on democracy and freedom
there is a brilliant post on the american sentimentalist discussing the supposed idea of freedom being the answer to all of mankind's problems. i've been pondering on these very lines and mark anderson seems to have hit the nail on the head with his commentary. the west's and, increasingly, america's assurance that ideals like freedom, democracy, government and a free economy as defined and studied in the west is the only possible way humankind should practice them, is in serious need of questioning by the west's philosophers and thinkers. what is pitiful is that western democracies have chosen to ignore these ideas when it suits them, think china's volume of trade in the us, and have enforced them when there are factors other than concern for fellow human beings influencing their decisions. the entire article on the sentimentalist is well worth your time.
