Great post. Thank you, David, for writing it and Pat for putting it up.

I was particularly struck by the quote from Karl Krauss: " . . that catastrophic conflict was the product of 'a disastrous failure of the imagination and an almost deliberate refusal to envisage the inevitable consequences of words and acts...made possible above all by the corruption of language in politics and by some of the major newspapers.'" It's a dead-on description of the political and media environment in the USA today.
