Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

And Now They Are Dead

So, we've killed the killers in France.  And what, exactly, did they accomplish?

Islam isn't responsible for these assholes, but what is it about a world that marginalizes these Muslim men and makes them think that shooting people is a legitimate form of political expression.  We have the same problem in the country (these assholes have nothing on Timothy McVeigh).

Consistently, we are living in a world that leads some young men to think violence - especially ideological violence - is a solution to their problems.  That has to change.
