I don't get it... (english)

Steve DeVoy posts all of his ideas online for people to read and rebut if desired. George Bush and Arnold Schwarzenincompoop go to great lengths to disassociate themselves from their past connections to Nazis and Nazi sympathizers (particularly those in their families). Now, which men sound like they must be stopped, questioned, arrested, convicted, exiled, etc...?

The similarities between both Bush and Ahnold to Hitler, combined with their past family ties to Nazis should be setting off alarm bells in any brains out there that still work. If you'd rather obsess over the anarchist and communist red herrings, that is your choice. The anti-Bush crowd, whatever you think of our politics, were right about this war. We stood up more than a year ago now to warn of the lies being fabricated. We wrote our "liberal" congressfolk. We marched in the streets, with millions around the world.

Americans chose to ignore that vast majority and place its faith instead in known liars and people whose families included loyal Nazis and Nazi sympathizers who traded with the enemy. The conflict you see on this forum is very real. We've been fighting this type of fear-mongering and scapegoating for ages. The people who attack Steve DeVoy cannot explain why we should trust Bush or the TermiNazi. We heard them say "trust us" before, before your tax dollars were spent bombing, killing, and maiming both innocent Iraqi and innocent American children (yes, 18 year olds can vote and fight and die, but they are just children.) What do you think will happen if you keep trusting people who are now known beyond a shadow of doubt to have plotted and lied about their motivations for at least a year before the war?

Steve DeVoy is the first self-proclaimed anarchist with whom I have ever spoken at any length about the philosophical tenets of anarchism. He is more articulate than Bush or Schwarzegoebbels, and his "revolutionary" ideas, which he does not hide, are non-violent in nature, and represent many great american traditions like personal liberty and freedom from exploitation. Has he made me an anarchist? No, he has made me understand anarchist philosophy.

And as someone who believes that Jesus of Nazareth represented the "dangerous", "seditious" idea that a person's relationship with the God of his people needed not be dictated by the political machinations of "religious" authorities, I think that his ideas are a step in the right direction, away from centralized authority. As Billy Bragg sang in "Between the Wars": "Theirs is a sky all dark with bombers, mine is a faith in my fellow man." Bush and Arnold both believe in executing certain criminals. Jesus was himself an executed "criminal". Whose side do you THINK he's on, or would be on??

Nothing is more fearsome to liars than when truths they've long abused and stretched beyond recognition whip back in their face. Don't get caught in the middle. Find out the truth for yourself, by reading BOTH DeVoy's and Daley's sites. Don't stop there, though. The search for truth and meaning in life means going out and studying issues yourself, not waiting for it to land in your lap or be anded to you on the internet.

Long live revolutionary thought, and revolutionary thinkers like Jesus, Marx, and Einstein. Please note all three men were Jewish, and think carefully anytime anyone carelessly wields the dangerous charge of anti-semitism or self-loathing against those who hold dissenting views.
