Using Terror In The Service Of Politics

Our own government again and again has used terror against it's citizens in increasing frequency in order to gain political advantages. Even now our own government is engaging in a campaign of terror, fear and bedwetting in order to produce desired political outcomes in November.

The MSM is eating it up, working hard to terrorize Americans in order to get them to think in the desired political frame of mind.

What do we call people that inspire terror in order to bring about desired political outcomes?

We call them terrorists.

ugh. I know I've said it before, but this time I mean it: I am not going to read CFN any more. Yesterday's post was the last last straw- Kunstler has offically lost his freaking mind.

Evidently now we went to war with Iraq because we're fighting an international war with Jihad, who hates us, and since Jihad has no national boundries, attacking Sadam was the next best thing ... because you know, his secular dictatorship had a lot to do with religious violence ... I thought he thought the Iraq war was about oil oil and nothing but oil. Suddenly it's 'we had to hit them back for what they did to us on 9/11'?

Kunstler is insane.

Hopefully we can have some rational interesting discussion on peak oil here like we used to have in the good old days at CFN.

So how about CFNrs just start posting here instead? At least here we have a blog-owner who is A. Not (certifiably anyway) insane :) and B. paying attention so that the likes of OEO cannot derail the topic every single week. So put the word out.

Wease: the "terror" invective is revealed more and more every day for what it is: a Lie.

Now Bushco wants to call "conspiracy" a war crime. Of course he gets to decide what the definition of "conspiracy" is. JHK has totally lost it. It is painful to watch the trainwreck that is CFN, so I don't. If I want to be brainwashed I can watch msm.

Ditto all the above, wease. Think I may have posted two links in as many weeks . . . and no comments . . . it's just too crazy. Anyway, wanted to say I loved the song and the JT 'hat.' :-) Keep on pickin' and a-strummin'

Thanks for the nice words about my performances. :)

It's very hard for us to shake the irrational beliefs that are ingrained in us in children.

For me it was a painful and difficult process. I was rejected by my church for things that in retrospect, were very minor and common offences for young teenagers. The shunning I experienced colored my life for years. It certainly changed the way I view religion and spirituality.

I can see and understand how folks that never divorced themselves from religion would be emotionally crippled by events that go to the core of the cherished tenets of their faith.

I think JHK's loss of perspective is a symptom of this. For him it's personal. He can't step back and see the bigger picture.

All the rationality and perspective that he has cultivated in the arena of Peak Oil and the decline of civilization, is held hostage by feelings and beliefs instilled in him through his formative years.

He's not alone. He's demonstrating in a single personality what many of us are going to experience at some time or another as we slide down the slope of Peak Energy.

I can't help but wonder what could send me over the way JHK has gone. What would make me lose perspective? And just how rational am I?
