Anti-Imperialism From The Right
I must confess and say that I had never heard of Professor Michael S. Rozeff until a few minutes ago. I followed a rather convoluted chain and found his archive at the Lew Rockwell site.

His Malevolent Hegemony essay is probably the best critique of imperialism that I have read in a long, long time. Furthermore, and let the left eat its heart out, he is not a socialist. No socialist could write that "history is made by individual decisions and acts," it's just not the way that we see the World.

However, the basic argument that the author presents is one that both left, right and centre could agree on. This is what we need more of: a coming together of all sides to oppose this war against Iraq. We must leave our ghetto and stop pretending that only old socialists can object to the new imperialism.

I am not going to post extracts from the essay - it should be read and savoured in its entirety.

Problem is, Rozeff is a Jewish name if ever I heard one. How can anyone pay attention to him?

No bugger's biting, mate. Sorry about that. Better luck next time.
