A page of links
I am in the process of constructing several pages of links; the first is dedicated to the thesis that ISIS IS US, the most controversial of those I have put forth. This page will be followed by others dedicated to other controversial themes that enter my blogposts and news summaries more by way of assumption than argument. Blogposts must deal with the week’s events, and I have only tried to give a slight suggestion of the background to some of these issues with a few links. Unlike footnotes in academic literature, which is meant to point comprehensively to a battery of evidence and so may refer to a dozen or more sources at a time, hyperlinks can only embed a single link, as far as I know. Therefore, my links are meant to be followed up – not used as “foundations”; they are ‘portals’ to dimensions of reality that are quite foreign for some of my readers, so responses indicate, they are not “building blocks” of an ideology, but only the “brick” that comes to hand in my often angry arguments.
The first theme page of links, “ISIS IS US” relates to several broader contexts of US foreign policy in the 21st century, mostly as it relates to the Middle East. This is NOT meant to be exhaustive, rather ‘suggestive’; again, the links are but a sampling but should introduce the subject quite well. Most links are to articles or videos, which is perhaps the best way to get into this material. In a separate page I will list important books for the study of US Empire and its Discontents.
The second theme page, Great Books, links for the present to Amazon.
