Cretinous Policy Intellectuals

From “Rationalizing Lunacy” by Andrew J. Bacevich:

What the three shared in common, apart from a suspect education acquired in New Haven, was an unwavering commitment to the reigning verities of the Cold War.  Foremost among those verities was this: that a monolith called Communism, controlled by a small group of fanatic ideologues hidden behind the walls of the Kremlin, posed an existential threat not simply to America and its allies, but to the very idea of freedom itself.  The claim came with this essential corollary: the only hope of avoiding such a cataclysmic outcome was for the United States to vigorously resist the Communist threat wherever it reared its ugly head.

The present-day successors to Bundy, Rostow, and Huntington subscribe to their own reigning verities.  Chief among them is this: that a phenomenon called terrorism or Islamic radicalism, inspired by a small group of fanatic ideologues hidden away in various quarters of the Greater Middle East, poses an existential threat not simply to America and its allies, but — yes, it’s still with us — to the very idea of freedom itself.  That assertion comes with an essential corollary dusted off and imported from the Cold War: the only hope of avoiding this cataclysmic outcome is for the United States to vigorously resist the terrorist/Islamist threat wherever it rears its ugly head.

Callipygian Charm

Rondure is the quintessence of callipygian charm. You need "junk in the trunk" to attain it, yes. But there are diminishing--and even negative returns. Jennifer Lopez has got it; Kim Kardashian, not so much.

In-Group Double Standards

You can sell two different standards for in-group and out-group if you convince the larger culture of the in-group's eternal persecution at the hands of out-groups. When you pull off that con, you're home free. Otherwise, universality is the hallmark of universality. There's no telling what manner of eternal persecution-denial ensues then,

Two Good Wars

America's two good wars--the War of Northern Aggression and Double U Double U Two--created the blueprint for homicidal humanitarianism. When the U.S. bombs, it does so reluctantly, while shedding crocodile tears, and then only to uplift and civilize the wogs. Southerners, Germans and Japanese all "got it." Why do the Mohammedans resist? They must be inveterate evildoers.

Muslim Aggression Against the Christian West

This in no way justifies the War on Terror. The tables long ago turned. Since the Industrial Revolution at least, the (secular and democratic) West has colonized, attacked, invaded, annoyed, molested and otherwise aggressed against the Muslim world. 

The (secular and democratic) West--the U.S. specifically--should cease and desist from this pattern of behavior. But the fact remains a dire history of Muslim aggression against the (Christian and monarchical) West preceded the (secular and democratic) West's aggression against the Muslims. Surprisingly enough (not!), this history has gone studiously ignored.

I'm Sorry!

I am sorry for the Holocaust. I am sorry for the Church of Rome. I am sorry the Church of Rome laid the groundwork for the Holocaust. 

I am really sorry I don't believe the Church Rome laid the foundation for the Holocaust. I am really sorry I don't believe the Official Holocaust Account, whatever its present-day permutation, because whether the Holocaust happened as it is alleged to have happened in the Official Holocaust Account is really beside the point. The point being the Church of Rome specifically--and the Euro-Christian tribes generally--are the root of all evil in the world.

I am really, really sorry for slavery. I am really, really sorry for pointing out that all races practiced the peculiar institution, even as only the Euro-Christians get blamed, and that the only reason the Euro-Christians get blamed is to advance a nefarious political agenda. Who cares if the Eternally Persecuted Race enslaved its own? Who cares if it went so far as to hand its own over to the Eternally Accursed Race? Who cares if the Eternally Persecuted Race fared better under enslavement to the Eternally Accursed Race than under enslavement to its own? 

Why even broach the subject? Let alone posit it? How dare I give voice to such irredeemable thought crime?! O the humanity!

Finally, I am really, really, really sorry for defending my faith, my family, my people, my gene pool, my blood, my soil and my civilization. And what the hell was I thinking rooting for my favorite college and sports teams?! They suck, too!

My maniacal hatred knows no bounds! Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa! I am really, really, really sorry.

AWAD: [Conspiracy] Theory

You often hear the word "theory" connected to a conspiratorial explanation for a newsworthy event. Such theory barely rises to the level of hypothesis, typically, which is where the "speculation" sense of the word comes into play. Not that such quibbles matter to conspiracy theorists. 

They fancy themselves power-elite analysts. Cockamamie mainstream explanations for, inter alia, the assassination of President Kennedy or the September 11, 2001 collapse of World Trade Center 7 cannot help but meet with skepticism. This in turn spurs the positing of alternative interpretations. 

Conspiracy theorists will stop theorizing when the Party Line starts exhibiting some tie to reality. It's as simple as that.
