Description :: Glen Ford and Peter Gamble, The Black Commentator, October 9, 2003
This article is interesting not so much because of its political analysis (not too much of that, actually) but because it asks the question "what should we want our nation to be?" The authors ask us to reconsider the basic priorities most of our candidates put forward with a language we now see as required: growth, trade, wealth ... Have we lost track of what it means to be human, of why we have a government in the first place, of what our material lives are worth day-to-day?
