Dec 2001 SMH News Review

John Anderson mentioned in discussion of attitudes to September 11 2001 terrorist attacks:

Americans are also self-absorbed. Owen Harries, senior fellow at the Centre for Independent Studies in Sydney and a former editor of the foreign affairs magazine The National Interest, writes in the journal this month that the insistence that everything was changed utterly was "nonsense".

"It reflects not the reality of the matter but the difficulty that intellectuals habitually have in distinguishing between the state of their minds and the state of the world. It also reflects what the philosopher John Anderson termed the 'parochialism of the present', a condition resulting from a combination of ignorance of history and an egotistical insistence on exaggerating the importance of events that more or less directly involve oneself."
