Quote of the Day

In our age there is no such thing as 'keeping out of politics.' All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.-- George Orwell

“I would rather be a swineherd at Amagerbro and be understood by the swine than be a poet and be misunderstood by people.” ― Søren Kierkegaard, Either/Or: A Fragment of Life

The East Meets West Talkin' Conservative Blues

I found this in CounterPunch, of all places.

Mainstream conservatism gets a royal kick in the ass in this thoughtful piece by Ron Unz.  With conservative critics like Unz, it is no wonder today's Republican Party can't figure out what it believes or represents.

It's a long piece, but follow it closely and you'll find some highly persuasive writing which backs the notion that U.S. dissent is a many-toothed animal.
