POSTED BY DORIAN (Moe notes: Newbies may not know that Dorian was an original co-blogger here who got busy with something he calls ‘a life’. Dorian is young, a musician, a sound designer, newly in love and a wonderful friend. Nice to see him back. To see previous Dorian posts, scroll down to Dorian’s Two Cents in Categories.)
A few random musings: 1) Entering negotiations with the intention not to negotiate is a form of rhetorical terrorism. 2) There’s a reason peaceful protests actually work: A large, angry human mob explicitly not causing mayhem is comparatively rare.
On Public Schools: A democracy can and should be judged by the state of its public schools. (You’re going to Kid Congress every day, not to mention all that mandatory dealing-with-the-people-you-hate training. )
ALSO: Libyans on Hallucinogens would be a good 4th album title.
