The intent of this blog is to promote human equality, human progress, human peace and justice, and optimism. To accomplish this, to encourage the discussion of ideas after identifying and discovering problems, and then creating positive solutions for "we the people," in order to provide for the "general welfare" and "domestic tranquility" of America now and its "posterity" into the future. To encourage an emphasis on separation of religion and state for all, no matter if this is for those "of faith" in a Maker / Creator (Deists, God-loving people, Christians, various people of spirituality) and atheists or agnostics.

Learning from History

My paternal English ancestors arrived in New England in 1638. My maternal Dutch ancestors arrived earlier than that but in the colony of New Netherlands. The 1619 Project was started in order to recognize and explain the history of Africans who arrived here in the 1600s. They arrived earlier than my white English. Sad to say, it was those like on my Dutch side who worked for the Dutch East Indies company and were part and parcel of bringing Africans to America. Sad story, but, indeed, I am happy that so many of the Dutch reformed themselves and became human beings, shedding ideas of enslavement of Africans.
