On Christmas 2.0, Or, Who Might Be The New Santa?

I’ve been thinking a lot about the evolution of Christmas, and I’ve been thinking that there is a lot about the current practice that we can admire.

Peace and good will, of course, and cookies and candy canes, and happy kids – and this is also the time we think the most about those less fortunate, as do Jews and Muslims, who also have holiday celebrations this time of the year that include a component of charity.

But if there is anything that I could change about the modern practice of Christmas, it would be the installation of Santa Claus as an icon of consumer spending, more or less to the exclusion of everything else.

As an intellectual exercise, I started thinking about what a different Santa might be like; today’s story lays out who a few candidates might be for “Santa 2.0” and why.

So go grab a cookie, and, perhaps, a refreshing beverage…and let’s have some post-Christmas fun.

Michael Moore in Wisconsin--HOT

Just listened to Michael Moore from Sunday in Madison. He was simply great - great speech. I strongly recommend everyone listen to it asap. I am usually never moved by speeches, but this one inspired me, despite my usual jaded, cynical self.

What Michael Moore Can Teach Us

Cross posted from The Progressive Pulse

I’m sure most of you have either seen Michael Moore’s latest release, SiCKO, or you have read the numerous reviews. It is an excellent piece of work on many different levels. Mostly, it is an indictment of the private for-profit health insurance industry. As such, he is advocating for government sponsored universal health coverage and contrasts the American healthcare system with those of Canada, England, France, and Cuba.
