Remember, remember 11 September
When madness and malice took wing
Face darkness and fear
With this memory clear
And everywhere let Freedom ring!
(about these lines)
On September 11, 2001, the West was alerted to ignored if not unknown threats to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. This prompted a great outpouring of sentiment, some of it wise, some of it intemperate.
With the attack on Charlie Hebdo, this new world is no longer so new. It is simply the world we live in. And so the fight for freedom goes on, even as our politicians seek to consolidate power and constrain freedom in the name of our peoples.
The wisdom and intemperance that here appeared are now gone, this statement remaining. If you´re really curious, you can find what I have written on the wayback machine, I´m sure. However, I´m no longer paying hosting fees to keep it up.
