Chris Hedges Is At It Again With Another Excellent Column.


I must admit that I have been fascinated by the writings of  Chris Hedges. Therefore, I have always looked forward to read what he writes, whether in the books he writes or the columns he posts every Monday on Truthdig's website.

I have just finished reading his latest column, entitled :

" What Is Happening to Muslims Will Happen to the Rest of Us ", dated October 1, 2012.

In the above column of his, Heddges  is adhering firmly to the moral high ground, in connection to violation of the U.S. Constitution and justice system and one of the most cherished American ideals : innocent until proven guilty by a legitimate Court of Law.

I highly recommend to the readers of this website to take their time and read Chris Hedges' column specified as quoted above, at the following website :

www.truthdig.com

Happy reading...........

    I read the article at Truthdig Website. I disagree with Hedges. The security of America comes first of anything else,including some of America well known ideals.

    1. RTLH,

      It is certainly your prerogative to disagree.

      Perhaps, you may abandon your disagreement with Hedges when the government comes after you and throw you in prison for years, without a fair trial and without even allow you to see a lawyer for your defense in a Court of Law.

      It seems to me that you have missed the essence of what Hedges has tried to convey to his readers. Please read the column again and think it over. You may change your mind.

      Benjamin Franklin once said: "those who prefer security over freedom deserve neither." These words are not the exact words of Franklin,but close enough.

      At any rate,thank you for your comment.
