As we begin the new year the future seems foreboding and optimism in short supply. It is an axiom of progressive politics and one of the founding principles of the Old Mole that progressive change begins at the margins—from minorities and the oppressed. Today Tom Becker reads from an article which eloquently expresses this reality—both the darkness and a glimmer of hope. The article, Facing the Winter of the Soul, was originally published in Counterpunch on December 23, 2021 and was written by activist and journalist Patrick Mazza, who has focused for decades on sustainability and solutions to climate disruption.
