Continuing The Hypnotics of Erudite Intellectualism's Delusions of Grandeur

Reader comment on item: Tolerance and Risk

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Dec 7, 2021 at 16:48

In the vein of thinking that was Dr. Pipes' earlier contemplation of the demise of higher education in the American collegiate landscape, the postulations of one area of deliberations are apparently crystalized here in an attempt to placate while at the same time bait for a debate of the losses in conservative strongholds of thinking that a fight for the social consciousness of post American values would potentially return an investment of proper values to that American mindset once held dear, but now lost to the more seductive admiration of self-fulfilling dreams of unrestrained grandeur while in pursuit of similarly unrestrained pursuits of passions. Of such, self induced pursuits requiring are to be tolerated and the risks are assigned to be born by others deemed not important enough to care about.
America, once a bastion of the conservative thought that freedom was to be preserved so that those who knew a proper social order was necessary in order for those who practiced their faith in freedom could do so without governmental or other interferences; except that was perceived as a weakness that begged interferences and eventual rebellion in order to bring about a different world order: domination. Enter Islam. All one need do now is see how Islam has become the source of all sorts of rebellion to understand why Christianity was targeted, that while love was preached, division in the Christian realm became the tool of the Adversary to keep peace at bay while the agents of the rebellion wreaked havoc in the way to total destruction of the species. After all, who dares stop them: America? The Academics laugh at that.
