Things to Be Encouraged About

There are things to be encouraged about right now: Black Lives Matter, the campaign for a $15 minimum wage, Moral Mondays in North Carolina. Rev. Barber correctly describes the new NC laws as a "race-based, class-based, homophobic and transphobic attack on wage earners, civil rights, and the LGBTQ community...” And he says the NAACP will not put up with it.

There is movement on global warming, though not enough. The Sanders and Trump campaigns show that many Americans are really tired of politics as usual. Whether the populace will move left or right is still in question. But the center is not holding.

I still often feel discouraged. Living in end stage capitalism is wearing.
