Pluriverse Reality...Universe Myth

Reader comment on item: Profs Who Hate America

Submitted by Addi Keim (United States), Nov 14, 2002 at 10:23

Sadly, most academics who delude themselves with the notion that Saddam, or any non-Western culture that does not have a heritage of individualism and secular law as the guide to action, will respond honestly and forthrightly--took numerous pages to say 'yes' to the 1441 Res.!!!--because he is 'just like us,' has never seen the piece Daniel Pipes' father so eloquently put together as a response to a NIE re: Team A-Team B in the mid-1970's...Richard Pipes was right on target with the nonsensical deformation professionelle of U.S. scientists trusting Soviets then, and it is still appropriate to the Ivory Tower folk illusions of today. Academics reap the benefits of endless efforts of security and intelligence people, as well as the military who die for them, but have no clue of that REAL world, and we are NOT all alike in this pluriverse world of multiple cultures and political veneer...Mirror imagery is just that....a deception which is taught to students under the guise of 'neutral standards.'
