Happy New Year!

Posted 02 January 2002 - 02:10 PM

hey everyone, I just wanted to say Happy New Year. Christmas break was exceptionally great... all I did was watch tv the entire time. Oh and I went and saw LOTR which was good (but I'm not fanatical over it).

Tough to be back at work today.... ugh.... bored....

Any New Year's resolutions for you all?

Mine is to learn more about politics and be more active in that area....

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

well the idea is that you live in a democratic nation so if politics and/or the government aren't what you think they should be, it's your responsibility to try to get it changed... and you can't do that by ignoring it. I don't like politics either, but nothing changes unless I make the effort as a citizen... and in days like these where our governments are steadily going down the tubes, it's even more important. :)

The problem with North Americans is that we're too comfortable and lazy, as you say. Things will be different if/when it's OUR butts out in the cold. No empire can last forever, and we're stupid to think that we can just slide through life and everything will be wonderful... we're not invincible, in spite of what George Bush seems to think, and every power falls eventually.

Even if you're not of voting age, you can do a service by educating yourself about current events (REAL current events, not the crap they serve on cnn) so that when you are able to vote and make a difference, you can do so intelligently and informedly. :)

Sorry for the rant; it's big on my mind right now.

yea i see but i when i see the real current events and then i see the 'current event' it makes wish for a time where the leader relied on loyal support and leaders were judged on the principles of honor, courage and wisdom. basically the world presented on LOTR. a fantasy world

Well put, huzzah and kudos for wanting to get more active in gov't and politics. Knowledge of 'the system' (god what a cliche) is the greatest assest in fighting against the things you disagree with and for the things you want. If you're new to the whole political thing firstly get informed about everything before picking sides or getting settled into an opinion. secondly, dont get settled into an opinion :)

though i say not to decide were you stand right off the bat here are some leftist leaning political sites that are great sources of info (canadian or U.S):
[list]
[*]Mother Jones
[*]Disinfo
[*]Democracy Now
[*]Soft Skull 'radically intelligent books' (hopefully my soon to be publisher)
[*]IndyMedia
[*]Soy Bomb Nation

Hope that helps :biggrin:. The only politics to avoid is board politics in my opinion so have fun and good luck!

Thanks, I'll check those out. But don't assume that I fit with the "leftist" views. ;)
