Politically Incorrect with Ben Edwards

I linked to an article at Salon a couple days ago and just reread it again today.

It comments on how we need to have a democratic approach now more than ever and that the country should have consensus-building through dialog and not through the government and media telling the public how they should feel about the events of Sept. 11 and about what needs to be done now. Here is a quote from the end of the article that I find to be true.

    In the end, it won’t be military superiority that determines the outcome of this war. As our implacable fundamentalist foes have told the world, this is a war of values. We cannot win by sacrificing ours. If democracy and freedom are to win over the forces of terror and theocracy, they first must flourish at home. – David Talbot, Salon
