There was always a peculiar insistence on categorizing Syria with an asterisk, separating it from other revolts in the region. It has been impugned or obscured by a narrative that would never grant it the basic concession that any domestic insurrection against a despot should be encouraged.

Spain is a country of Suckers because our political leaders have become Suckers. They are no longer necessary and have become an extractive, fat and inefficient ruling elite. It is time to cut the fat and become lean.

Far from being just another distraction or way to be entertained by violence, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire delivers a message of hope into our culture which just like Panem desperately needs to find freedom from our own oppressions and injustices.

Health isn't built in hospitals; disease is treated there. Health is built every day, over the course of a lifetime, in the places we work, and learn, and play, and pray, and love, and live. Or it isn't. And if it isn't, the "health care" system can't fix it.
