Homefront,

Thanks for expressing one of the core issues that plague my mind these days. It seems that western civilization is doomed by its own evolution. If one is to adhere to Darwin's theory, then that is what is meant to happen. Western culture has reached its apex, become soft and will ultimately collapse from within. If we had understood the REAL threat of communism, we might have acted more aggressively.

I recently watched a brilliant analysis by a comedian, Evan Sayet, you can look him up on youtube.

He clarified for me the mindset of the socialist/academic/left and the root of their thought process. Basically, in their attempt to bring on utopia, they strive to equalize everything. Everyone must be equal so there will be no more hate or war. In order to achieve this, they must make those who are good bad and those who are bad good, all in the name of indiscriminateness (reads straight out of an Ayn Rand book). Saddam was really not THAT bad, and GWBush is really not good. This, in their mind, makes everyone more equal and more inclined to have peace on earth.

Would be interested to hear your thoughts on this, and if you have the chance, see the Sayet piece, as he expresses it far better than I. (be patient to get through the first few minutes)

Best to you,

sara
