Work Disappeared...
I posted a long and I thought really good piece under the title Freedom Under Occupation and it is gone, disappeared, someone elses work is there. I did not post what is showing except for the beginning words "A prince who wanted to take charge of his" from an Iraqi parable. What was lost was a bunch of information and time. I did not back up my work in Blogger, but I will from now on.
This makes me pretty uncomfortable...

Read a short, well footnoted bit of history about him.

We hear about a fellow's actions but have no context often times to build a realistic analytical picture of him. Past performance is a key to understanding current events. Sports fans know this well. Oddly enough although many folks approach political life from that same "sports team" perspective a perverted sense of "in group" loyalty that eclipses reason seems to set in. Where one will for the good of the team, critique the actions of the quarterback continually calling the same non-working plays or a linesman that keeps committing fouls it is seen by some to be disloyal to do the same concerning the players in crucial to life issues of statescraft.
I just don't understand that. See it and hear it regularly but just don't get it.
