Combined PING to two ping lists
Moral Clarity BUMP !
This ping list is not author-specific for articles I'd like to share. Some for the perfect moral clarity, some for provocative thoughts; or simply interesting articles I'd hate to miss myself. (I don't have to agree with the author all 100% to feel the need to share an article.) I will try not to abuse the ping list and not to annoy you too much, but on some days there is more of the good stuff that is worthy of attention. You can see the list of articles I pinged to lately on my page.
You are welcome in or out, just freepmail me (and note which PING list you are talking about). Besides this one, I keep 2 separate PING lists for my favorite authors Victor Davis Hanson and Orson Scott Card.
This article will be posted permanently (eventually) on his The Ornery American website http://www.ornery.org/essays/warwatch/index.html
Whoooof! Excellent editorial by Card. Too bad it won't get much play in the print media.
This is possibly the best article I've ever read on FR.
This is one of the most precise and accurate articles about the anti-war Establishment that I have ever read.
Thanks for posting this. I sent this to my hubby at PACOM to send out to all his troops.
I am so proud of Orson Scott Card, a favorite sci-fi author. He is a liberal who gets it, as indicated in several excellent articles written since 9/11. If we could slip what he's drinking into the kool-aid that the leftist moonbats are drinking, then we have a chance to win the WOT.
There is a meaner aspect to it, IMHO, and that is that some - not all, but some - people who play heroes come to resent the real thing because they know they're only playing them. Real heroes, too, are complex people with as many faults as the rest of us, and a true portrayal of their characters should include those. That does not excuse an actor or director's tendency to exaggerate them in compensation for their own feelings of inferiority, and I suggest that there's been all too much of that.
And Card is right - they do not like being called The Establishment. It just isn't romantic.
Long and well worth a read.
Orson Scott Card for President!
He could be the third Democrat I would have ever voted for.
