Political Correctness

"I believe in robust debate. The truth is best found by discourse: I advance one argument, you counter with a different argument, somebody else with a third perspective. Slowly, as a group, we begin to refine our view."

A Time to Listen, Not to Spout

A Time to Listen, Not to Spout

Events of historic importance are slowly unfolding south of Mandan, North Dakota, near the boundary of another nation state, the Standing Rock Indian Reservation. The Dakota Access Pipeline protest has grown into something much larger and more important for the future of white-Indian relations. As we in the non-Indian community look on, it is essential that we try to shut up and just listen for a change.
