Millie Rooney and the Paralysed Progressive

2020-08-19T08:56:31+10:00By |Categories: Text|Tags: , |

A fun, casual, roving discourse/commentary/personal essay about identity, feelings of paralysis in progressive culture and ideas on how we can move forward in a practical way, centred around conversations had during a recent visit back to Hobart to stay with Millie Rooney (I moved from Tassie to Melbourne recently). Millie holds a PhD in social geography and is co-ordinator of the Australia ReMADE Alliance. In the story, we will touch on critiques of progressive culture, ideas about how to build a productive movement, and anecdotal experiences that highlight the common ground between people with different world views. Enjoy!
