Discuss.
Communism only failed because the wrong people were in control.
Told by useful idiots...and the NYTimes.

How about:

"No reasonable offer will be refused!"

What does it even mean? An old history professor of mine called statements like that "non-statements"....

80 percent of history are lies, but no lies are as great as religious or racial myths.
But reconsidering....the myth that says that "man are..good, bad...corrupted by the environment"...those are the greatest modern myths.

What is the greatest lie ever created? What is the most vicious obscenity ever perpetrated upon mankind? Slavery? The holocaust? Dictatorship? No! It's the tool with which all of that wickedness is built. Altruism. Whenever anyone wants others to do their work, they call upon their altruism. Never mind your own needs they say. Think of the needs of whoever. The State. The poor. The army. The king. God. The list goes on and on. How many catastrophes were launched with the words "Think of yourself"? It's the king and country crowd that lights the torch of destruction.

It's this great inversion, this ancient lie that has chained humanity to an endless cycle of guilt and failure.

Your actual gripe appears to be nationalism, not altruism. When people rally for a bad cause, the problem isn't the people's instinct to rally, it is that the cause is bad. Altruism is merely a tool, one which may lead the actor to support a good or bad cause.

the warnings were out there, but GWB played golf all summer. The Neo-cons agreed to allow it to happen in order to further the one world Globalist agenda stripping us of our civil liberties. It happened.
