During the past two years, he has further exiled himself from the mainstream American left by responding with skepticism and disdain to reports of Russian government interference in the Presidential election. These arguments, underpinned by a distaste for banal political opinions and a profound distrust of American institutions—including the C.

Greenwald is also a tennis fan—and a regular, sweary player. He recently began working on a documentary about his adolescent fascination with Martina Navratilova. And he wanted to encourage me in that particular moment to continue to learn, to continue to grow, and to remember to be kind—to yourself and to your critics. Greenwald has experienced his own share of criticism, but is not known for showing kindness to critics.
Michael Hayden, the former director of the C. On Twitter, he has little use for agree-to-disagree courtesies, or humor: he presses on. Greenwald lives in Rio de Janeiro with his husband, David Miranda, their two sons, and two dozen dogs, former strays; Sandgren offered Greenwald and his children tickets, and they all met at the venue. Video of one match shows Greenwald, in the front row, applauding every point with dad-outing gusto. Sandgren described their trade in tennis and politics. And, if he does get a little frustrated or angry, then look out.
Greenwald told me about his friendship with Sandgren during one of several recent conversations at his home. Greenwald, who is fifty-one, and was brought up in Florida, has lived largely in Rio for thirteen years. For most of that time, he and Miranda, a city-council member, rented a home on a hillside above the city, surrounded by forest and monkeys.
Last year, they moved to a more residential neighborhood. The house is in a baronial-modernist style, and built around a forty-foot-tall boulder that feels like the work of a sculptor tackling Freudian themes: it exists partly indoors and partly out. Greenwald has a pool, and his street is gated. He seemed happy. He was wearing shorts and flip-flops; he has a soft handshake and an easy, teasing manner that he knows will likely confound people who expect the sustained contentiousness that he employs online and on TV. On cable news shows, Greenwald draws his lower lip over his bottom teeth, blinks slowly, and seems able to state his position on the Espionage Act of while inhaling.
He recently became attached to the idea of mindfulness, and he keeps a Buddha and a metal infinity loop on a shelf behind the sofa; a room upstairs is used only for meditation. Greenwald has tried to cut back on social media. Several weeks later, he announced to colleagues, on Slack, that he was further disengaging from Twitter; he also deleted twenty-seven thousand old tweets, saying that there was a risk that their meaning could be distorted.
Greenwald told me that he and Tennys Sandgren had been communicating every day. He worked his whole life to get to this point, and the moment he gets there they turn him into Hitler. Greenwald then acknowledged that, having perceived Sandgren as vulnerable—as someone suddenly exposed to intense public scrutiny—he might have misread the dominant tone. Greenwald writes aggressively about perceived aggression.
His instinct is to identify, in any conflict, the side that is claiming authority or incumbency, and then to throw his weight against that claim, in favor of the unauthorized or the unlicensed—the intruder.

Many readers, though certainly not all, could also agree that Edward Snowden had engaged in a courageous insurgency. In the buildup to the election, Greenwald detected a conflict between actors defiantly contemptuous of American norms—the Republican Presidential nominee, WikiLeaks , Vladimir Putin —and the establishment forces that he hates, including the U. In the period since then—these months of Guccifer 2. Although he has acknowledged the failings not to mention the indictments of some people in the insurgent category, he has focussed his editorial energy on documenting the past infractions and continuing misjudgments of people—in the intelligence agencies, the Department of Justice, Congress, and the media—who have provided apparent evidence of Russian interference and Trump-campaign collusion.
Greenwald has questioned their reliability, and has disputed their evidence, to a degree that has frustrated even some colleagues at the Intercept. I regard it as a subverter of it. We know some basic contours of it now, thanks to Mueller, but I think we may learn more.test.galenachamber.com/map76.php
The Use and Abuse of the Mind - Truth and Charity Forum
I feel that Trump winning is the worst possible thing that could have happened to him, and it sort of ruined him as a valuable voice in American discourse. He had given up a career as a litigator in New York, moved to Brazil, and started to write, first as a blogger and then as a columnist for Salon. When Greenwald and I first met in Rio, we sat at a dining table made of dark, heavy wood, and he served extraordinarily strong coffee.
I think the people who are doing this are genuinely offended by the entire Trump circle, in part for political and ideological reasons, and in part because he has broken all of the rules of their world, in terms of who gets to be in power, and what you have to do to get it. To Greenwald, an agonized response to Trump carries with it the delusional proposition that previous Presidents were upstanding. I asked him if anti-Trump sentiment implies that America, absent Trump, is virtuous. The Defense of Marriage Act, passed in , denied Miranda the immigration opportunities of a spouse, and, over the years, Greenwald reminded people who questioned his long absence from America that he was a victim of discrimination.
Miranda had been delayed at work, so Greenwald brought the children. They are brothers, now aged nine and ten, from the poor northeast of Brazil; the couple adopted them last fall. Franco, like Miranda, was a black, gay, working-class member of the city council. A jacket and a pressed shirt were hanging by an open back window. We drove down to the beach, then followed the ocean, eastward, through the neighborhoods of Ipanema where Greenwald met Miranda, in , on a gay section of the beach, at the start of a vacation and Copacabana.
I almost drowned them in the pool. Greenwald was an infant when his parents moved from Queens to Lauderdale Lakes, Florida, and he was six when they separated. This is wrong: Navratilova did sometimes call herself bisexual, notably in her autobiography. Greenwald noted that some gay teens respond to persecution by assimilating, or by escaping into the arts. I had to hide who I was, because it was shameful and wrong.
The TV studio was in a tower above a mall. Leaving the boys to run around in the stores with the security officer, we went to the thirty-seventh floor. It was about 8 P. Greenwald disappeared for a minute, and returned wearing self-administered makeup, a jacket, a shirt, and a tie, as well as his shorts and flip-flops.
He also recognized a stark moral line between the Democratic Party and the Republican Party, arguing that the G. Greenwald sat on a stool, and a technician affixed an earpiece. As he waited for an Al Jazeera studio in Washington to be ready, he put on red-framed glasses and read from his laptop. For doing evil to another is the same as injuring him? But if this is true, what is the application? In leaving the prison against the will of the Athenians, do I wrong any? Do I not desert the principles which were acknowledged by us to be just? What do you say? The Greeks have personified many abstract concepts and ideas.
Socrates does this with the laws. He states that the laws are like a parent. They raise and brought him up like a parent. They have done this through many of the various services the state provide to the people. The laws state are like a parent with their services because like a parent they nurtured Socrates. They provide him with public education, public entertainment, public protection military , etc.
He would be dishonoring them if he turned his back on them and his word. He owes the laws state like he owes his parents for raising him, to listen and obey them. Your father married your mother by our aid and begat you. Say whether you have any objection to urge against those of us who regulate marriage?

- Subverter (Lost Road Chronicles, #2) by J. Leigh Bralick;
Were not the laws, who have the charge of this, right in commanding your father to train you in music and gymnastic? He has not only sworn to follow the laws, and accept whatever verdict and punishment that the court prescribe him, but there is an implicit agreement he has made with the laws. The fact that he took in and used government services from children to present. That he has lived and not left the city in his seventy years of life, except in military services. That he has grown and raised his children here.
This shows he is happy and satisfied with Athens.
About the Book
If he had found them to be unjust or if he had displeasures with the city he could have left anytime he wished. The fact he has not, further binds him to his implicit contract with the laws. As a result he has implicitly agreed to obey the laws. Any of you who does not like us and the city, and who wants to go to a colony or to any other city, may go where he likes, and take his goods with him. Of all Athenians you have been the most constant resident in the city, which, as you never leave, you may be supposed to love…Nor had you any curiosity to know other States or their laws: your affections did not go beyond us and our State; we were your especial favorites, and you acquiesced in our government of you; and this is the State in which you begat your children, which is a proof of your satisfaction…And first of all answer this very question: Are we right in saying that you agreed to be governed according to us in deed, and not in word only?
Is that true or not?
He cannot rationalize what he could say to the law. That the argument that the jury did him wrong, therefore he can disregard them. It is with the laws he has implicitly consent to obey as well as swearing before the gods to obey. He of all people should not be harming and dishonoring the law. He has claimed to teach and show people how to live a good, to be virtuous. How can he face anyone or himself if he were to violate everything he stood for.
His life would be meaningless and forfeit should he leave with Crito, due to the way of life he lived and what he believed in.
Nicolas Lenglet Dufresnoy and the literary underworld of the ancien régime
He believed he is here to teach people about virtue and how to be good. He is commanded by the gods to be here. To be humble and show those who would think they know wisdom, that they really do not. Here to annoy and prod the state forgets itself and becomes wicked Socrates is there to remind the state.
He is to be the gadfly of the state and people. But nothing is going as planned. The High King Zhabyr is falling apart. But Merelin soon realizes that she is not the victim of a horrible plot, but just one more pawn in a deadly game she never really understood. It is the game immortals play, and nothing can prepare her for the truths that are coming to light, or the enemy she knows she will have to face. In the coming fight Merelin cannot stand alone. But can she bring her allies together before it is too late? After spending some years working on the Madness Method novels, I fell in love with narrating from alternating 1st person perspectives.
I always felt like the Lost Road books suffered a little bit from having a single narrator — and that narrator being someone with no prior knowledge of Arah Byen and its history, people, and culture. These are not simply the same chapters told from alternating viewpoints ugh! When her father disappeared unexpectedly four years ago, sixteen-year-old Merelin could never shake the feeling that everyone stopped looking for him much too quickly. Then she receives a curious medallion that once belonged to him, and her whole world changes—literally.
She finds herself swept into a harsh but beautiful world, where an ancient civilization stands on the brink of annihilation at the hands of an enemy they have no weapons to fight. Some believe she will save them all. Yatol has been training all his life as a Guardian of the star road, but it has been four years since anyone came across from the world on the other side.
