To the List - and to Gate-crashing "Guest", Darin. As even the most naive of us should know, this List is subject to infiltration. A while ago, one visitor was, almost certainly, an agent of the Israeli government. This time, someone from the far right, possibly of fascist persuasion. Even Elga, who ought to know better, in a display of almost 'saintly' tolerance, is partly, taken in: "You have actually done extremely well on CASI." Perhaps, though, we are offered a learning opportunity, however unpleasant the challenge. To someone of Darin's 'persuasion', concepts such as 'peace' or 'love' are luxuries we can do well without. What values, then, would he approve of? It doesn't take a genius to work out what the opposites of love/peace are. Having, accidentally, slipped onto this site on a banana skin, he makes it clear that he cherishes warfare, is anti-NGO, anti-UN, anti-peace movement, anti-intellectual, anti-Communist, in fact, anti- just about everything, including manners. I don't know whether he is deranged (I'm no psychiatrist), but wouldn't preclude it. He is, most certainly, seriously disturbed and may hold fellow humans in utter contempt. Then, whether as an angry loner, or as organised representative of some shady, far-right/fascist movement, his real agenda, despite some giveaway clues, is nothing if not hidden. Darin may hate Joseph Stalin, Adolph Hitler, Saddam Hussein & Pol Pot (of Cambodian 'Year Zero' notoriety), but - in a wider sense - he is, very much, in league with all of these, and others. Does Darin get his 'inspiration' from "Unite with the Right" publications, such as 'FrontPage Magazine' ("Zionism is a national liberation movement" or a left-wing group is accused of "condescendingly implying that our President is dumb, a warmonger and an imperialist.")? By the way, 'FrontPage' has an article denouncing Leslie Cagan! - My feeling is that if Darin's associates/leaders drummed into him that the population of the Canary Islands were a dangerous threat, he would implicitly follow, and see it as his sacred duty to combat those forces of evil on the accursed Canary Islands. We need to be alert to the Darins, of this world, who - in various guises - appear, from time-to-time, on this site. We should never be caught off guard by their agent provocateur tactics, nor take the bait held out by them, bearing in mind their destructive motivations. Finally, some "dingbat" words of advice to Darin (which he may sneer at - I hope not): search your own mind, question your own, deeply embedded, dogmas, then see if you can take interest in the pursuit of truth, rather than the usual bullshit. Unless you'd rather persist in remaining a curse to the world, and - not least - yourself. Don't, ever again, allow all your hurts & pains, from the past, to corrupt & warp your mind! Today, as they say, is the first day of the rest of your life!
