In view of the artillery duel in Korea, I liked the thoughts of I Want A New Left.
I’ve thought that it was very easy to be an “alternative” journalist (columnist, commentator, what have you) for all one has to do is second-guess and criticise what the administration/power structure/mayor, fill in the blank was doing. It’s really easy to sit back and nit pick. actually doing something constructive, now, that’s a whole other matter.
But I think it is a valid question, is one anti-war or just anti-going-to-war-yourself? Non-violent protest is all well and good, if you are dealing with an adversary with a conscience. If your adversary just doesn’t care, one needs must look to one’s weapons.
