A Few Quick Links: What I’ve Been Reading

At work inside our detention centres: a guard’s story. Read it.

The End of American Exceptionalism takes a look at three trends contributing to the decline of Americans’ belief in their country’s exceptionalism: anticlericalism, non-interventionism brought on by war fatigue, and the rise of class consciousness in tandem with rising inequality.  Peter Beinhart places the blame firmly in the laps of hyper-conservatives. A tremendously interesting read.

For aid tragics, Robin Davies takes a close look at the Australian aid budget after the cuts, and Tom Paulson warns of the dangers of over-reliance on data.

Just a quick one today folks as I have two imminent deadlines.
