Le pagine di "Guerra è pace" sono dedicate agli ultimi eventi che hanno sconvolto il mondo intero: l'attacco dell'11 settembre alle Twin Towers di New York e la risposta americana del 7 ottobre. La sua voce forte, polemica, piena di rabbia ma anche di compassione per le vittime, di qualunque bandiera e religione, si leva anche per condannare in modo lucido e documentato i rischi della globalizzazione dell'economia mondiale; della privatizzazione delle risorse energetiche; del divario tra Oriente e Occidente; della guerra nucleare, in cui il nostro nemico sarà la Terra stessa i cui elementi si volgeranno tutti contro di noi. Arundhati Roy sottolinea con forza la necessità a riprendere in mano il proprio futuro.

How many dead children for every dead man? How many dead mujahideen for each dead investment banker? Witness the Infinite Justi Leggi tutto

Highlights : --The main new article is “ Democracy: Who is She When She’s at Home? ”, chronicling India’s failures with “democracy”. This traces the rise of fascistic Hindu nationalism to colonialism’s divide-and-conquer, h Leggi tutto
I am not a left-winger. I have chopped off my right wing as well few years back. Standing at the center and tilting either way as the situation demands is hypocrisy, in my opinion. So I just stand away from the line and observe. In short, I don't have a stand. And that gives me an opportunity to view Leggi tutto
I don't disagree with anything Arundhati says here. It's not that. It's just that these essays mourn too much, grieve too much, complain too much, provide no solutions, and very little new information. They are stuck in a limbo between sentimentalizing loss (while completely failing to make it feel t Leggi tutto
good at writing fiction does not mean good at writing politics
This woman seems to have too much pop corn in her head. Looks like she can present really good left-libral arguments, but she is more of a showman.
From "War Is Peace": "Nothing can excuse or justify an act of terrorism, whether it is committed by religious fundamentalists, private militia, people's resistance movements—or whether it's dressed up as a war of retribution by a recognised government. The bombing of Afghanistan is not revenge for Ne Leggi tutto
This book has probably, some of the best collection of essays, I have ever read. I don't know why people (read humans, not right winged fools) hate her, when her observations are supported by hard facts !You don't worship a writer, you follow what you think is supported by facts and has a deduction
