About Jonathan Blumen and The Ethical Spectacle

Write for the Spectacle! Articles on any ethical, political or legal topic will be considered, whether or not I agree with the opinions expressed. I am also seeking correspondents to cover particular interests and topics on a regular basis; eg, a Washington correspondent or a media correspondent, for example. Particularly needed: a conservative to cover the ethics of the President and the Democrats the way I cover Mr. Gingrich....

Coming next month: Progress and decay. May: War crimes. June: The bomb.

"Noticing that no-one held the values I defended, I decided to make a spectacle of myself."--Richard Foreman

I've written a book on free speech in cyberspace. For more information:
