Random Liberals

We are random liberals (who knew?). Collectively, we make up the greatest blog in the history of ourselves. We will blog about anything that suits us; mostly politics, with a little bit of religion and randomness to make the blog exciting.

UPDATE: From Dr. King's Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech in 1964:

| "Civilization and violence are antithetical concepts. Negroes of the United
| States, following the people of India, have demonstrated that nonviolence is
| not sterile passivity, but a powerful moral force which makes for social
| transformation. Sooner or later all the people of the world will have to
| discover a way to live together in peace, and thereby transform this pending
| cosmic elegy into a creative psalm of brotherhood, If this is to be achieved,
| man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge,
| aggression and retaliation. The foundation of such a method is love.
| The tortuous road which has led from Montgomery, Alabama, to Oslo bears
| witness to this truth. This is a road over which millions of Negroes are
| travelling to find a new sense of dignity. This same road has opened for all
| Americans a new era of progress and hope. It has led to a new Civil Rights
| Bill, and it will, I am convinced, be widened and lengthened into a super
| highway of justice as Negro and white men in increasing numbers create
| alliances to overcome their common problems."

The full text of the speech is here.

Yesterday was the 36th anniversary of the murder of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Unfortunately, I was too busy to post this yesterday, so it was relegated to today. My apologies. I wanted to have a quote here, but I did not plan ahead of time, and so I don't have one ready. Again, my apologies. I will try to have a quote here tomorrow.
