  • Does Fox "News" cultivate Closed Minded "Right Wing Authoritarians"?
    • Yes to all of this. The Authoritarian Personality description fits the average Fox viewer. These people are not much different than the "average" German of the 1930s who believed Nazi Propaganda because they wanted to.

  • Should Americans be allowed to Serve in Foreign Armies?
    • Well, I don't know if it was legal but Americans enlisted in the Canadian Military to fight for England in WWI and also in WWII before the U.S. got involved in those conflicts. Guess it depends on who the enemy of our friend is or the enemy of our enemy of....oh well, you get it.

  • Helpless Giant: How Imperial US Elites Tied America Down All by Themselves
    • As usual you are extremely right. Unfortunately, you do not have a wide enough audience in this Corporatocracy for your wisdom to reach enough people. Otherwise, you would be appearing on the ridiculous Sunday "News" Talk shows instead of the usual lineup of fools and hacks that the Media foists on their audiences. I have little hope our nation will survive much beyond mid-century by which time I will be long gone from this mortal coil. Keep up the good work though. It's sorely needed.

  • The Debacle of the Caliphates: Why al-Baghdadi's Grandiosity doesn't Matter
    • When I encounter someone who is abysmally ignorant(which is most people) about the Middle East I tell them if they really want to know what's going on in that misbegotten part of the world, they should read Juan Cole. I also wrote to those ridiculous Sunday Morning "News" shows which keep dragging in the odious ignoramus Bill Kristol and others of his ilk, that if they want credibility, they ought to bring in someone like Juan Cole.. It seems from reading this post that there are others out "there" who are far more familiar with what's really going on in the Middle East than anyone in the traditional Media.
