Interconnected Waiting for the Bang [via haddock]. Beautifully written serious piece. I was having a rant about the extremists, having found my first warblog (if you don't know, don't ask. If you knew, you'd be upset) a few days ago. The question: what to do? Argue back? Ignore? This Ftrain piece was especially apt -- I've had a feeling for a while that there's a new social structure, a new philosophy being built, and every time we discuss or consider or question we're adding to it. And in ten years time or so we'll see what all these anti-globalisationists and liberals have in common; we'll be able to articulate our concerns about capitalism for the first time having created the language; we'll be able to rebuild the system.

My main distrust: Of belief systems that don't encourage being questioned.
