Global Voices Advocacy...

Having been tagged by Geoffrey....

I vote for Global Voices Advocacy because free speech is essential if we are to have true global community. The idea of a public space, shared across the world, in which we can talk about what matters to us, think in public, and have our thoughts understood and answered, is precious. If we are not simply to survive, but as William Faulkner hoped, to prevail, we need that very much. Our nation, as Derek Walcott punned, is the imagination.
