Just 'Cause

Just 'Cause

just (adj.) - consistent with moral right; fair; equitable; properly due or merited

cause (n.) - a goal or principle served with dedication and zeal; the interests of a person or group engaged in a struggle

Below is a list of links to sites about some of the many 'causes' that concerned persons of all kinds might have. Not all those listed below are things I personally carry banners for, but I don't feel that my own causes are the only legitimate ones. I hope this list will grow and broaden in its scope over time. Please e-mail me if you know of a worthy cause that is not represented below, or want to add a URL to one of the existing headings.

I really do want your help in determining what goes on this page. I will try to group related subjects together, and if you have input on that, I'll listen, but I will not make any attempt to "prioritize" these links, so don't ask! Different things are important to different people, and I can't anticpate everyone, so I'm not even going to try.

Finding links is easier than deciding which ones to include; the advice I gave Peni on links for the X-Files page was to put up a link to one place that is attempting to be a comprehensive, one stop shopping X-Files site, and then add links for those places she thought were especially noteworthy due to content, design or originality. I find myself unable to follow my own advice on this page, because I don't imagine myself competent to decide, for example, which of the Womens' Issues links are the best ones for women to look at. I can guess, of course, as I can guess about sites related to ethnicity, politics or sexual preference, but that's all I can do. So why do a page like this at all?

Just 'cause I wanted to...

Racial/Ethnic/Religious Minority Issues

I apologize if the current politically correct term is not being used in every case below. It has been my experience (as a free, white, over-21 straight male Anglo-Saxon Protestant, admittedly) that different racial/ethnic/religious "labels" are acceptable or not depending on who you talk to. Do I say "Indian" or "Native American", "Hispanic" or "Latino", "Black" or "African-American"? Even persons belonging to those groups don't universally agree. What chance does that give me?

Why can't we all just get along?

Government Issues

This section is meant for things like government spending, government censorship of the Internet, and so forth. A link to the 1996 Presidential Election is included, on the theory that some of the candidates may include issues of interest in their campaign platforms. Other than that, I do not expect to have much here in the way of political links.
