  •  I think that you mean to address that to DH (0+ / 0-)

    You may want to repost it as a reply to one of his comments so that he sees it.

    Don't be so far above politics that you can't help clear the snakes down on the ground. (P.S.: my opinions are mine, not my employer's.)

      He caught hold of a distinction -- The State as core of everythng -- and ain'tgonna give it up.

      Copying a favorite pit bull.

      BTW: Wiki on fascism.

      "Anti-individualistic, the fascist conception of life stresses the importance of the State and accepts the individual only insofar as his interests coincide with those of the State, which stands for the conscience and the universal will of man as a historic entity.... The fascist conception of the State is all-embracing; outside of it no human or spiritual values can exist, much less have value.... Fascism is therefore opposed to that form of democracy which equates a nation to the majority, lowering it to the level of the largest number.... We are free to believe that this is the century of authority, a century tending to the 'right', a Fascist century. If the nineteenth century was the century of the individual (liberalism implies individualism) we are free to believe that this is the 'collective' century, and therefore the century of the State."

      Mussolini.

      Sounds like the play list guy at Clear Channel. They'll tell us what to think, you betcha....

      Dixie Chicks and Amy Winehouse. Imus and Lenny Bruce. Overcome evil with good.
