"on the subject of terrorism, a quote from james hillman,
quoting henry corbin: ' what is wrong with the islamic world
is that it has destroyed its images, and without these images
that are so rich and so full in its tradition, they are going crazy
because they have no containers
for their extraordinary imaginative power.'
looking at the faces of arabs on newscasts, i believe i see this truth.

Some paradoxes

"Which is better, eternal happiness or a ham sandwich?
It would appear that eternal happiness is better,
but this is really not so!
After all, nothing is better than eternal happiness,
and a ham sandwich is certainly better than nothing.
Therefore a ham sandwich is better than eternal happiness."

Why Bush can't leave America -- and why that matters

"What country could this president visit that wouldn't
immediately erupt into massive civil unrest?...
it has come to this: The American president,
who once symbolized the value of freedom
to many people around the world,
can now only visit countries where dissent is crushed.

So what's it going to be, Mr. President: Havana or Beijing? "

The Second Superpower Rears its Beautiful Head
"There is an emerging second superpower, but it is not a nation.
Instead, it is a new form of international player,
constituted by the “will of the people”
in a global social movement.
The beautiful but deeply agitated face of this second superpower
is the worldwide peace campaign, but the body of the movement
is made up of millions of people concerned with a broad agenda
that includes social development, environmentalism, health,
and human rights.
This movement has a surprisingly agile and muscular body
of citizen activists who identify their interests
with world society as a whole
—and who recognize that at a fundamental level we are all one."
via caterina, who has "been thinking a lot lately
about war being not between nations,
but between those who want war
and those who don't."
