This blog started out as a companion piece to my book, Musings from the Christian Left (excerpts of which can be found in the July 2004 link) and to support a planned radio show. Now, its simply a long term writing project from a Christian Left Libertarian perspective (meaning I often argue for liberty within the (Catholic) Church, rather than liberty because the church takes care of a conservative view of morality.

"Stand Your Ground" & the Culture of Death | National Catholic Reporter

"Stand Your Ground" & the Culture of Death | National Catholic Reporter  MSW.  MGB: This is not a culture of death thing or even a whacko gun culture thing.  This is about racism, pure and simple.  The State of Florida seethes with it.  To the extent that eugenics against African Americans is part of a culture of death, I can go along with the explanation - but it is still about race and southern whites wanting to keep blacks (and now Latinos) in line - as well as making poor whites comfortable in an economic system where they comply with the economics of their betters.  God forbid that they seek solidarity with poor people of all races to seek economic justice. Hence the NRA and other racist tools.

BTW, its not the NRA, its the American Legislative Excange Council - a Koch Bros. funded group, that pushes these laws. Coincidence? I think not.
