Subtly, Profoundly (If Way Late), America Grows Up

Abby Zimet

Today in CD Views, a great, thoughtful piece by David Michael Green about the amorphous but welcome change the Obama presidency brings to the level of our national political discourse.

"Whatever one feels about Barack Obama's
policies, watching his thoughtful, respectful and intelligent approach
to the politics of our time provides a stunning contrast to the faux
swagger, willful stupidity, and inherent contempt for the public of
his predecessor.....
Impoverished, deceived, broken and isolated,
America is finally growing up."

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.

Because of people like you, another world is possible. There are many battles to be won, but we will battle them together—all of us. Common Dreams is not your normal news site. We don't survive on clicks. We don't want advertising dollars. We want the world to be a better place. But we can't do it alone. It doesn't work that way. We need you. If you can help today—because every gift of every size matters—please do.
