    The use and misuse of voices


    Archie Drury is a filmmaker who went to Iraq with 150 cameras and came back with a documentary that looks really interesting called Voices of Iraq. He was on C-span with clips and he took calls about it. The film is meant to be many views of Iraq in the words of many diverse Iraqis, and has no political opinion. It does espouse the view that the US military effort in Iraq was good for the Iraqi people.

    It was a very interesting discussion and he was respectful of all dissent while maintaining that his film was not to espouse a political view, but to show the humanity of the Iraqi people and let their voices be heard, whatever their opinion. I really came away from this with a great respect for Archie Drury.

    And to change the subject completely, there's a 5 pager on how protesting can really screw things up for people here. An interesting point of view here with some startling examples of just what happens in real life when people mobilize against something they don't understand. I don't know a thing about the author, Sebastian Mallaby but he makes some solid points. Here's what the article says:

    Sebastian Mallaby is a columnist and editorial writer for the Washington Post. This article is adapted from The World’s Banker: A Story of Failed States, Financial Crises, and the Wealth and Poverty of Nations (New York: Penguin Press, 2004).

    For Free:

    We are living for free;
    The air is for free,
    The clouds are for free.
    Hills and dales are for free;
    Rain and mud are for free;
    The outside of cars,
    The entrance to movie houses,
    The store windows are for free;
    It is not the same as bread and cheese,
    But salt water is for free;
    Freedom will cost you your life,
    But slavery is for free;
    We are living for free,
    For free.
