Reader comment on item: "A Corrective to the Pipes Worldview"?

Submitted by Donald W. Bales (United States), Aug 29, 2005 at 22:41

Many people have trouble with rational thinking. Other have trouble writing clear expository prose. Some have trouble with both. Perhaps that is the trouble with the person writing a correction for your book. Then one has to consider that the trouble is neither of those, but that the trouble is a disregard for the truth and the willingness to use lies ot promote one's agenda. The Nazis were good at that, and the Communists even better.
