Carnival of the Liberals #39

Well, it’s been a while…. since I hosted the CotL #3 about a year and a half ago. It’s ripe time to do it again. Not that it was ever easy to choose ten best written and most creative posts out of dozens of great entries! I spent the last few days agonizing and wishing I could include 20 or 30 or 40…but rules are rules, so here it goes, the brand new Carnival of the Liberals:

The Ridger of The Greenbelt digs for deeper causes in Not slavery – abolition:

Upsetting tyrants is noble, isn’t it?

Charles H. Green knows that Trust Matters and right now you should trust me that his post is well worth your time to read: Does Business Squeeze the Poor?:

Their arguments have the sound of 18th century English political theorists writing about natural law.

(Th)read carefully when Hell’s handmaiden goes subversively satirical before turning deadly serious: Guns and killin? And knives and garden tools, cars, rat poison?

Even good, well adjusted, happy people can be volatile sometimes.

Dave of Daveawayfromhome has a nine-point plan for Iraq. You may not agree with each point, but it will surely make you think (out of the box): My baby’s nation wont return my calls, redux:

The Iraqis are not a bunch of children.

GreenSmile of The Executioners Thong has a radical idea: Strangers in a strange land:

Only adults should ever study such dangerous stuff.

Faith of the gorgeous That is so Queer… blog wrote a post in two parts, one going in, the other pulling out (yes, you have to learn in slow, easy steps): Logic…or, ‘Hello? Is this thing on?’ and Oh no they didn’t:

Essentially it’s about the big abstinence pull-out…

Zeno is almost Halfway There, or, actually was 100% there in 1980 when the story takes place: Farewell to Falwell:

He pulled all of our strings simultaneously, carrying the unwilling along with the perfervid true believers.

Romeo Vitelli of Providentia provides a lesson in history: Becoming Lili:

The resulting furor when this reached the media was all that could be expected.

Steppen Wolf is The skeptical alchemist and she shows how everything is interconnected in, well, every country in the world. Perhaps a look at Italy can help jumpstart some inquiries closer to home, wherever that may be: Map of power in the Country of Jokes:

No, it is not going to be cheesy: it is going to be scary.

Now we can finally understand the root causes of all of Jon Swift’s problems: My Mother Is a Terrible Person:

Thank goodness my father made an honest woman out of her and saved me from being a bastard.

    Hi Bora,

    Thanks for including my post on the Country of Jokes – I wish we could draw a map like that for any country in the world, because I get a feeling that we would very much see the same thing. And I do not want to make a big deal out of it, but I guess I really am a ‘she’, not a ‘he’ :)

    Take care,

    steppen wolf
