New to blogging, I can already tell readers will prove to be the most astute editors.
A former colleague is disappointed by my “Brown-Eyed Blame” blog (posted March 30.) In his view, ”complex problems of development and governance are radically oversimplified” as I attempt to refute Lula’s proposition “by substituting a superficially similar” one. (He also detects the “vile” stench of imperialism. Ouch!)
That Lula uttered (yet more) knee-jerk populist pablum is no excuse for any lack of rigor on my part. That said, one would like the world’s leaders to bring a bit more intellectual curiosity and reflection to the table at a time of true crisis.
