This is my first post on WordPress. The name of this blog is the New Centrist. Why the New Centrist? I used to be much more radical in my younger years and have recently moved towards the center. This is due to a variety of things including growing older, being open to methodological and theoretical approaches that challenged my anarchist vision of the world, and coming to terms with the terrrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. For more information go here.
In the coming weeks expect posts on a wide variety of topics from history and politics to art and food. As a signatory to the Euston Manifesto and American Statement the global struggle to promote democracy and defeat totalitarianism is a primary personal and political concern. I hope you enjoy what you find here and feel free to post comments. Comments deemed offensive will be removed but disagreement is always welcome.
