A Word to Islamic Reactionaries: Practice Equanimity!!
 The Muslim world erupted over a movie that denigrated the prophet Mohammed:  Every peace-loving individual in the world ought to denounce this daft and disconcerting movie, and they must do so emphatically with a degree of discomfiture, because we expect people’s love for God or their religion to be impregnable. But the violence perpetrated in ...

By Daniel McKay

Sean Hannity Hates Democracy!
Hannity “I like democracy, except when I don’t like it” – Okay… well that’s pretty much what he said.

Do the presidential elections matter?

By Daniel McKay
Do the presidential elections matter?
Do the presidential elections matter? Is this truly an election that will shape the future of America? Or will realpolitik always be the victor of elections? We have seen the attacks by Romney on Obama for his handling of the violent protests against the US embassies around the Muslim world. Many Republicans scorned Obama for making the ...

Democracy cannot be EXPORTED

By Daniel McKay
Democracy cannot be EXPORTED
The King is Dead, long live the King… Democracy cannot be EXPORTED!!! It needs time to nourish and grow… It is astonishing to me that the media and the populous are calling Libya and Egypt DEMOCRACIES. These countries did not magically transform into democracies. The institutions that have been put in place by a dictator did not dissapear over ...
