Jack Hunter at Taki's Mag ~ writing as the "Southern Avenger" ~ calls a spade a spade in this insightful editorial piece posted to YouTube.
"War has all the characteristics of socialism most conservatives hate: Centralized power, state planning, false rationalism, restricted liberties, foolish optimism about intended results, and blindness to unintended secondary results." -- Joseph Sobran
I would add to Sobran's laundry list the characteristic of a severe restriction of that fluid which makes good societies run well, the milk of human kindness. Compassion is in short supply under war conditions.
I am so tired of the old political game of good Republican/Bad Democrat - Good Democrat/Bad Republican. Whenever authorities play good cop/bad cop the people usually wind up getting screwed. The most unholy alliance of the past 50 years has been the marriage of totalitarian communist ideologue society (China) with international mega-corporations. Caveat emptor.
