You know, the paranoid in me is beginning to suspect that the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy(tm) has laid out this perfect little two-point plan:

1. Convince the public that only moderate opinions are valid
2. Convince the public that only far right opinions are moderate

And you know? I am simultaneous sure that I'm a lunatic to think such a thing, and absolutely sure it's true. At the same time.

I think the sleep dep has finally cracked me.

The problem with being paranoid about the far-right is that the far-right, unlike any moderate or left force, is unified. They like each other. The agree on everything. They vary somewhat in degree, but overall they hate the same people. THEY (them those...wow I sound like THEM) see scary things in the shadows, so while an enemy's enemy might not be a friend - they never lose the immediate threat of the enemy long enough to realize it.

If you view the right-wing media machine, you find that what you postulate is in practice. It's not even a secret.

yeah, and the open infighting discussion of alternative viewpoints, which tends to weaken the Left, is something that's valued by the Left. Dissent and diversity isn't valued by the Right, which makes them stronger.

The fundemental difference between the Right and the Left is that the Right's philosophy is based on the belief that they are definitely right, while the Left's is based on the understanding that they might be wrong.

yeah - like, I bet John Ashcroft never makes Live Journal entries where he says he's a lunatic to think such things.

Wow, very insightful and incredibly scary!!
BTW, I believe Friday will work out well for us to go up together. It'll be nice to relax in the woods for a weekend.
