Re: An Important Note to Our Valued Commenters from Bob

Enterprises. The Atlantic gig and the foundation founding. The key to understanding what's going on here is to study the interaction between the two. "Synergies" between the for-profit world...

Missing link, lifeline, extinction, etc.

This universe will evanesce without some life support from the mother planet.

We need a link from the Bheads homepage that will say something like, "More Bheads community discussion on...

Re: What should we disqus here?

Right. In the diavlog posted today that we're not allowed to disqus here, Matt and Bill also raise the question of what does Paul really hope to attain. I think Matt pretty much covered it: short...

Re: What should we disqus here?

Well, we'll see how it all plays out.

But that line of economic concessions doesn't really excite Paul supporters, as far as I can tell. The Party already panders to Paul on domestic economic...

Re: An Important Note to Our Valued Commenters from Bob

Agree. It's disempowering for commenters. There's no way to put lipstick on that pig.



I don't see how it's a business error. It's a decision to the detriment of the existing commenting...

Re: What should we disqus here?

Well, that's encouraging.

I think Paul has run a brilliant campaign so far. He stays on message no matter what, and he's got the Republican establishment right where he wants them. They would...

What should we disqus here?

We still have opportunities for community discussions here. The only ground rule, as I understand it, is that we don't start or continue comments based on the diavlogs themselves.

Any ideas on...

Re: An apparition is stalking America

I have to admit that the "we/us" you express above is not something that I feel deeply. I know that a lot of people like Rfrobison resent that lack of national identity in liberals, and he may have a...

Re: An apparition is stalking America

Yes, I think Bob got it right that our tendency toward exceptionalism (a form of narcissism/xenophobia/ethnocentrism) is precisely the force that suppresses our ability to take the perspective...

Re: An apparition is stalking America

No need to apologize. You made some good points.

Among the views that you expressed, however, that I'd most distance myself from is that the USA is the most contemptible among nations. I...

Re: An apparition is stalking America

It's all part of the vast right-wing Reaganistic delusion that the US is a) the greatest country in the history of the world b) vulnerable to losing that status because of misguided Democrat...

Re: Chickenhawkery

It's coarse language, but I don't think it's demonizing. It's not like randomly calling someone a retard or a Nazi.

Paul is raising a fair question about a generation of men who did everything...

Re: Kudos to Bob for setting the record straight on his hero, Ron Paul

No, I don't think so.

If Iran were to say to Israel, for example, "You can't have any nukes, and if we detect the evidence of any in your territory, we will bomb you," you'd probably agree that...

Re: Kudos to Bob for setting the record straight on his hero, Ron Paul

It's consistent. Imagine you're in high school and most of the gang kids have guns and are affiliated with either the Cripps or Bloods. You go to the Cripps head gangster and say, "I need a gun to be...

Re: Kudos to Bob for setting the record straight on his hero, Ron Paul

Why should "we" do this? "We" are not in charge of the world. There is no sane reason for anyone to possess nuclear weapons.

The only way out of the nuclear dilemma is universal disarmament.

Re: Kudos to Bob for setting the record straight on his hero, Ron Paul

Why is Iran any more dangerous with regard to loose nukes than Pakistan or North Korea? I'm against all nuclear proliferation, but I see no reason to single out Iran and to issue belligerent...

Re: Kudos to Bob for setting the record straight on his hero, Ron Paul

You are speculating just as much as I am, except your speculation leads you to resign yourself to embrace the military industrial complex status quo. I am more hopeful that a bipartisan peace...

Re: Kudos to Bob for setting the record straight on his hero, Ron Paul

I'm in a huury now so cannot answer fully, but I'll just say that people who develop strong pro-peace convictions early in their political lives are likely to sustain them till the day they die...
