  • Islamofascism :
    We can go and kill terrorists willy nilly across the globe,
    but we have to stop the nations that harbor and support them.
    --thanks Jody William Teach ... who also presents Bush's address to the nation

  • Utopian Thinking :
    There is an impulse that is common to perversion and to utopian thinking. The wish is to create a world in which differences make no difference. The great utopian thinkers have been immensely inspiring, but there is a reason that utopian communities have never worked out. In the name of equality of every sort and in the attempt to eliminate the tensions that normally divide us, they propose to create a marvelously unnatural world without the usual boundaries. But then it gets all F'ed up.
