This was a major victory in the Culture Wars, but there is still a lot to do. We have to reclaim soul of America from those who would divide rather than unite, debase humanity rather than celebrate it, and those who embrace hate and reject love.
In many ways, we have been granted a cosmic do-over. The people are activated, and starting to believe that anything is possible again. This optimism is what makes us our best.

Everyone, regardless of ethnicity, religion, class, gender, or orientation is made equal and capable of doing the things they set their minds to. We lost this idea, as a nation and as a world. You can see it clearly in our popular entertainment.

My name is Charlie, but if your looking for my work, I go by C. E. Dorsett. I write scifi, fantasy, and a touch of horror. I like to play with gothic, steampunk, decopunk, epic fantasy, and wuxia. I love to tell stories and talk about books, movies, series, and music.
