>Odd that you should write this today just as the >reknowned Daniel Dennett, professor of philosophy at >Tufts University, has weighed in on this today in >an op-ed in the New York Times. > >The Bright Stuff >http://tinyurl.com/gq0v I'll try to look that up when I can. Perhaps not so odd: We could speculate about synchronicity, the collective mind, or why the dandelions suddenly spring up all over the lawn one morning, but actually the forerunners of the idea has been kicking around for weeks -- why were so many experts ignored, e.g. -- and it's become rather apparant how dumb these people are if it occurs to one to think about it. The propaganda has been to put the hawks in a rarefied atmosphere of secret intelligence and grandiose plans -- for the mystification of us all -- but the spell of illusion has been pretty much broken, and many of the former supporters are now a even bit embarrassed (and defensive about) to realize how throroughly they were taken in. Yet, there is an urgency here, to stop the death and chaos -- to "smarten up", stop the "games", and run the warmongers out of town. ________________________________________________________________ The best thing to hit the internet in years - Juno SpeedBand!
