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

Drink Giroux















George Orwell’s nightmarish vision of a totalitarian society casts a dark shadow over the United States. As American society has moved from a welfare to a warfare state, the institutions that were once meant to limit human suffering and misfortune and protect the public from the excesses of the market have been either weakened or abolished. With the withering, if not evisceration, of the social contract, the discourse of social responsibility has been removed from the principles of democratic reform.

I don't link to articles here often, but when I do I prefer to link to Henry Giroux.

Quite simply, the tastiest link in the world.  Stay thirsty my friends.
