Seth's best quote of this appearance about gay rights really should be reflected upon by biggots of all stripes:

"History has proven again and again that anyone who is on the wrong side of freedom and the expansion of individual rights loses!"

To quote Elizabeth Warren who heads the TARP Commission to oversee the spending of $700+ billion as part of the first economic stimulus package said on Bill Maher this week:

"It is not about religion or even morality. Quite simply, this is the United States of America, and there are rules about how we conduct ourselves- even in a game of Candyland!"

For something that so many "serious" people have been making fun of for so long, I find it amazing that commentary about the new Star Trek film is filling not only blogs but news and opinion columns all the way up the ladder to the NYTimes. Their editorial and the likes of Maureen Dowd and other prime bloviators are contributing the the feeding frenzy over J.J. Abrams' reinterpretation. Should anyone be surprised that a film with characters who personify the term "iconic" as regards American media/popular culture and emphasizes the power of personal struggle, the clash of reason and passion on a socratic level of seriousness and the fact that if we transcend our baggage as individuals and a civilization we can find hope and optimism for the future has a titanic appeal? This is a future that runs shiningly in contrast to the banal, violent and dark remainder of contemporay science fiction and fantasy films of the last decade, and one that finds a sturdy grounding in reality when seen agianst the backdrop of America's current tranformation under Barack Obama from self-absorbed, short-sighted and childish excess to a healthier, more introspective and intelligent consciousness. It should be no surprise living the fake future of the last eight years that we have to look back and past that to find Where The Future Begins!

Carl Jung speaks-

"Follow that will and that way which experience confirms to be your own!"

"Resistance to the organized mass can be effected only by the person who is as well organized in their individuality as the mass itself."

"Where love reigns, there is no will to power; and where power predominates, there love is lacking. The one is the shadow of the other."

"Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams, and who looks inside awakes."

"The healthy person does not torture others- generally it is the tortured that turn into torturers."

"One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feelings. The curriculum is so much raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child."
