Pragmatic Self Preservationist

Bono promotes the pragmatic self-preservationist dogma I’ve discussed here many times.

On fighting diseases in Africa: “It’s cheaper than fighting wave after wave of the terrorists’ new recruits.”

Hey, aside from violence (which is often justified and necessary), what is our strategy in the war on terror? The phrase

war on terror” should give you some idea about the breadth and scope of the plan.

We just may have picked the wrong age for shallow stupidity.


Concentration is important!
