Yes, I am the Don Berg who helped gather over 55,000 signatures for campaign finance reform in Portland, Oregon. That's me on the far right (of the photo, not the politics). I am the Treasurer of Portland Clean Air which managed the paid petitioners who gathered over 45,000 of those signatures.

When technology corrupts "personalized learning" it looks like teacher's plugging kids into screens. If they were truly personalizing the kids would be able to pursue their own goals, not the teacher's goals. DeVonte's quote tells the story.

Mere obedience to authority is not enough. Learning about authority, who has it and who deserves it, is far more powerful.

Control, not size. If you ignore the use of power it'll bite you!

Just in case you needed data to confirm the world's low opinion of the US at this time and that this is a major reversal from the previous presidential administration. It is even worse than the previous GOP administration in its last two years.

Interesting facts about the winter solstice for all those who believe the Earth is an oblate spheroid. I wonder how flat earthers explain this stuff? (Though obviously not enough to look it up.)

I was briefly associated with the sovereign citizen aspect of the "Patriot" movement in the 1990's. I didn't hear any hate at the local  meeting I attended, but then again I only went once or twice. When I finally figured out that the logic is basically circular I moved on.
 
They don't realize that the meaning of words are socially constructed. Meaning is not an objective property of the words in themselves. They do believe that the constitution means exactly what they say it means and that it can't possibly mean something else. The irony is that the meanings they come up with are socially constructed by them to serve their notions of what they should be able to do with their freedom. 
 
Given my brief association I find SPLC's work very fascinating. It is also important work today, given the new opportunity that hate has been given at the national level.
