Yes, you have an important point there, Dr. Pipes, and it would be a laugh riot, along with all the failed attempts we know nothing about, were it not so chilling. It is possible to invent ideological support for all the insane foolishness and sadism of human beings and sometimes it lasted even for 1400-odd years in human history. That could have happened only because the sane sensible people chose to be ignorant and disunited in facing the mass evil. No longer so. Time to permanently bury all institutionalised stupidity everywhere, that seeks to foist its own headlessness on others. We all have the guaranteed right to our own stupidity till kingdom come, just as others have the guaranteed right to good sense and sensibility. Better to keep the two apart and not allow confusions to creep in because of subtle brainwashing and guilt-inducing stratagems of those given over to the religion of stupidity.
