In which our plucky young hero finds a new title.
I think this is the best editorial that the Guardian has ever published, even given its somewhat unfortunate but-what-of-Israel? conclusion. My favorite 'graf:
"Hard-headed liberals have no problem in opposing the Taliban, Bin Laden and equivocators who start with a cursory side-of-the-cigarette-pack homily that says September 11 was atrocious before piling on the 'buts' that imply the US had it coming. Hard liberals have always been very tough on the moral failings of the USA at home and abroad - without blurring distinctions between the Taliban and America. Hard liberals hold basic human rights to be non-negotiable and worth fighting for. They do not turn the other cheek, understand the other guy's point of view or respect his culture when it comes to universal rights. Promoting liberal values everywhere from Burma to Saudi Arabia, Iraq to Chechnya is not neo-colonialism, but respect for a universal right to freedom from oppression."
Hard liberal. I like it. I think I may use it.(Browse: previous or next. Notes: post or read.)
