"If by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people -- their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties -- ... then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal."

Some of my favorite sites
- Name: sans-culotte
- Location: United States
sans-culottes translates literally to 'no breeches'. The name was chosen by the working class French Revolutionaries (you know, the "off with their heads" crowd) opposed to aristocracy who triggered what would eventually end dynastic rule across Europe. Les enragés (angry ones) were a distinct group of sans-culottes. So, I'm either into going around bottomless, or I identify with the movement, or both. I kinda like the ambiguity. More on sans-culottes here......

The blogs are to me the realm of the neo sans-culottes. Not as an instigator of a violent overthrow of any government, but as a powerful medium that can be utilized by all stripes, but tamed by none. The blogs can be a powerful leveler that no government actor, no elite megalomaniac, no corporate entity, nor the most well-connected special interests can long ignore. As long as the internet remains free, we have the means to affect change in ways not seen since Louis XIV was forced to kneel.
I'd really like to know what others are thinking. I read every comment, and try to respond to most. If you have any questions and/or tips/ complaints/ compliments/ suggestions please contact meThank you for visiting sans-culotte.org
