observations from a slightly mad german-american

Thursday, February 27, 2003

Remind me to look in the documents written by America's founding fathers on the principle of patriotism. Seems to me that the concept of patriotism espoused by right-wing radio, namely the notion that criticizing the looming US war effort in Iraq is not supportive of the country and perhaps treasonous, is very different than the notion espoused by Jefferson, Hamiton, etc.

However, I don't have time to dig into the their writings right now (sigh)...

You can, however....Download the Federalist Papers. It is not quite applicable to the current situation, but certainly provides great insight into the thinking of the Consitution's framers.
