She is known for the promotion of the 'Princess's Spirit', independent culture creation, a form of 'back-to-basics' liberalism that combines elements of both Rawls-style liberalism and libertarianism, and ideas based on this particular form of liberalism.
She is also a keen supporter of marriage equality, a version of family values that is LGBT-inclusive (she calls this 'adaptive family values'), and marriage privatization.
Intersectional feminism, as it is practiced now, is what I would describe as GLIF, i.e. Gatekeeper Limited Intersectional Feminism. Its discourse and perspective is entirely limited by what the gatekeepers think is acceptable, and the priorities of the movement reflect this bias.
Angelle's vision is based on freedom, dreams, love and fairness. However, the culture wars, and the influence of global movements from the Tea Party to the Occupy Protests, combine to make Pacificland a daily ideological warzone. Meanwhile reforms like marriage equality stalled seemingly forever. With her own dreams on the line, will Angelle stay true to her values?
Natalie is a young trans woman living in the early 21st century. Her diaries chart both her own transition story, and the cultural and political events of the 2000s and 2010s in the US, UK and Australia. In the beginning, she had felt rejected by feminism all her life, and also decided to reject feminism. However, as feminism changed, so did her perspective.
This book will demonstrate why liberalism remains the best political ideology, for both the culturally conservative and progressive alike. Moreover, liberalism is also a cultural attitude, one where freedom of speech, respect of each other’s moral consciences, and rational debate are encouraged. A revival of liberalism would also mean a revival of these values.
This book is a first attempt to pave a practical way towards marriage privatization. It provides practical reforms that can be argued for in the sphere of everyday politics, that will ultimately lead to a society where people are truly free to opt for private marriages.
Throughout this book, I will be telling my own story so far, as a cultural voice in this rapidly changing world. But I will also be illustrating the wider story of how profoundly the world changed, in these first two decades of the 21st century. The technology changed first, and that was groundbreaking enough, but I think that the greatest change was in the culture.
This book outlines some of the major events and cultural themes of the first two decades of the 21st century.
This book was written as a reference companion to my other books, especially the Princess’s Spirit novels, as my viewpoint of this period has deeply affected my writing. However, I believe it may also be interesting more generally as one ‘participant’ perspective on this period.
In this finale, Angelle continues to pursue her dream to become Cultural Royalty of Pacificland, while also trying to make her world a better place for all, in the name of the Princess’s Spirit. Similar to the situation in many other countries, the 2010s are a divisive time in Pacificland, and those who want their message heard have to navigate wisely and strategically.
In this sequel, Angelle continues to pursue her dream to become Cultural Royalty of Pacificland, while also trying to make her world a better place for all, in the name of the Princess’s Spirit. However, the challenges are more than what she could ever imagine.
The family as an institution has existed for the entire duration of human civilization, and in all but a few unfortunate exceptional cases, has served to support and enrich the lives of humans in countless generations. This book is dedicated to ideas of how we can adaptively apply the ideals of family values to modern society.
The Princess's Spirit is all about dreams and visions, including for a better world. It calls for love and compassion, caring for the less fortunate ones in society. It is something that touches our hearts, and has been captured in both the original Princess's Spirit novels, and other stories in books, the small screen and the big screen.
If liberals, left-liberals and right-liberals alike, share something in common, it's the fundamental belief in liberty. Liberalism is unlike any other ideology, in that it does not seek to use government to social engineer a certain type of society. It's high time the true meaning of liberalism as a core belief is recognised again.
The 21st century is like no other time in human history. Just the first less than two decades that we have seen so far, the 2000s and the 2010s, have seen a great expansion in the possibilities for everyone to contribute to the cultural pool, with major implications. We need to harness this power for good, we have a responsibility to do so.
This is a book by a dreamer, for dreamers, and all about the dreamers' perspective on life. The message is clear: you can and should keep being a dreamer, because not only do you not want to give up too soon, but being a dreamer also helps the world in an important way.
Angelle's dream is to become Cultural Royalty of Pacificland. Her vision is based on freedom, dreams, love and fairness for all. However, she soon finds that whilst change appears to be in the air, the resistance is often even greater. With her own dreams on the line, will Angelle stay true to her values? And if she does, will it be enough to make a positive difference?
Society tends to think of 20-somethings and 30-somethings as people who are young, vibrant, have a great lifestyle and an endlessly optimistic future. But believe it or not, many 20-somethings and 30-somethings are in crisis. The book will explain this in more detail, and will have a strong focus on how we can keep our young spirits alive for the long ride ahead towards our dreams in life.
This is a collection of articles about marriage equality, written in 2011-2013, by TaraElla. TaraElla is a singer-songwriter, and has been a strong supporter of marriage equality for over a decade. Many of these articles were written to sincerely convince conservatives to come on board the movement, therefore they may be particularly useful for convincing people to support marriage equality.
TaraElla is a singer-songwriter. She is, however, most notable for her cultural projects. This book contains articles she has written over the years, with ideas on how we can make the world a better place.
