Glenn Greenwald on Ideology--Pragmatism--War
Christopher Hayes, in a 12-29 The Nation article entitled "The Pragmatist," [Obama] quotes Glenn Greenwald:
"For one thing, as Glenn Greenwald has astutely pointed out on his blog, while ideology can lead decision-makers to ignore facts, it is also what sets the limits of decision-making for pragmatism. 'Presumably, there are instances when a proposed war might be very pragmatically beneficial in promoting our national self-interes,' Greenwald worte, 'but is still something that we ought not to do. Why? Because as a matter of principle--of ideology--we believe that it is not just to do it, no matter how many benefits we might reap, no matter how much it might advance our 'national self-interest.'"
