Some personally written posts are big blog post style, so a "Read More" link is used to shorten posts for browser feeds.

I write a lot about social/political/world issues and you may or may not agree with my opinions. I am not and do not claim to be an expert on any of the topics, and am only presenting my thoughts formed from knowledge gained through research or school.

  • A Page I made some time ago to collect all Posts related to Society/World Issues, but I got too lazy with tagging so it's not updated: Thoughts on Society

    So I find that I go through a lot of phases on my journey to enlightenment being a knowledgeable citizen of the world. And the one word that in recent months has defined my knowledge of injustice in the world, is “Privilege”, and the invisibility of it. Privilege, and taking it for granted, is so, so very important to understanding all that is wrong in this world. (I want to make clear that I still have a positive outlook on the world. But I will not put on rose-colored glasses and pretend that some naive notion like the free market is going to fix everything.) There are so many levels of Privilege and they define how each and every one of us acts. My most recent posted video was on the Wisconsin Union Protests. Do you know what’s the most critical Privilege at play there? I think it is First World/Developed Nation Privilege. We have the privilege of a First World, World Class nation where decades of labor unions and worker rights activists have installed so many worker protections into our system. They are so ingrained that they are invisible; they are an Invisible Privilege. And so we take them for granted. We forget how hard it was to fight and gain these protections, we forget that there is still work to be done.
