New Blogs for Your Review

I've added a couple of new blogs to our "Other Side of the Blogosphere" that I hope you will find insightful. I'm a firm believer in hearing the other side, while we're not yet shooting at each other.

First up is Once Upon a Time, by Authur Silber. I don't agree with a lot of his blog but he hits the nail on the head with this post.

The resistance of the ruling class and of most Americans to one aspect of the truth about 9/11 remains astonishing, and it demonstrates how puerile our national conversation is. Of course, the ruling class cannot admit that to state the obvious fact that actions have consequences is not to say that the U.S. "deserved" 9/11 -- for to acknowledge the millions murdered by the U.S. government and our policy of aggressive military intervention across the globe would subject our own actions to the kinds of judgments that only the United States is entitled to make, and only about the actions of others. The United States is uniquely exempt from the standards we apply to everyone else; thus runs the catechism at the church of our inherent national superiority.


Our national catechism tells us that America is Good -- and that America's murders are Good Murders. You may not say otherwise.

Next is Black Agenda Report the journal of African American political thought and action. Seems pretty good.

That's it for now, if you have any blogs or links you'd like to see here, let me know.
