Behind the love/hate relationship of China and the U.S.
16 Oct 2006
A zealous distrust of China is something most American’s learn at an early age. The lessons include stunning visuals of atrocities, complete with attacks on helpless Tibetan monks and nuns, fearless democracy-seeking students staring down advancing tanks, and innumerable horrors of life within the totalitarian ‘communist’ society (yes they are still calling themselves that, and yes our government still clings to the word— as an abusive epithet— in a McCarthy-like attempt to browbeat). China cannot be defended if one is on the side of democracy, equality, and freedom, but neither can many of the US’ allies, past and present, who’ve had similar records (the US itself is looking more and more like China every day). Because China is outside the domain of US dominance, it is viewed as a competitor, and a threat; therefore, Chinese human-rights violations are a god-send for the White House PR staff, who look for any reason to conjure fear and create misgivings towards a country who, for purely economic reasons, is the prime candidate to face the US in World War III.

Uncovering the Judas Goats with Michael Collins Piper
15 Oct 2006
Having just finished reading Michael Collins Piper’s latest book The Judas Goats, I am once again amazed by his insightful analysis of what is truly one of the greatest problems facing the world today and that is the misunderstanding of nationalism and what that means for the future of mankind.

The Hopelessness and irrelevance of Modern Atheism
15 Oct 2006
Atheists don’t really bother me, at least not for the obvious reason, i.e. they claim there is no God. I personally believe in a God of my own understanding, but I don’t expect others to share my views on the matter, nor do I care if they do.
