If you are going to appoint yourself as a CE, take extra care to review your own copy.

"But, since it is coming from an organized (but not a "recognized") religion of secular enviro-leftist-wealth redistribution with a ploitical [sic] takes up precious air time."

Your entire post is an excellent illustration of two conditions: the Dunning-Kruger effect and anosognosia. Then again, so are all your posts on WNYC.

Concerning this topic, the guest talks about alienating those who are not college educated and I have to agree with her argument. Education is good and unlike material possessions, it's something that no one can take from you. But when educational differences becomes the new accepted biggotry, then it would appear that those who've finished college are the least enlightened.

"Gaseous nonsense"? Sounds like this better describes Martin Chuzzlewit's contribution.

I very much appreciate the speaker. We need techniques for working together and making progress on the issues that matters to us. Thanks for the inspiration!

Martin: Why do you listen to this station? It does nothing but make you angry.

Or, do you enjoy just being angry? Ah! I think so.

What gaseous nonsense.

What exactly does it mean to "work for a just and sustainable future"? (Gee, am I allowed to question this feel-good drivel?)

Their website describes their core strategy as thus: "Acknowledging spirit is a conscious recognition of our wholeness" and that the "work of collective visioning has an intrinsic connection to action for changeoa (sic) continuum..."

If this blather were coming from an organized ("recognized") religion it would never be aired on WNYC. But, since it is coming from an organized (but not a "recognized") religion of secular enviro-leftist-wealth redistribution with a ploitical takes up precious air time.

And, by the way, who the heck cares where the founder was born.......the group is headquartered in, of course, Massachusetts!! (Well, true, it could have been Berkeley.)
