Arguing for our lives

The book is called Arguing for Our Lives, and aforementioned, I picked it up at City Lights Bookstore.

The “hyper-mediated world,” to coin one expression, and this is merely a long meditation on critical thinking, with obvious liberal, free-thinking overtones.

Following his line of reasoning, and my own, oft-repeated scolding, “If you don’t vote, you can’t complain?” The author points out that this is a false statement, again, relying on my own observations, mostly in Austin, but in downtown San Antonio, as well, even a protest motion that doesn’t involve a voting citizen, still, that act makes a statement, and on some level, affects the process.

Intended or unintended actions.

Dialogue causes action.

In Sister’s village, Peoples Republic of Northern California, I saw an image I loved, a bumper sticker, it read, “gun-toting liberal for Obama.”

“We are most anxious when we cannot find a way to make sense of what’s happening, and when we feel as if there is nothing we can do to change our circumstances.”

My own take on horoscopes, that is an attempt, whether it’s the weekly scope or a reading, to make sense of it all. Causes, actions, consequences, and best directions. Quite nice to see it articulated in a different forum, like that book, Arguing for Our Lives.
