life with and made a commitment to and yet not able to introduce this person to your family for reasons of discrimination and possibly fear of rejection of both you and your partner. I can only imagine the secret keeping and the feelings that go along with that have been difficult for you and your partner.
Question for Dr. Wilson: I know the tea bag Party and other conservitives are on to something when using the term socialism. I also know socialism is not the right term because it does not fit what is happening. What are they pointing us toward and what is it they are really against? Please help me understand?
Dr. Wilson's Reply: What I see the Tea Party attacking is the Common Good. What is the common good? John Rawls, defined the common good as “certain general conditions that are...equally to everyone's advantage.”
The Space Coast Progressive Fest
This gathering is a once a year celebration of a like-minded community. A demonstration that there are people and groups of people that think progressively in the Space Coast area. A celebration declaring we exist, that we represent a history of progressive thought and action, and that we are dedicated to continuing that philosophy of life. But what is it we have pledged our life energy to continuing through time?
An intercepted communication between Helen Voltz and conservative friends who support Oscar Hotusing for Circuit Court Judge (actually, a posting on her Facebook page) revealed this startling assessment of SCPA:
"The Space Coast Progressive Alliance is the most liberal group of people you could ever imagine."
Hooray for SCPA! Thank you, Helen!
