I have a mailbox full of emails pointing out interesting articles. Because weekends are heavy-duty family time, making blogging difficult, I don’t have the time to give each of these articles its due. However, I did want to make sure to pass on to you a few wonderful finds. These first three came to me courtesy of regular commentor Danny Lemieux:
Here’s an op-ed discussing the fact that, while Tony Blair is an admirable man in so many ways, the Britain he’ll leave behind shows the truth of the saying that the road to Hell is paved with good intentions.
At Gates of Vienna, Baron Bodissey reprints in its entirety a Paul Weston article questioning the sanity of modern liberals. More to the point, he argues that classic liberalism (of the type in which I’ve believed my entire adult life), has been supplanted by a PC Liberalism that has much more in common with totalitarianism than the classic ideal. I consider this a must read article so, please, read it!
John McWhorter optimistically thinks that, while PC whites may still be mired in stereotypes that infantilize blacks, blacks themselves are broadening their views about race in America, and doing so in positive ways. This last article ties in nicely with a Burt Prelutsky article about black-on-black racism in America. (h/t Kevin.)
