Van Jones: Radical Ends

Forgoing the radical pose
I have often said it is better to have an honest enemy than a dishonest friend.  Not because I'm desirous of having enemies but because I'm tired of being sold out behind closed doors by those claiming to represent my values.  "Honest people don't hide their deeds", as Emily Bronte so eloquently put it.  Often it is possible to determine what someone is thinking by listening to what they say.  And if you want to know what they believe, watch what they do.  But if you really want to know where an individual's headed, take a look at where they came from, who they've been with, and who their associations are.  Trajectory can be a powerful thing.  Thankfully not as powerful as an informed citizenry.

Van Jones: The Radical Pose

It would be in every American's best interest to know the name Van Jones. Moreover, people in the US need to know where this man's been, who he's been with, and understand who his associations are. He's "willing to forgo the cheap satisfaction of the radical pose for the deep satisfaction of radical ends".  These words are the road map between Jone's early visible radicalism and his recent "respectable" activism.  "The Radical Pose" is the first in a two part series focusing on President Obama's former Special Adviser Van Jones.
