Peter M Howard ::

more Centrists

04Dec2004 [myth]

Been reading the last couple of months on William Gibson's blog - looks like he returned in time for the US elections.

Best quote so far:

"I am, as far as I can tell, more or less a centrist, equally repelled by either extreme of the political spectrum. Indeed, I believe that the spectrum forms a full circle, with right and left merging, as they meet at their respective extremes, into luminous batshit evil."

Also found quoted there:

"I call on every man and woman of good will all over America today ... to take a stand on this issue. Tomorrow may be too late. The book may close. Don't let anyone make you think that God chose America as his divine messianic force, to be a sort of policeman of the whole world. God has a way of standing before the nations with judgement, and it seems that I can hear God saying to America 'You are too arrogant! If you don't change your ways, I will rise up and break the backbone of your power! And I will place it in the hands of a nation that doesn't even know my name. Be still and know that I am God.'"

-- Martin Luther King, 4 April 1967
