Think not only of the rights granted you as a citizen of your country and a citizen of the world, but the obligations and duties that you can fulfill to be deserving of those rights. Do your part to earn those privileges bestowed on you for good conduct and contribution to the common good. Think not only of yourself but of the generations that shall come after you and afford them the same possibilities that you now enjoy. Remember that change is constant and the only question is whether or not that change will have a positive effect on our future and our children’s future…

Welcome to The Thinking Activist!

I am just a guy, with a handful of passions. There are a few things that I believe are fundamental issues to our nature, our civility and our humanity. Our progress and survival as a species and our development as a civilization hinges on the positive changes we make now; we must learn to look ahead, to consider the impact we have both within our lifetime and for centuries to come.

In this blog we can explore a variety of concerns and consider the best solutions – it is worth nothing to discuss an issue without also considering realistic AND compassionate solutions. It is my intent to share information and be an advocate for positive progress and I welcome any new information that might change our view on any subject.

I believe in being principled but I do not believe in absolutes. No one can lay claim to an ultimate truth but we can always improve ourselves, the lives of others and the world around us.
