Default Interesting Comparison

The Cowliphate and Poisoned Kids: Twin Assaults on The Commons

I can't really describe this piece. It comes from a really serious activist. So serious that I have a hard time dealing with his wide-ranging vehemence. I personally know people who are similarly "activated", though with somewhat different foci.

I would normally provide an excerpt, but I can't see how to make it representative. This piece does, however, pursue an interesting comparison, within the the framing of "The Commons."
EDIT: I actually mostly agree with the author, but he sure is "In-Your-Face."

The Fund for Peace characterizes a failed state as having the following characteristics:
  • Loss of control of its territory, or of the monopoly on the legitimate use of physical force therein
  • Erosion of legitimate authority to make collective decisions
  • Inability to provide public services
  • Inability to interact with other states as a full member of the international community
Amazing how parts of the United States now resemble a failed state.

Don't you know? Anyone who dies by Hellfire missile is, by definition, a terrorist, an insurgent, or a militant, regardless of age, gender, or ideological leanings.

Any professional counsellor will tell him that counselling starts with the client's point of view and works things from there. The therapist's religious views are irrelevant.
