Democratic Underground is bigger than you or I

It's bigger than all of us

It's bigger than the Admins (and Kudos for them, for EVERYTHING!)

It's bigger than the Democratic Party.

And it's bigger than the coalition of the left.

It is, quite succinctly, the real system.

That tap into the pulse of Liberal Democratic America.

That pulse of righteousness and truth.

Hard to explain, but I understand it now.

33. So I do a little reading.



From Wiki -


The Clouds (Νεφέλαι / Nephelai) is a comedy...

Short summary

Faced with legal action for non-payment of debts, Strepsiades, an elderly Athenian, enrolls his son in the "thinkeria" (the "Phrontisterion") so that he might learn the rhetorical skills necessary to defeat their creditors in court. The son thereby learns cynical disrespect for social mores and contempt for authority and he subsequently beats his father up during a domestic argument, in return for which Strepsiades sets The Thinkery on fire.



Later the play is locked for violating TOS.


That seems so familiar.

And the "funny" part of the play is constantly making fart-noises. IIRC.

I don't think so.

I keep it on all the time. If it's big in regards of affecting peoples lives, I don't think so, not like organized politics or religion or even Rush Limbaugh. We at dem-unground don't engage in casting spells or manipulation or a universe that is overinflated. We just try to get the word out, and let people make up their own minds. Sounds like the way it should be!

That feel they own this place. If you disagree on an issue you are expected to toe the line on people pretty much spit on you (literally). In a way, this place is like a bubble. It doesn't always represent what is going on in reality. That's my 2 cents.

That said, DU is just a political opinion site with alternate groups and forums for other subjects. It's not really bigger than anything, its just a website....jeez!

But not at big as the real Progressive movement. It is a vital part, I do agree. The pulse, not just of righteousness and truth, but the antithesis to evil, corporate plundering, nightmarish planetary destruction, and the scourge of racist, sexist, and homophobic nonsense perpetuated by the most destructive force the planet has ever known: the republican Party.

DU exemplifies not just our quest, but our own vitality and existance. Recs galore.
