What Now? Part One: Get Over Appearing Elitist

   The Big Con on America worked. A perfect storm of many failings (pick your favorite whipping boy) allowed the candidate who won over two million more votes to lose to a bigoted, offensive, failed businessman.
   Because consistency isn’t characteristic of this president-elect, we can’t know what’s in store. Whatever it is, it’ll fatten his pocketbook and ego - his pathological narcissism means the next four years look insecure.
   Because right-wing Republicans control Congress, their radical agenda with that of their Koch-brother-class owners will likely move forward. Without robust Democratic opposition, given the history of mainstream elite Democratic attempts to make nice, we could witness a major reactionary rightward shift.
   If those who object shun the 2018 election, as is their habit, these four years look like hell for America’s most vulnerable. Oh, the privileged, especially well-off white males, will do just fine.
   So, it’s time to do everything it takes to correct a repetition of failures this re-exposes to engineer a better future. However, many of the establishment institutions involved don’t appear ready to make the necessary changes that will move America out of this mess....

A Recent Comment:

"I see little discussion in the coast press that equals the thinking of Bob Minor ('Minor Details') including his, in this issue, saying that we must go beyond just calling bigots hypocrites - the religion itself has to be held accountable. He names names andis right: 'What we’re seeing is the heart of what right-wing religion itself really is, not merely hypocrisy.'"

-- Letter to the Editor in the Liberty Press where "Minor Details" has appeared monthly for 18 years, written by veteran LGBT activist (since 1959) and a founder of LA's Homosexual Information Center in 1968, Billy Glover

George Lakoff: "A Minority President: Why the Polls Failed, And What the Majority Can Do" (November 22, 2016)

Right now the majority is fighting back, pointing out what is wrong with Trump day after day. In many cases, they are missing the message of Don’t Think of an Elephant! By fighting against Trump, many protesters are just showcasing Trump, keeping him in the limelight, rather than highlighting the majority’s positive moral view and viewing the problem with Trump from within the majority’s positive worldview frame. To effectively fight for what is right, you have to first say what is right and why.
   The idea that must be brought across is empathy for those in your in-group, your town. This is basic progressive thought: citizens care about citizens and provide public resources for all, maximizing freedom. It fits in-group nurturance. And it undermines — rather than negates — strict father morality.

Dr. Minor Writing on Love, Dating, and Relationships
His Latest Column on 50

   I want to say this clearly. Sex, and I do mean genital activity and everything surrounding it, can really be a great thing. It’s one means of communicating between people that can embody a range of messages.
   It can be either intimate and close or detached and distant, whether it’s  a “one night stand” or sex with a committed partner. If we’re clear about what we’re doing and why we’re doing it, we can choose what any sexual activity will mean and what it communicates.
   But that’s the rub, so to speak. We are seldom clear about what’s going on when we have sex.....

NW PFLAG Leadership WorkshopThe Fairness Project On-Line Activist Tool Kit

The Fairness Project is in the process of making available the handout materials from Dr. Minor's popular workshop: "Being an Activist Without Being a Victim." These materials are chosen because they encourage activist leadership to proceed from a progressive, healing model which contradicts the models of leadership found in most popular forms, models that are meant to keep the system in place rather than to make changes that support humanity, and result in burnout among leaders.

To access the current materials in The Fairness Project Tool Kit for activist leaders, click here.
