The tombstone captioned above signifies that American Democracy has already died and buried but I believe we have a living chance to save it from real death. The late great Marvin Gaye wrote a song which became the anthem of generations of Americans in the 1970’s and one of the most influential recordings in the […]

The Problem Is Not Trump’s Alone!

Yes! The president has hurled insulting and demeaning words to immigrants, women, and people of color, political opponents and other people. Yes! The president should take responsibility for how his words may have caused some people to engage in hate-driven acts of violence of which El Paso and Dayton are the most recent and horrific […]

In The End America Loses If We Don’t Do What is Morally Right To Strengthen and Save Our Democracy.

  The racial animus and personal attacks by President Donald J. Trump “parlayed” against various members of the Democratic Party along with the deafening silence and refusal of some Republican cohorts and base supporters to publicly denounce such strident incrimination, painfully demonstrate how low we have sunk as a nation into the politics of resentment […]

“America You Go Girls!”

The pendulums of justice and freedom are swinging back to their rightful places for all the people of America. The 2018 midterm elections is a referendum on what most Americans want their country to be; not a nation of haters bent on bullying their way to power by frightening and pummeling the people into submission […]

The Problem of Absolute Power

Absolute power cannot be wielded absolutely forever. The exercise of power in institutions and organizations in any social order can spawn the catabolic elements of its own demise, for within the matrix of power’s workings are the tendencies of human beings to exceed the limits of power  particularly in their coercive attempts to maintain and […]

” The Problem of Procedural Injustice.”

The crises now facing American Liberal Democracy may have as much to do with the denial of procedural justice by politicians as it does the aversion of distributive justice for everyday Americans through failed political processes, corrupt political leaders and a broken political system.
