Essential Reading From Sam Harris and Daniel Ellsberg
Posted on Sep 16, 2006
Check out these two new (unrelated) reports by men who embody the Truthdig mission of drilling beneath the headlines:
Daniel Ellsberg: “Time to Drive Out the Bush Regime”—The man who gave the world the Pentagon Papers delivers an impassioned plea to a new generation of activists to heed the lessons of Nixon and even Hitler when taking stock of the Bush administration?s nuclear ambitions.
Excerpt: “The nuclear wars in our future—that would be started by an act now being planned by this country—are Hitler-like to the hundredth degree.”
Sam Harris: “God’s Rottweiler Barks”—The bestselling author of ?The End of Faith? gives a fiery response to Pope Benedict XVI?s speech on the interplay between faith and reason.
Excerpt: ?It is ironic that a man who has just disparaged Islam as ?evil? and ?inhuman? before 250,000 onlookers and the world press is now talking about a ?genuine dialogue of cultures.? ?
