The New Jacobins...
I don't know what it is about the French, but they seem to know how to annoy everyone. They aggravate the Right by not going along with wars, and the Left by circumscribing religious freedom.

Some have suggested that this is an argument to be had with religious nutters, a brave secular attack on the ancien regime. I hate to tell you this, but it ain't.

The World Economic Forum, Warsaw, 28-30/04/2004

01-01-2004 23:18

The participation of the World Bank and the World Economic Forum in the political decisions of Poland is little known about. But when the WEF comes to Warsaw (28-30/04/2004) it is highly likely there will be an 'alternative economic' forum and militant action to open the grounds for debate.
