  •  And priests. (10+ / 0-)

    So Erickon endorses killing priests.

    Something he never mentions.

    "...to name something is to own it." Thomas L. Friedman. Pleonexia. Ruthless self-seeking. An arrogant assumption that others and things exist for one's own benefit. I now own the Republican Party.

      Still the good old right-wing standby for political philosophy: divide everything into Absolute Good and Absolute Evil (with "communism" inextricably defined as the latter), then tag anything you don't like - especially political movements that might side with the poor vs. the rich - as "commie" : presto! Instant and blanket justification for any abuse of power you can think of!

      Stalin''s Ukrainian famine?
      Mao's Cultural Revolution?
      The Khmer Rouge?
      A couple of Argentine priests working with the poor?

      All of a piece! No excuses necessary.....
