      grown, doesn't mean your mind has too.  

      I respect those who went before in working for justice and against prejudice and solving problems without warfare.  (Of course the problems that can never be solved are the needs by some for treasure, power, greed, control and fear.)

      I'm not here to re-argue dead arguments...    But please continue on proclaiming how hippies are always right.
      You are the one who gave a label.  Some of us remember how the title was/is slung about by those who were disrespectful of justice and unnecessary slaughter.

      Some of us respect those before us who paved the way, often in the context of their times - Susan B Anthony, Frederick Douglas, Sojourner Truth, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, the Boston Unitarians, Quakers, doctors in New Haven, Pete Seeger, Honey on the Rock, Buffy St Marie, Mark Twain........and most importantly the "little people."  People who today push back against hunger, ignorance, Holocausts, genocide.

      Little People like most of us here.  People like my mother, father and aunt & uncle.  Maybe your grandparents?  The people and abolitionists of Auburn NY who supported Sojourner Truth.  The Unitarians of Rochester & Syracuse who supported Susan B.  

      The Laundry List gets very long.  

      Let's just say, I'm not telling you, I'm reminding you.
