    I know the feeling and it's been a long time coming.  I was reading some things in a dead thread this morning that just strengthened those feelings.  I've already moved on, for the most part.  This isn't the place where any real change will happen, imho.  Pretty sad.  We need new leading voices and I think they will rise up and are rising up.  Now we just need new places where people can speak freely, new ways of doing things.    

    It's time for new things to happen.  I think they are happening, just not here.  This is the status quo now, the equivalent of a DNC blog.

    ...

    Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love; for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is as perennial as the grass.

    Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

    Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here.

    And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labors and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul. With all its shams, drudgery, and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful.

    Strive to be happy.

    I think the things that we are working on are as perennnial as the grass too.  But it's time to move on and gather with people who really want to try to make the world a better place and to try to break through the propaganda, not add to it or amplify it.
