By the way, I think Camille Paglia and JPII are on the same wavelength
“There may be an apparent immediate victory in Iraq, but we’ll be winning the battle and losing the war. The real war is for the hearts and minds of the Islamic world.” Camille Paglia in today’s Salon interview. But that’s not terribly different from the Pope’s thought here.
We’ll win the war hands down. But we’re making no provision to win the peace so far as I can see. The only culture we have to offer is typified by that interview with Michael Jackson. Primarily our incredibly short-sighted goal as a people is to make the world safe for the morals and mind-set of the Clinton era to continue forever.
