Mr. Totten has a great essay posted on his blog.
What has happened to activism in America? Where do liberals go when their party no longer represents them? What is it like for a self- described progressive to find himself labeled the antithesis of what he believes? And that the branding iron is in the hands of those he once marched with?
Make sure to catch his comments section; discourse was remarkably thoughtful and civil, at least as of the time I am posting this.
