Can the subaltern kill?   posted by Razib @ 12/03/2005 06:28:00 PM

Yes. Though I've said it a million times, but I will say it again, over the past generation the tendency toward respecting cultural particularisms has come at the expense of expanding the rights of individuals. This is not an incoherent or particularly new position, the group as the operational unit of identity worked for the Ottomans and their millet system. I just wish people would be more honest about the reality that life is about choices.
