Quote of the Day
I feel that my role as a former president is probably superior to that of other presidents. Primarily because of the activism and the injection of working at the Carter Center, and in international affairs, and to some degree, domestic affairs, on energy conservation, on environment, and things of that kind.
My generation of bossy, confident, baby-boom women were something brand new in history. Our energy and assertiveness weren't created by Betty Friedan, unknown before her 1963 book, or by Gloria Steinem, whose political activism, as even the Lifetime profile admitted, did not begin until 1969.

That attitude that fighting is probably not fair, but you have to defend yourself anyway and damage the enemy, has been profoundly consequential as far as my political activism goes.
'Empathy' is the latest code word for liberal activism, for treating the Constitution as malleable clay to be kneaded and molded in whatever form justices want. It represents an expansive view of the judiciary in which courts create policy that couldn't pass the legislative branch or, if it did, would generate voter backlash.
Activism, to me, I don't know if it really works. It may work for somebody else, but it does not work for me.
Our aims in political activism are not, and should not be, to create a perfect utopia.

But as for activism, my parents did what they could, given the constraints, but were never involved in the causes I think of when I think of activists.
The Body Shop Foundation is run by our staff and supports social activism and environmental activism. We don't tend to support big agencies.
Art is about the edges and the sharp corners and those places are not conducive to activism, which is about putting on a gloss.
Activism isn't about holding your faults up to the light. That's what comedy is about, it's about saying, 'Look at this person who is so flawed and frail and damaged. And we're all this frail and damaged so let's laugh at it.'
My attention since 'Clueless' has been on family, relationships, activism, the planet, and my career.

So the danger of conservative judicial activism has been averted for another year. Stay tuned.

If we believe there is something going wrong with the company, then we, as shareholders, must become active and vocal.
What drew me to both study and activism was the formative experience of the civil rights movement.
David E. Price
