March for Life

Today, once again, one of the largest protest movements in America will be ignored – the March for Life in Washington DC. The march routinely draws 250,000 people. Last year there were an estimated 400,000 people. Those are big rallies, far bigger than the Occupy rallies, for example. The Occupy rallies received 24 hour news attention and was presented as representing a large swath of the American public. I just perused msnbc and cnn and so no mention of the March for Life at all. I doubt it will even make most papers or newscasts.

About Kleiner

Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Utah State University. I teach across the curriculum, but am most interested in continental philosophy, ancient and medieval philosophy as well as Catholic thought, all of which might be summed up as an interest in the ressourcement tradition (returning in order to make progress). I also enjoy spending time thinking about liberal education and its ends.
