…After a day of newspaper work, I come home full of so much bureaucracy, theory, policy-making, applied tactical warfare…
More NATO troops heading for Afghanistan so that they can all come home. Imposed « democratic » elections in Iraq, where there is ever-more sectarian violence. Science proving this or that, studying the effects of meditation on the brain. Why? Isn’t it clear how it effects being?
Curious about a film about soldiers in Iraq made by a woman and on which Hollywood bestows its coveted laurels (a little like science confirming the effects of meditation on the brain; art needs no such approbation except as a profit motive). Curious about the title, « The Hurt Locker. » I will go see for myself.
Experience is the only way to not-know it.
