Cowards and Militarists

Good Morning. A few new items today. Cue up the Sousa.

  • When a society is no longer exclusively and vigilantly civil, its claim to be a civilized society, let alone a civilizing one, is in peril. Other countries have been discovering that about the United States . We’re discovering it at home, too, every time a police shield is flashed with the presumptive power of an M-16 burst. See "America's March Toward a Military State."
  • The Senate folds on an anti-war resolution. See "Cowards."
The best of the blogosphere and more crumbs and quickies in The Daily Journal. Thanks for reading.pt
