Keep doing what you are doing...

Reader comment on item: A Strongman for Iraq?

Submitted by John W. McGinley (United States), Apr 29, 2003 at 16:52

Dear Mr. Pipes: I am a religious reader of the NYP and I have been a steady reader of your columns, it seems, for at least three months. Probably much longer. You are terrifically refined and accurate in your analyses. And I am willing to bet that a fair number of intelligent but, in my opinion, misguided individuals would be very uncomfortable with your analyses even to the point of finding you to be a dangerous person. That's paradoxical. For it turns out that intelligent people -- by virtue of conscious and/or unconscious motivation -- who maintain themselves in denial of some signficant part of reality are themselves those who are most dangerous, even to the point of criminality. --- OK. .. .

Please keep doing what you are doing. It takes courage ...
