Because there are hundreds of progressive and liberal bloggers on the web, it isn't practical to include most of them in
this list.Also, many people who start a blog will abandon it within one or two years because they don't attract many followers or
simply aren't able to continue doing the work it takes to keep making new posts.So for these reasons, this list is limited to
established blogs and blog hubs.Also, please note that many of the best-known writers can be found at the news and opinion sites.
One of the best ways to make progressive views known to the American public is through live television and radio
broadcasts.These shows often include interviews with well-known activists, and most allow viewers or listeners to call in and make
comments and ask questions.Some liberal media personalities also reach large audiences by means of podcasts.One primary purpose
of these shows is to fight the flood of lies and misinformation continually being put out by conservative political groups.Humor
and satire are sometimes also used for this same purpose, as well as to provide entertainment for the audiences.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Many
of the shows and podcasts in this category can be found on sites such as tunein.com, stitcher.com, itunes.apple.com, and castbox.fm.But
because these shows tend to move around, and are often available at more than one internet location, some of the links in this list
point to a personal or company web page where you can find the latest scheduling information.
Numerous organizations are working to bring an end to the many forms of discrimination in the United States.The
protection of basic civil rights for all members of society is a main priority, but many subtle forms of intolerance also need attention.Although
much progress has been made in the past, old attitudes don't die easily, and a number of discriminatory practices are still common.The
main victims include racial minorities, immigrants, women, and GLBT groups.In the worst cases, extremist hate groups commit
acts of violence against their chosen targets.We've come a long way, but much work still needs to be done.
For many years the inflation-adjusted wages of ordinary workers in the U.S. have been declining, although average
productivity has steadily increased.During this same period Republicans in Congress have repeatedly blocked proposed increases
in the minimum wage that would have helped millions of the poor keep up with inflation.Meanwhile the wealthiest members of society
have gotten an ever-greater share of the total income.Many corporate executives receive huge and totally-unjustified salaries,
often continuing to do so even after making stupid management decisions that hurt the prospects of the company and sometimes put thousands
of people out of work.
Other job-related problems include the lower pay rates for women and minorities, unsafe working conditions,
and the exploitation of undocumented workers.Unnecessary government assistance to certain industries, particularly the subsidies
to energy, agricultural, and healthcare companies, is another area of concern.Many companies also benefit from special tax breaks
and loopholes.All of these are examples of the economic unfairness that has led to the uneven distribution of wealth in the
United States and the widespread poverty found through much of the country.
Most of the problems in the U.S. healthcare system stem from the horribly inefficient bureaucracies
of the big insurance companies.The inefficiency at these companies is the main reason why healthcare costs in the United States
tend to be several times greater per person than in countries that have national healthcare systems, even though the overall quality
of medical treatment is often worse in the U.S. Not only does the bureaucratic bloat of these private insurance companies add directly
to the costs, the necessity of dealing with their complicated rules hinders the work of doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals.
big pharmaceutical companies also contribute to the problem, often charging far higher prices for their drugs within the United States
than in other countries.Although the Affordable Care Act of 2010 has led to considerable progress in controlling costs and improving
treatment, many improvements are still possible.
According to government statistics,
gun violence kills about 30,000 people in the United States each year.To put this number in perspective, it is about five times
greater than the total number of American lives lost in both Iraq wars combined.It is also a far higher rate of firearm-related
deaths than is found in other developed western countries, all of which have much stricter gun control laws.
Efforts to reduce gun
violence in the U.S. have been thwarted by the lobbying activities of the powerful National Rifle Association, which is actually controlled,
not by recreational gun users as is claimed, but by firearms manufacturers.Gun making and gun selling are highly profitable
businesses, and nobody should be surprised that companies in this industry fight so hard to protect "gun rights".
states and cities have managed to enact tighter gun control laws, the number of firearm-related deaths has always fallen significantly.But
the gun lobby spends large sums of money to oppose such restrictions, and it takes a lot of effort to make any gains in this area.
