Comments: The New Liberal Vision


I started to post a comment here, and it kept growing and growing. I finally copied it out, cleaned it up and posted it at Cliopatria:

I really didn't need to do "the vision thing" today, but you gotta think when the spirit says think, write when the spirit says write.....

I like a lot about your post. I also got a huge laugh out of this sentence, which I assume is simply mis-written: "What should our role be in helping combat disease, poverty, and human rights around the world?" Yes, let's do all we can to eradicate disease, poverty, and human rights!

Anne, thanks for thinking about the new issues you list in #3. I think when Jeff talked us into this he was hoping to hear new ideas, and you've done well by listing what will probably be big issues in the future.

Yay Anne! Great post. Totally puts mine to shame, as I expected. :)

Jonathan, it was my hope, when I posted this, that more intelligent people :) would want to write on the subject themselves. Thanks for the link and I'll comment on your post over on Cliopatria.

Lawrence, that was the kind of structural mistake that makes me weep for my wasted education when I see it. :) I'll go back and fix it and I do appreciate the heads-up.

Elayne - I disagree. I liked your post. What I found really interesting was how different the posts were from each participant. Much food for thought in all of them.
