5 Years ago this month on the CLR: Cultural Suicide – not always painless July 14, 2011

Posted by WorldbyStorm in The Left.

Have you visited Harry’s Place recently? I know I hadn’t for quite some time. But here’s a piece by smiffy from July 2006 which made me think about it again.

On a slight tangent when the CLR started up we had a long [and in some ways heated] discussion on our blogroll which in retrospect now seems to have been perhaps unnecessary, stuff evolves as do sites. I was pruning the blogroll recently and was surprised to see how many sites were now defunct. I’m an instinctive hoarder and was surprised to see how loath I was to jettison some of the links – sort of an hope that maybe some of them would spring back to life.
Perhaps they will.

Anyhow, I think smiffy’s post is almost like a communication from a long vanished world given all that has happened subsequently, and yet, the same issues persist one way or another.

magazine, which often has interesting articles about nonviolence
and peace, and occasionally has interviews with leftists like
Michael Albert and Noam Chomsky:
