Old Socialist resorts to minimalism!

Headline: How Earthquakes Test Our Souls and Our Governments

I’ll not waste much time on Neo-Con Ghoul Bret Stephens selective compassion: the last two paragraphs are enough melodrama, in which he plays the Lead Role.

Even in the age of Ukraine and other disasters, can we still muster a sustained sense of charity and compassion to help, intelligently, in the long recovery that lies ahead?

Around noon on that September day in 1985, my mother came to my school and took me home to my dad’s embrace. To this day I think about how very lucky we were, and ache for so many who were not.

About stephenkmacksd

Rootless cosmopolitan,down at heels intellectual;would be writer. 'Polemic is a discourse of conflict, whose effect depends on a delicate balance between the requirements of truth and the enticements of anger, the duty to argue and the zest to inflame. Its rhetoric allows, even enforces, a certain figurative licence. Like epitaphs in Johnson’s adage, it is not under oath.' https://www.lrb.co.uk/v15/n20/perry-anderson/diary
