Hey Ted, part of me feels the same way. We have been posting articles from Dahr Jamail for years. He's been a stand-out in his courage, his outspoken-ness about the severity of ACD. It's back to the same issues from the top of this discussion - do we talk about it, or do we put it aside as some kind of psychological deformation to 'emphasize' the empiricism of the science and its implications / over the triumphalism and abiding spirit of potential change. Is it a matter of "affect-phobia" (MSKlein) to want to avoid any hint of ACD? I don't know the right measure/balance....but that is why we have this forum... It would be REALLY GREAT if more people emphasized the local activity that is so empowering to each of us.
