Blogging needs to operate on the other side of the log in

Accessing this blog requires a login to the ALARA website, restricting these of access. If I say: "Here is a cogent critique of the Occupy movement," one that engenders hope for a revival of the civic realm, who will notice?

If I say: "Cornel West and Paul Carter seem to be pointing to a similar practice of honesty in suffering," I stay my hand at saying more. I will not discuss my own experience of complaint and the possibilities of moving from complaint to critique. What's the point, other than my enriching a movement in myself already well advanced? Who will respond, here inside the small box of the ALARA website?

If I want to find colleagues, I'll have to leave the ALARA website. The only alternative is to shift our blogging facility outside the login.
