http://www.speakingoffaith.org ……… This is an excellent website. Please spend some time there. It has been expanding my own inner dialogue. It does involve theological issues and faith but it is intelligent and inclusive and tolerant of numerous viewpoints. Chris Hedges, author of War is a Force that Gives us Meaning, New York Times journalist, and veteran war correspondent speaks that if there is another terrorist attack in the United States, specifically anti-Arab sentiments will be the anti-semitic syndrome. He also stated that everyone he has interviewed in his work has said there will be another large scale attack. There is an insightful discussion of the “GOOD VS EVIL ” lingo/syndrome bantered about lately by various officials and public speakers in this segment with Mr Hedges as well.


“For evil is man’s best strength. Man must become better and more evil. Thus I teach. The greatest evil is necessary for the overman’s best. It may have been good for that preacher of the little people that he suffered and tried to bear man’s sin. But I rejoice over great sin as my great consolation. But this is not said for long ears. Not every word belongs in every mouth. These are delicate distant matters: they should not be reached for by sheeps’ hoofs.” – Thus Spoke Zarathustra…. Nietzsche

……….. It is raining tonight. I am doing laundry. The clicking sound of the old dryer comforts me. I can almost hear my mother busying herself in the laundry room when I hear this sound…..
