Hope you all have a wonderful time with friends and family. Take time to count your blessings and maybe do something for those who could need a bit of help.
And, if you want a bit of comic relief, read what this professor has to say about our national day of giving thanks.
One indication of moral progress in the United States would be the replacement of Thanksgiving Day and its self-indulgent family feasting with a National Day of Atonement accompanied by a self-reflective collective fasting.And it gets better from there.
In fact, indigenous people have offered such a model; since 1970 they have marked the fourth Thursday of November as a Day of Mourning in a spiritual/political ceremony on Coles Hill overlooking Plymouth Rock, Massachusetts, one of the early sites of the European invasion of the Americas.
Yes, until we evil Europeans invaded, the peaceful, noble savages of the Americas lived in a virtual Eden. All of the tribes lived peacefully. There was no war. Women had equal rights. Gays were accepted just like in Little Big Man
Isn't it wonderful when a positive human attribute like humility becomes a fetish of self hatred.
