Truly a Voice Crying in the Wilderness

Chalmers Johnson, who passed away this week, was a frequent contributor to TomDispatch.com, an Internet voice against American imperialism.

Chalmers Johnson was truly a voice crying in the wilderness.

Once again, I recommend visiting TomDispatch.com to read what a number of insightful writers are offering on the subject of American Imperialism and the likely tragic consequences for American democracy.
