Gary Johnson to Appear on 60 Minutes

Gary Johnson will be on 60 Minutes tonight. I can’t believe how great this cycle has been. It’s a vindication for all the years of people telling libertarians to give up on growing a third party and change it from the inside. Not once have I been asked in 2016, “Who are you guys running?” […]

30 Books To Heal Codependency and Grow Emotionally

Codependency had always been an amorphous word to me. It was something that plagued weak and needy people. Then I went through a divorce, not of my choosing. I realized I had been codependent through every relationship I’d had. Through the past year, I’ve been through therapy, talked to friends, and have read. A lot. […]

“There’s no one in the world if anything is meaningful and truthful that you’re not going to offend someone. You’ve got to be able to say what it is, say how it is and take the consequence.” – Tommy Smothers

The Rev. Ralph Abernathy was the pastor of the First Baptist Church in Montgomery, AL in the early 1950’s. As the leader of the largest black church in the city, it put him squarely in the middle of the civil rights movement’s birth. He would befriend another pastor in town: Martin Luther King Jr. The two would become best friends and the leaders of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC). He succeeded King as the head of the SCLC after King’s 1968 assassination. Abernathy passed away in 1990 of a blood clot. I found the inscription on his tombstone fitting: “I TRIED.”

“Now the crucial paradox which confronts us here is that the whole process of education occurs within a social framework and is designed to perpetuate the aims of society. Thus, for example, the boys and girls who were born during the era of the Third Reich, when educated to the purposes of the Third Reich, became barbarians. The paradox of education is precisely this – that as one begins to become conscious one begins to examine the society in which he is being educated. The purpose of education, finally, is to create in a person the ability to look at the world for himself, to make his own decisions, to say to himself this is black or this is white, to decide for himself whether there is a God in heaven or not. To ask questions of the universe, and then learn to live with those questions, is the way he achieves his own identity. But no society is really anxious to have that kind of person around. What societies really, ideally, want is a citizenry which will simply obey the rules of society. If a society succeeds in this, that society is about to perish. The obligation of anyone who thinks of himself as responsible is to examine society and try to change it and to fight it – at no matter what risk. This is the only hope society has. This is the only way societies change.” – James Baldwin
