Why I’m not (just) a Liberal.
I may be Liberal, but as Swami Beyondananda says (just discovered him via Tantrum Yoga) we need everyone on board, by definition, if we’re going to create a more enlightened, happy, safe, healthy society.
Just this morning I was at Farmers’ Market, here in “green,” “liberal” Boulder, and a childhood acquaintance told me how whenever she visited relatives back in the “real world,” they teased her for recycling. “You hippie,” they chide her. It’s exasperating. What’s “hippie” about caring for our home, cleaning our macro room, making our planetary bed? You know Teddy Roosevelt, a star Republican, started the National Parks? Nixon, not exactly poster child of “green,” created the Clean Air Act?
“Green” shouldn’t be, and isn’t, a “liberal” cause. Al Gore doesn’t own the rights to fighting climate change, any more than Rush owns the rights to being a big fat idiot.
Okay, I am a liberal. And I had to get that one last dig in.
