"The Prison of the Nationalist Mind"

I thought Glenn Greenwald was the master of scathing monologue, but I do believe he has met his match in Professor Juan Cole. If nothing else, the phrase he coined to use as the title of his recent piece is a real treasure, "Guarding the Prison of the Nationalist Mind." Small minds and limited thinking as a form of imprisonment; beautiful.

I'm not going to quote from it, go read it. The truth it speaks is powerful, and the craftsmanship of language is exquisite.
