What Price Freedom?

It took me almost a week, but I did get around to reading Michael Ignatieff’s essay on Jefferson’s dream of spreading democracy to the rest of the world and how its playing out in the world we all live in.

It’s a good piece and lays out the historical context for the issues we are facing today in Iraq and beyond.

Cetainly all of you who commented passionately on my VC of the Week post this week should take the time to read this.

Ignatieff doesn’t come out on either side of the debate and points out that America is having a hard time with the issue.

Me too.
