The collapsing US military & economic empire is making Washington & NATO even more dangerous. US could not beat the Taliban but thinks it can take on China-Russia-Iran...a sign of psychopathology for sure. We must all do more to help stop this western corporate arrogance that puts the future generations lives in despair. @BruceKGagnon

Pope Speech to U.S. Congress

The Pope's choice of the four Americans to honor was impressive. Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King Jr, Dorothy Day and Thomas Merton are all great heroes in the long struggle for peace, justice, equality and true liberty in this country.

I saw a few of the politicians turning to one another when Francis mentioned Thomas Merton - it looked like they didn't know who he was. At the least his mentioning of these four will likely increase the interest in their lives and work which can only be a plus.
