Posted to Poetry and Politics

Passing this snippet along from a fellow "anti-war liberal":

"one of the great things about being left-wing in the US is the sure knowledge that your views are completely irrelevant to those in power. it gives one a feeling of airy, ephemeral nothingness. sartresque. especially when combined with this existential nausea."

War inna Babylon, voices extinguished by the clamor of patriotism and the din of cruise missiles.
