Reading Pat Buchanan's interview in Salon today, I was a little perturbed. He seemed to be making a lot of sense. He didn't have that far-right ting that usually came off so strong. For a moment I thought about how perhaps I, myself, was beginning to lean further to the right. Looking closer, though, I realize this isn't the case. The things where I saw agreeance were really just descriptions of the dilemmas with which we, as a nation, are being faced. Any well-informed person would probably agree with them. The disagreements did come when Buchanan started talking about solutions. The breaks were very much along his Conservatire Nationalism and my Liberal Globalism, and it made me feel much better.
The texts I picked up on Santeria were very interesting. As I was reading about making a blood sacrafice of an old, castrated goat to the God of Pestilence, I couldn't help but think that all the back-to-nature, primitive-revivalist NeoPagans are a bunch of wimps.
