re: #201 researchok

Why do you suppose all dysfunctional regimes have such huge state security apparatuses? Perhaps it is because they understand that given the cjance, people will abandon these regimes. No one really wants to be a part of the evil. That is as true of the Libyans, Tunisians and Egyptians as it was of the Poles, Czechs and East Germans.

This is obvious; not sure why you’re telling me about it.

The right aren’t the only ones who speak in apocalyptic terms. Remember George Bush’s FEMA concentration camps? Recall how many were sure he would declare martial law in a matter of days? There are an equally sizable group of people on the left who share the same ‘government is corrupt’ ideas.

I never said the right was alone in speaking in apocalyptic terms. I hate summoning the MBF, so I’m not going to drag out all the examples of how different the current climate is WRT the right wingt as it’s been well documented here and we’re all aware of it.

Nevertheless, the government here is a far cry from the governments of repressive regimes.

So is the government in Norway, but that didn’t stop ABB. Or McVeigh. I repeat: We are not immune. I never, ever want to see this happen again here. We need to pay attention to the red flags being waved in our faces.

Also, who decides what are and are not acceptable ideologies?

I believe you already answered that here:

Only values, born of dignity and the recognition that all men and women are of equal value, determines morality and codes of conduct. It is an ideology that drives people to exceed their potential for good.

And I agree with you 100%.

Terror is not brought on by poverty or by an influx of immigrants. Children are not shot because of multiculturalism and bombs are not planted because of an economic malaise. Planes aren’t flown into buildings so as to air political grievances.

All these things happen on the right and left because there are groups and individuals who want to seize and assert power.

That’s right, and they do that by using an ideological bait & switch. They promise one thing an deliver another.

My point is that our government is currently very concerned about the far right, and I don’t believe those concerns are motivated by political partisanship or hysteria, I think they’re based on law enforcement intelligence & experience. If they’re worried, then I’m worried, especially in light of this week’s events.
