Every culture that tries to sustain itself eventually seeks to rationalize itself in respect of some vague, higher principle or deity. Finding such higher Principle to have conferred its blessings, each culture then rationalizes justification to defend against, exclude, subjugate, and/or enslave its neighbors. The more primitive the culture, the more it scales towards subjugation and enslavement. The more secure and enlightened the culture, the more it moves along the scale, from enslaving its neighbors to defending against them. When a culture moves beyond understanding or defending against neighboring cultures, to tolerating and conferring affirmative and special privileges to them, without first requiring their assimilation, it soon commits cultural suicide. What leads a secure, successful culture to tolerate its own destruction? Answer: Too much ingestion of the stupid pill. It becomes captive to a false sense of security, forgetting that the price of liberty is eternal vigilance. The sleep walking, suicidal culture is the one that equates active inculcation of dogma of stupidity with education. Indeed, we are taxing ourselves silly in order to pay teachers to evangelize the kind of stupidity that will kill us. And now, the zombies we have stupefied are massing, coming home to roost. By now, the Tea Party well knows sociopathic opportunists will not let this crisis go to waste. It's time to recognize that the godless enemy is not interested in fairness. It's "higher principle" reduces to this: subjugation and taking the spoils. There's absolutely no reason to tolerate, much less honor, the perps and their useful idiocracy.
