An interview with David Cobb.
Another great source of information and analysis for Greens is Garlic and Grass. It's more an online magazine than a blog, which is to say it doesn't get updated very often, but when it does, it's a thing of beauty. The writers are non-partisan (it's not a Green site, per se), but very progressive, and their analysis goes deeper than most other websites you'll find.
Ken Sain has some thoughts on Green blogging, so of course I have to link back to it to close the loop. He has a nice comment about (and link to) this blog, and a good note about the need for more Green women bloggers. As an aside, this blog is set up so that any Green - man or woman - can get an account and post here. This isn't just my space, as much as it might look that way. Several other people have posted here, though their posts are buried fairly deep by now.
My only other thought on this (for the moment) is to thank Ken for being a good example of both insightful and consistent posting. Other Greens, including me, would do well to take time to post at least once a day. This is actually my fourth attempt in six years to maintain (what we now call) a blog, and it only works because I semi-consistently post to it. If you like what I write - or if you don't - leave comments, or better yet, get an account here and blog for yourself.
So you're a Green. Are you a leftist? Well... what does that mean?
Many Greens identify with the ideals of the left, and are bitterly opposed to the right, but are reluctant to cast their lot with the likes of Josef Stalin, Pol Pot, and Erich Honecker.
How to resolve this paradox?
Lawrence Lessig is probably unknown to most Greens. This is a shame, because he is on the cutting edge of creating a just, equitable, transparent and free culture for us all. His latest article is in Technology Review, but has little to do with technology.
Instead, it's about dancing, protesting, philosophy, money, books, movies, and democracy. What's the common thread between them all?
Ken Sain, the Greens' most prolific blogger, has been having a most interesting conversation with MD Green Brad Carlton. Like Ken, I don't take everything he says at face value, but neither can I dismiss it out of hand.
...here's some more on last year's convention. Specifically, my photos and a brief recounting of the events. If someone would let the webmaster(s) of the national site to point the link there towards here, I'd appreciate it.
A friend recently passed along a bit of insight he'd heard from another friend...
The three values of the French revolution were Liberté, égalité, fraternité (freedom, equality, brotherhood - or, as I like to translate it, solidarity). Well, the first wave of revolutions (France, the US, much of Latin America) was about freedom, at least for the bourgeoisie. The next wave of revolutions (Russia, selected parts of Latin America and Africa) was about equality, which is to say, freedom for the non-bourgeoisie - at least in theory.
