Selected Reading

This morning, a friend emailed to remind me that it’s been four days since I posted anything, which in internet time is equivalent to about a month and obviously something to be slightly ashamed of. Anyway, not sure how consistent the posting will be this week, but I can manage a few links:

  • In a lengthy essay at TPM, Jim Sleeper asks ‘Is Israel Dysfunctional?’ and ponders the psychology of both sides’ supporters.
  • At Echidne of the Snakes, Anthony McCarthy argues that the left cannot afford to clam up over Israel-Palestine.
  • In the Indy, Robert Fisk is sick of the same tired Middle East comparisons.
  • Also related to the Gaza conflict, Keith Kahn-Harris and David Hayes write about internet squabbling and the politics of ME, ME, ME
  • Where now for the economy? Willem Buiter ponders the case for printing more money.
  • Over at The F Word, Abby O’Reilly has a lengthy, thought-provoking piece on sexual bullying in the playground
  • In The Atlantic Monthly, Ta-Nehisi Coates has a lovely essay on Michelle Obama.
  • Foreign Policy magazine’s ‘Shadow Government’ have 47 questions they want to ask Hillary Clinton at her confirmation hearing.
  • And Jackie Ashley has some advice for the Tories. God help them.
