Progressive politics, ideas & culture


Rhymes with chutney

American Leftie digest Utne celebrates its 20th anniversary in September/October 2004. I love lists, and the issue includes an inventory of themes and stories that they’ve covered (a few: New politics, Is psychotherapy useless? sustainable business, designer god) over the last 20 years. The list is followed by a list of 10 headlines for the next 20 years. Some tongue-in-cheek, some sadly prophetic (The Wild Tiger Vanishes).
Here’s my favourite. Congratulations Utne.
Historical Reenactors Turn Left
Historical reenactment, once the preserve of Civil War buffs and other military types, will expand to commemorate labor struggles like the Pullman strike of 1893 and grassroots actions like the anti-Vietnam War protests.
