the enemy of my enemy

An ancient Chinese proverb advises  “It is good to strike the serpent’s head with your enemy’s hand.”  Some believe the Chinese  proverb inspired the Arab proverbthe enemy of my enemy is my friend”.

These links are interesting as far as I am concerned because they are not typical for a site like this in that typical links would lead to sites posted by American, conservative, white,  heterosexual men – of which I am one.  Due to the number of typical sites I don’t think theres much value in littering my blog with more of the same unless they are particularly thought provoking.  Instead, I’m going to focus my list on thinkers of any persuasion.  Thinkers you might not normally read.  The purpose is to encourage you to open your mind to the possibility that someone with whom you vehemently disagree on some things may be someone you agree with on other things.  And in so doing, work together to defeat a common foe.

So take a chance and read something from someone you wouldn’t normally read.  You might be surprised, learn something  and perhaps be more inclusive in your thinking.

About

I’ve put this site up as a repository for my thoughts on various subjects.  Most of these entries will appear on another one of my blogs, or maybe on someone else’s.  I would love it if you would comment on the posts, dispute what is said, provide alternative views or recommend resources for learning more about the topic.  Unfortunately because of the blog-spam-weasels, comments will require my approval.  Our views will not always be calibrated (to properly use the word) and that’s ok with me – I hope it is with you too.  Those of you who know me know that I am respectful of the opinions and views of others.  You also know that I expect demand reciprocity. Relevant comments will be published regardless of the viewpoint expressed as long as they are not (in my opinion) hate-filled or libelous.  Think of this site as a salon hosted by me in my home – please be both passionate and polite.
