The purpose of my post today is to direct you to a page in the column on the right titled “Forgetting Reinhold Niebuhr”. I decided to create this page because Mr. Niebuhr was a powerful influence on my intellectual development, and thus he sheds some light on who I am. In fact, if you have had any ongoing conversations with me you will likely see shades of Niebuhr in things that I have said on any number of issues. Beyond how Niebuhr contributed to my becoming, I also thought this page, which is comprised mainly of an article written by Arthur Schlesinger, sheds light on the problems of Bush’s stance regarding “the war on terror.” Before you click the link, I would like to give you a brief word of warning: the page is somewhat lengthy. However, I also would like to give you a word of encouragement: the reading is well worth the time. If you have any comments, leave it on this post as I don’t think you can respond to the page.
