Kristof and Brooks again
Taxes, papers, nightshifts and oral exams on the horizon, so little time to theorize (except about Aeschylus and Locke.) But today's NY Times brings my guys to the online front-page again. Kristof notes how our tolerance of genocide and governmental starvation in countries run by blacks, when we would never tolerate it in a white colonial government, is a form of racism. Brooks muses on the preferability of broad understanding of cultures and history to objectivized and systematized analytical systems in intelligence work.
