Description

The Nation's Katrina vanden Heuvel says today’s liberalism is nothing new. http://bigthink.com/katrinavandenheuvel vanden Heuvel:    For me, it does begin with a, you know, a kind of non-corporate approach to life.  It begins with a world that is more peaceful, more just.  It begins with the mantra which [informed] the Obama campaign's best part, in my view, which was the organizing from below, which was about respect, inclusion, opportunity, empowerment, and those are attributes of a Left and progressive community that I believe in, and independence is what The Nation has been about for 143 years, so that we've never been, as we stated in our founding statement in 1865, the organ of any party, and that is where you find, I think, a strong basis for being a true, free-thinking, Liberal lefty progressive. vanden Heuvel:    For me, it does begin with a, you know, a kind of non-corporate approach to life.  It begins with a world that is more peaceful, more just.  It begins with the mantra which [informed] the Obama campaign's best part, in my view, which was the organizing from below, which was about respect, inclusion, opportunity, empowerment, and those are attributes of a Left and progressive community that I believe in, and independence is what The Nation has been about for 143 years, so that we've never been, as we stated in our founding statement in 1865, the organ of any party, and that is where you find, I think, a strong basis for being a true, free-thinking, Liberal lefty progressive.
