    Us outside the "Charmed Circle". Baby/bathwater metaphor.
    I hate being hectored. It makes me......ungenerous.

    Anyhoo the slow insidious descent, of those who happen to be in positions of authority toward regarding themselves as some form of modern day royalty, and are somehow separate from the rest of humanity and can bend the rules a little when it suits them, has been very shoddily hidden. It's as if these beings thought they lived charmed existences themselves, and no one would question their right to do as they saw fit. Because their cause -they professed- was for the good of humankind. And communist leaders thought this as well. Hell everyone likes to think their cause is noble, even when its not.

    We don't have to join the adoring masses, but we certainly shouldn't be lending our weight to those who want to keep dark corners dark.

    You can drop the royal "we" when expressing personal opinion, you know.

    Reading through Clinton’s embassy briefing for her visit I thought it was accurate, measured and detailed. But sort of long and probably just one of the many briefings she has to read each day.

    I feel curiously unmoved to sympathy.

    Imagine what her boss Obama has to wade through. How on earth does one come to any understanding of what is really going on.

    No understanding comes pretty easily I'd imagine. Its negotiating the mass of expectation around, well, just about anything nowadays which "muddies the waters" so to speak.

    Or maybe people with good judgement can cut through and make good decisions.

    Or not.

    And, of course, there are the critical stories that literally won’t go away: how will the news media handle climate change?

    You mean other that scaring the crap outta people with disaster pawn. I'd like to know that too.

    Oh Fun a right whinger Hi James B

    but at the risk of stating the obvious, most of those voices inside or outside the US inherently most suspicious and critical of the USA are of the left.

    All those fundamentalist muslims will be very upset with you for dismissing them so.
    But then its not numerical superiority you're after izeet.

    many and varied lefties like Moore, Danny Glover, Oliver Stone, Sean Penn etc

    Name dropper!
