John Pilger :: Breaking the Silence

Worthwhile view. Run it while you’re doing other work and listen to the audio, which is alone worth a listen. Afghanistan has been off the radar of late and so good to re-direct some attention to the bealeagured Afghan people and the abuses perpetrated against them at the hands of the US neocons.

Good to see honest US foreign policy brokers, and others who simply squirm with Pilger’s questions. John Bolton asks Pilger first whether he’s a “Labor Party member”, then whether he’s a member of the Communist Party.

Timely Reminders

"Those who crusade, not for God in themselves, but against the devil in others, never succeed in making the world better, but leave it either as it was, or sometimes perceptibly worse than what it was, before the crusade began. By thinking primarily of evil we tend, however excellent our intentions, to create occasions for evil to manifest itself."
-- Aldous Huxley

"The only war that matters is the war against the imagination. All others are subsumed by it."
-- Diane DiPrima, "Rant", from Pieces of a Song.

"It is difficult
to get the news from poems
yet men die miserably every day
for lack
of what is found there"
-- William Carlos Williams, "Asphodel, That Greeny Flower"
