Welcome- Eyes Open to the Truth

Who are “The Traitors Among Us”?

A free society, by its very nature, tolerates those who at base hate it and want to destroy it. The obviously fanatical and extreme are merely distractions, as long as they don’t become actively violent. They might be said to be victims of Herbert Marcuse’s “repressive tolerance”- if you’re free to advocate revolution and everybody just ignores you, it almost hurts worse than being beaten with a rubber hose by a secret police goon. Almost- Islamofascists still prefer London to Damascus, and not just for the fine dining.

These people hardly concern us though. The real traitors are those who are not openly opposed to the ideals of a free society, but those who claim to be the promoters of its highest ideals, while undermining it at every turn.

So, who are the traitors among us? We will examine this in some detail, but we will start at the very beginning. Marlow always started at the very beginning, and the best stories always do.

About thrasymachus33308

I like fast cars, fast women and southern-fried rock. I have an ongoing beef with George Orwell. I take my name from a character in Plato's "Republic" who was exasperated with the kind of turgid BS that passed for deep thought and political discourse in that time and place, just as I am today. The character, whose name means "fierce fighter" was based on a real person but nobody knows for sure what his actual political beliefs were. I take my pseudonym from a character in an Adam Sandler song who was a obnoxious jerk who pissed off everybody.
