A truly great post on one Englishman's political growth in the wake of the Subway Bombings, 9/11, and some time in America. Though I came to where I am from a different starting point than he did, I relate entirely to his sympathies and ultimate disenchantment with the whole "America is the root of all evil" wing of the left. In seeing all the things we do and have done wrong in the world and at home, it is easy to forget the good we've done as well. The difficulty is in criticizing without forgetting the big picture. It's a tough line to toe--lord knows I've missed it plenty.
Anyway, read. And thanks to Sullivan for the link.
