Excellent Moral Analysis

My father sent me an e-mail pointing out this article by Stefan Beck. Please read the whole thing. It is an outstanding philosophically informed piece which ties an important concept of personal virtue into our domestic politics, and into the situation in Iraq. It is precisely this sort of analysis and way of looking at things that inspires the slogan I've placed below my blog title. Yes, the article is "anti-Kerry", but it illustrates the relationship between personal morality and global geopolitics. Subduing the barbarians "outside the gate" does indeed start with subduing the "barbarian in the mirror".
