The Power of Narrative
by Arthur Silber  
Posted in Commentary

"I don't wish to be misunderstood as saying that we cannot learn from the past or find value in understanding the forces that finally expressed themselves in action. Much of my writing here is devoted to this enterprise -- but such endeavors of mine try to confine themselves within restricted boundaries and to the task of descriptive analysis, as it were. It is a very different matter to ascribe specifically moral meaning to large-scale cultural events as events in themselves, past or present." (08/10/11)
