Week 5 – “Desiring War” Runions

October 28, 2007

The idea that freedom is a commodity (114) as presented in this article echoes much of the criticism directed at the Bush administration. What I mean is, this is not new information. It is still worth considering what is implicitly expected from other countries in exchange for American involvement. Freedom, at least the American ideal, is virtually unattainable in any tangible sense, even in America. People’s rights are stepped on every day, and those too poor and marginalized to do anything about it just suffer wherever they are. Freedom is a wonderful concept, but without the support to back up the ideal, freedom is just another brand of wool to pull over the eyes. Man, I am cynical today.
