That Liberal Rag
We believe in the American ideal.
I’m Gregory Lynn
There’s a story I tell.
I’m in first grade at a pretentious private school west of Boston, and the teacher had the class vote on the book she was going to read next. The first option was The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, which I thought sounded just ridiculously bad. A lot of hands went up. When the second title was read, I confidently shot my hand up and looked around to find…no other hands up. None. Zero. Zippo. I’ve been holding minority opinions ever since.
But here’s the thing, I’m tired of them being minority opinions.
I’m tired of living in a society where some people are treated better than others by every legal authority we have. I’m tired of living in a society where employers think they own their employees. I’m tired of living in a society where the people are expected to serve the economy rather than the other way around. I’m tired of living in a world where most of us are afraid of tomorrow.
I want to live in a better world.
How about you?
