If Bush Met Gandhi....

Personally, I think the ethical/anti-ethical collision would produce a moral implosion the likes of which the universe has rarely seen.

Snark aside, pdcs has a lovely analysis of the different views on civilization, liberty and freedom of the two men. No surprise: Gandhi's views are based more in individual self-transformation and a realistic view of civilization-as-process that requires a long-term and morally consistent approach; Bush's views are largely negative definitions and his ability to justify means with ends is nearly unparalleled in the history of democratic leadership.
