Reviews and Observations from a freelance resident of Sin City
How much inhumanity does your ideology allow?
As I get older, I get less & less tolerant of the excuse of pragmatism for inhumane actions.
There's all of us.
Then there's each of us.
Then there's everything else,
in that order.
Stupidity & brutality are never news.
They are weather.
They happen everywhere, all the time, differing only in local circumstance.
Truth & love are the bedrock values of any ideology worth a damn.
They are my core values.
By truth, I mean reality as it is, not as I wish it to be.
By love, I mean the selfless regard by which we must interact & cooperate.
Clinton Romesha's The Red Platoon is one of the best books I've read in a long while.
