A brilliant read

My friend Aunti Que, recommended this blogsite to me, it's by a young man named Jonathan. His insights and depth of perception are fantastic and compelling. Check it out. A sample from his post, 'Here or There,' on why he has chosen to become a pasificst,

the violence which we condemn and the violence which is acclaimed, sanctioned, even idolized here in America, the "righteous violence" either of our ancestors or our foreign policy today is, when it all boils down to it, largely the same thing. The only difference is that, in the one case, those perpetrating the violence are on the side that our cultural metanarrative has deemed "good" and in the other case, the perpetrators are on the side we've deemed "evil". And the primary factors in determining this isn't any transcendent value but simply race and geographical location.
