Big Stick Diplomacy

President T.R. Roosevelt is quoted as having said, “Speak softly and carry a big stick”.  Don’t you just love those easy clever witticisms?  Bumper sticker diplomacy at its finest.  Wit is not the same as wisdom.  Clever is not the same as wisdom.  Wisdom speaks softly and carries a big stick – and carries the […]

Government by Terror

Son, Fear must not choose a President. That was the title of an earlier post. I have pondered this axiom of righteousness and find it wanting. There is more than fear. Our candidates harp on the politics of fear, on the use of fear to garner votes from weary political practitioners. But fear does not […]
