Let us Give Thanks!

Currently - Major Progress


Nuclear Weapons are Illegal

But while this is a major breakthrough, it hasn't solved the problem by itself. Countries that actually possess nuclear weapons are ignoring it. We still have plenty of work to do - but we'll be better able to do it with this development, for which we're grateful.



Roe v. Wade has been Overturned

As of June 12, 2022, the Dobbs decision of the U.S. Supreme Court explicitly overturned Roe v. Wade. This has removed a major obstacle. We still have plenty of work to do - but we'll be better able to do it with this development, for which we're grateful.




 

Historical Forms of Killing Subsiding


These Were Socially Approved and Rampant -- But Can Barely Be Found Now:


  • Gladiator games

  • Burning of “witches” and “heretics”


Or Are Now Fairly Uncommon:


  • Executions for crimes other than homicide

  • Public killing or torture to “set an example”

  • Ceremonial human sacrifice

  • Legally enforced slavery

  • Lynching, tar-and-feathering, and other vigilante mob violence

Quotation of the Week

Henry David Thoreau

Letter to Harrison Gray Blake, 1856

I am grateful for what I am & have. My thanksgiving is perpetual. It is surprising how contented one can be with nothing definite — only a sense of existence . . . O how I laugh when I think of my vague indefinite riches. No run on my bank can drain it, for my wealth is not possession but enjoyment.
