What this blog is all about

In contrast to the glut of heartbreaking and infuriating articles found in alternative news sites, this blog presents an analysis of the current situation in the U.S.A. from a political, historical and intellectual perspective. We are not optimistic about solutions but are happy to support Ron Paul's political campaign despite our disagreement with his blatantly anti-libertarian stance on abortion and other issues. His campaign will serve, at least, to help frame a serious constitutional debate. This will be highly beneficial to the educated minority consisting of those individuals who have effected changes and provided progress, however slow, in the evolution of human society.

From: War and the Intellectuals -- Randolph Bourne 1917

"What shall we do with leaders who tell us that we go to war in moral spotlessness, or who make "democracy" synonymous with a republican form of government? There is work to be done in still shouting that all the revolutionary by-products will not justify the war, or make war anything else than the most noxious complex of all the evils that afflict men."
