Dissent Is The Highest Form of Patriotism

Mark Donahue writes from Washington DC: During the eight years of the Bush administration rage engulfed the world with demonstrators declaring that America’s aggressive stance on terrorism had trampled on human rights and tarnished its image in the eyes of the rest of the world. Throughout Europe and America hundreds of thousands took to the streets to protest the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Guantanamo, the Patriot Act, rendition and military tribunals, to name just a few. The endless turbulence of dissent no doubt helped facilitate the meteoric rise of a relatively unknown Illinois Senator named Barack Obama, catapulting him at lightning speed to the upper echelons of the political spectrum. With captivating speeches of hope and change Mr Obama effortlessly swayed the adoring multitudes...
