Quote of the week

Now you cannot understand anything about fascist doctrine if you do not understand that their central claim was that liberalism is antidemocratic; in other words, the fascists claimed that liberal institutions cannot represent the will of the people. They further claimed that their typical institutions, particularly the party, were more effective means to represent the will of the people. So fascists were “authoritarian democrats.”

Wish I was there…..

Yesterday 80 000 people turned out for a Barack Obama rally in Portland Oregan. This picture pretty much sums it up. I know if he is elected he will not necessarily change US foreign policy that dramatically and that he will still act in the interest of the US and not the rest of us. But still, I am rooting for him all the way because for a politician he seems remarkably honest and reflexive.
