"... the rot that has eaten away at the rich world's 'left'"

From another fine piece by Terry Glavin, ...A Corrosive, Reactionary Parochialism On 'The Left':
... It's my own view that on the so-called "anti-imperialist" left, the truly progressive heart had already stopped beating at least a decade ago. True enough, the zombies have been stumbling around for much longer than that.

... The thing about the contemporary iterations of that decadence that gets at me like fingernails scratching on a blackboard is its cynical disregard for the bravery of hundreds of thousands of Afghans, especially, who every day take greater risks and make greater sacrifices in the struggle for the rule of law, free speech, womens rights and civil liberties than any of the rich-kid "anti-imperialists" have undertaken in their entire lives. ...
Great writing.  It's easy to see why the Gaza flotilla (ie. Hamas) sponsoring loons at rabble.ca so hate Terry's guts.
