A burning question for many of us conservatives (if not most), is the issue of why so many liberals, that is to say, why so many "commie-libs" qua "commie-symps" qua "commies" qua lefty, pinko Neo-Marxist, qua "New Age" Marxist qua fashionable-chic Marxist "radiclibs" — why so many of the former almost unanimously defend, excuse and apologize for Moslem Jihadists and Islamo-terrorists?
(Wow, how's that for a loaded and leading question?)
So far the answers offered toward that end appear to me to be somewhat tenuous and lacking, in a word, seem not to be intellectually, philosophically and polemically adequate nor accurate nor fully reasoned out nor rationally complete. So please allow me, dear readers, to offer and throw my worthless two cents into the fray.
But first this disclaimer. As much as I would like to flesh out my arguments in great, great depth and voluminous detail; nevertheless I must quote a former, fellow co-worker who said, "ain't got no time to jive baby." So nuff said pah-d-ners.
As I see it there are two very basic, seminal and central reasons, one which is quite simple and the other not.
First the rather simple reason: The enemy of my enemy, is my friend (and in this case, my ally too).
But the second is not all that simple and I suspect for many, especially without the slightest degree of explication, that it will either be a difficult pill to swallow which will be met with great, great gnashing of teeth and violent, knee-jerk paroxysm; or, rather will be a difficult set of ideas and arguments to follow, digest and or fully fathom. But again, dear readers, I humbly ask you to at least allow me the effort.
The second reason, simply stated: Liberals qua 'commie-libs' et al, et al; essentially are soul mates with these Moslem terrorists and Jihadists.
Now I can hear the roar of indignant howling and the popping of spastic, liberal kneecaps for miles and miles throughout the nation. Oh, for shame, for shame - how can I possibly say this? Answer: very easily.
I base this on the seminal work of Eric Hoffer, re his magnum opus "The True Believer" first published in 1951. I also base this observation and conclusion on my own personal knowledge of Classical history in particular as well as all of world history to date, as limited as that be; as well as upon four essential, sine qua non, historians and philosophers whom I group together as the underlying pillars of a Unified, Quantum Field, Theory of History, e.g., Thoucydides, Edward Gibbon, H. G. Wells and Ayn Rand. I.e., Thoucydides lays down the basic blueprint, Gibbon chronicles it, and H. G. Wells and Ayn Rand further explain and complete the blueprint.
