Now that right-wing extremists seem to consider both empathy and compassion to be somehow vile human traits unrelated to government and social services, it appears that a return to sanity is needed. We Compassionate Progressives are honestly and without guile willing to do our best to improve ourselves, our families, friends, neighbors and society.
This progressive blog is dedicated to calling attention to what the purpose of government is, namely, serving the needs of the people it governs. Humane treatment of human beings - all of us being part of our healthy society.
The focus is to create an awareness of issues that affect us all. It is often necessary to strip away the spin that we are subjected to in topics ranging from child labor to pensions.
The goal is to have readers share the blog and discuss the issues via social networking, therefore you are asked to share the information and become as involved as possible in improving the human condition.
To put it another way:
"The purpose of human life is to serve, and to show compassion and the will to help others." - Albert Schweitzer
