Mining Party

We had a good crowd for the Mine Your Own Business DVD-viewing party. People enjoyed watching it and it generated a lot of discussion.

My favorite line was from some British academic. He said that progressives have stopped believing in progress.

I stopped and thought about that one. Like most broad generalizations of big ideological movements, it's easy to find exceptions. But it's true that Progress with a capital P is no longer the ideal it once was in liberal circles.

Move forward with a will.
Forget about standing still.

Try stopping in your tracks,
And you'll soon start drifting back.
