1. A day late. A dollar short.

    (Sorry for the delay, other emergencies got in the way of posting this in a more timely manner)

    Today we celebrate the life of a man who pushed us to take risks in the name of freedom and justice. Implicit in that is a critique of the psychological structures that allow us to treat people as less than human. This goes beyond race, including in its scope gender, sexuality, class and other elements of “difference” as well. Objectification in all it’s myriad forms facilitates oppression, and its not a stretch to see the same process at work in our exploitation of non-human animals as well. So today let’s remember to keep ourselves in check, everytime we slip (and we ALL slip) into old patterns of “different” = “less than.”
