The attitude is not that uncommon in the US -- especially in the Midwest where I am located. This illustrates what the message posted the other day about "cultural fascism" relates to: it is very much a result of the conditioning of many of the American (at least) "educational" system (what I mean when I say we get a "peasant's" education: the big mistake most of us make is to think that "we" are too smart to be conned). Please refer to the old Monty Pythons movie routine about witches floating because they are made of wood. (The Holy Grail movie, I think). I'm not sure what to say: the discussion is strange -- off topic for the casi list, but absolutely central to the sanctions, invasion and occupation of Iraq and how it was possible for the US government fool the American pubic and pull them off. ________________________________________________________________ The best thing to hit the internet in years - Juno SpeedBand!
