“The truth is that we no longer have a real Congress that determines together what is good for the entire country. We have power politics, the abandonment of consensus, in a time of serious national division. The party with the most seats runs the country for its own satisfaction. How long that can possibly last is anybody’s guess.”

~ Benedictine Sister Joan Chittister / Spiritual writer



Notable Quote

If we are to have peace on earth, our loyalties must become ecumenical rather than sectional. Our loyalties must transcend our race, our tribe, our class, and our nation; and this means we must develop a world perspective.

~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

Notable Quotes


The reason why Trump was able to attain power is not because he had better ideas, made better arguments, had greater organizational capacity, or even spent more money. The reason he was able to win was because those charged with opposing him offered no hope, but the status quo, in a country where inequality between rich and poor and black and white is growing.”

~ Gary Younge in The Nation
