Secular Europe: Regis Debray

In this thought-provoking piece, Regis Debray, a former adviser to President Mitterand, essentially argues that the US has yet to mature as a political entity. I am inclined to agree about the religous zeal coming from the Bush administration. I am not sure however if you could apply that to the entire nation of America. But I have to agree with him on how Bush seems to perceive the world – in black and white.

“Old Europe” has already paid the price. It knows that the planet is too complex, too definitively plural to suffer insertion into a monotheistic binary logic: white or black, good or evil, friend or enemy.

  1. President Aristide says that Debray threatened (not warned) him with death.
    Seems that Debray has made the big switch, is now a heavy for Empire.
    It must be the duty of any revolutionary to kill him on sight
