David Brin Speaks about US Politics

David Brin, author of the uplift books, has posted a 'political salvo' It's a pretty balanced piece which looks at the successes and failures of recent years of US intervention, both in the current and in the previous administrations.

He has a nice series of articles there, including Honouring the Losing Majority and Militant Moderation, there are also some short pieces such as Left and Right Dogmas (my own views are part 'left' and part 'right', so this last piece makes a great deal of sense to me).

The suggestion in Honouring the Losing Majority is a particularly excellent one.
