One of the things that always inspires me as I try to put together my thoughts in this blog is finding others who are saying and thinking very similar things. It’s obviously somewhat of a justification even if, most of the time, they say it much better than I, but regardless, it makes you realize there may be some kind of truth out there guiding us all, if we can just see it. Recently I found such a person, Chris Hedges, “a Pulitzer-prize winning journalist, New York Times best selling author, professor at Princeton University, activist and ordained Presbyterian minister”.
Without adding a lot of my own thoughts here, I will simply recommend that you read his article below, which “is a transcript of a talk … (he) … gave at the Inaugurate the Resistance rally in Washington, D.C., on Saturday (02-18-2017).” Here many of my thoughts find nurture with a level of authority and respect, where I may have seemed to be just rambling about.
Hard as it may be to deal with, we should all take particular note of his final thought in this speech and then continually ask ourselves “where does this fit in our own lives?”
“I do not fight fascists because I will win. I fight fascists because they are fascists.”
