Eleanor Roosevelt received an award from the League for Industrial Democracy
PGA Weblog ^

Posted on 12/22/2012 8:53:25 AM PST by ProgressingAmerica

In "The L.I.D.: Fifty years of democratic education, 1905-1955", written by Mina Weisenberg, the following is written: (Page 36)

ELEANOR ROOSEVELT, Recipient of L.I.D. Award, 1953; "First Woman of the World"

A decade later, the SDS would come out of the League for Industrial Democracy. Previous to calling itself LID, the League called itself the ISS; Intercollegiate Socialist Society.

And to be sure, it's not likely that Mrs. Roosevelt rejected the award. One of her favorite books was written by a Fabian Socialist, Prestonia Mann Martin. (1) (2)

Where this becomes frustrating, is things like this:

Organization of Alumni Chapters is being considered at Berkeley and Fresno, California. The Chicago Fabian Society, which is informally connected with the I.S.S., is holding successful meetings.

That's from the writings of the Intercollegiate Socialist Society themselves. Informal connections, and they've been doing it this way for 100+ years. These radicals, revolutionaries, and evolutionaries, who seek to usurp power and rule over our lives have decentralized themselves. That's why we need to take the time to discover the networks.©®

At least they're connected enough to wish each other happy birthday under more honest auspices.

Never heard of her. But LID member Joseph P. Lash, former head of their youth division, was a close friend of Eleanor Roosevelt's. There were even stories of a relationship. Eleanor's friendships could be so close and passionate that it's hard to tell whether physical intimacies were actually involved.

If anybody wants on/off the revolutionary progressivism ping list, send me a message

Progressives do not want to discuss their own history. I want to discuss their history.

To all out there. There is a book that was published in 1948 titled; The Roosevelt Myth by John Flynn. It can be downloaded as a PDF. It disects the Roosevelt administration and FDR.

Then you can make the comparison to Obama. Just that Obama is a 100 times worse.

No surprise.

We have “progressed” hell bent for today from the beginning!
Hamilton one of the first big government/us bank advocates, with many eventual followers through the years; then a hard left turn w/lincoln.; followed by more and more potus and other top echelon politicians of the socialist persuasion.

Even B4 lincoln, Karl Marx himself was writing for the NYT, via Horace Greeley.

Presently, we are in the hands of.....”The Closer” (the way I see things).

Like fdr said, In politics nothing happens by accident.

Prestonia? That sounds like a country in the movie “Duck Soup.”
