As I've been gathering Derrida and Meyer Shapiro together to engage MichaelP
in a conversion on Van Gogh's peasant shoes, I've also been pondering W's
last press conference during which he also addressed the nation. I hope you will
forgive me if I don't capitalize George W. Bush's name.
What struck me in the address was the mention of a phrase a number of times:
the first time it is mentioned is the following; "We're changing the world."
(page 4 of the NY times transcript).It is mentioned a couple of times in the
question-and-answer part of the discussion as in " And a free Iraq is going to
be a major blow for terrorism. It'll change the world." (page 8 of the NYTimes
I am curious about how you interpret this phrase "We're going to change the
world" ? How do you see it as a non-imperialist statement?
Yes, this is a loaded question!
