— THE SOCIETY OF THE SPECTACLE

AFTER THE MOMENT.

A stirring, strong speech. Impressive – and fascinating how EVERYONE seemed to stop and listen to it – a true global leader. Personal highlight? This passage stood out.

“To those leaders around the globe who seek to sow conflict, or blame their society’s ills on the west – know that your people will judge you on what you can build, not what you destroy. To those who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent, know that you are on the wrong side of history; but that we will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist.”

Anyways here’s a great gallery (via GAWKER) of the world watching Washington.
