Refuting Steven Pinker’s “A History of Violence”
04 Apr 2007
"Though the sophistication of traditional theology is lacking, the similarity of themes and style is striking. It reveals the extent to which worship of the state has become a secular religion for which the intellectuals serve as priesthood. The more primitive sectors of Western culture go further, fostering forms of idolatry in which such sacred symbols as the flag become an object of forced veneration, and the state is called upon to punish any insult to them and to compel children to pledge their devotion daily, while God and State are almost indissolubly linked in public ceremony and discourse, as in James Reston's musings on our devotion to the will of the Creator. It is perhaps not surprising that such crude fanaticism rises to such an extreme in the United States, as an antidote for the unique freedom from state coercion that has been achieved by popular struggle."

Modified: 04:17:41 AM
In the end all the American voters are going to get in 2008 is a very slight change of government,a new "default" government that will offer them nothing,let alone any redress,or justice over the treasonous outrages and the genocidal war crimes of the Bush Regime!
