Michael's Latest on Tech Central

Posted by Jeremy Brown

Check out Michael's latest column on Tech Central Station. It's an important subject that is not all over the blogs at the moment. This one's about Belgium's banning of the popular right wing political party, Vlaams Blok. Michael ties this in to the larger picture of a Europe at an uncertain crossroads, the unpopularity of discussing the growth of Islamist fundamentalism in Europe, and the dangers of a liberal society unwilling to think its way out of the false dichotomy “between left-wing fantasy and right-wing lunacy.”

Or read it and tell me how my teaser is missing the real crux of the piece. But read it.
