Murka Is So Fucked...

I posted at AmSam a CNN article that (unsurprisingly) reaches the conclusion that the democrats lost the election because they didn't embrace religion enough. "We have lost the ability to connect with people's value systems and we're going to have to work to get that back," said Chris Dodd, D-CT.

I'm not surprised this is the conclusion they've reached, because the Dems have increasingly and consistently drawn the wrong conclusions with every passing election. But what's even worse is that the issue is framed in terms of how to get the votes; it's framed in terms of how to market themselves so that people will purchase their product; it's framed in terms of how to out-republican the republicans.

When the putative "opposition" party can't win against an incumbent who, to name only the most obvious travesty, sends a nation's citizens to kill and die for incontrovertible lies — those very citizens who are most likely to have their beloved sons and daughters put in harm's way for the most blatant and shameless tissue of lies in modern history — then there is something deeply deeply fucked with that party. (Why citizens vote for such a liar is a different, though related, matter.) The fact that this "opposition" party draws the conclusion that it lost because it failed to wear Jesus on its sleeve as prominently as their opponents is so appalling, so wrong, so disgraceful, so disgusting that Swift, Juvenal, and Gaddis themselves would struggle to find ways to satirize this.

This is the most frightening thing I've read so far. Nothing can prove more conclusively that there is no opposition party in Murka to prevent the theocritization of Murkan society. Murka is now officially a one-party state. As et alia reminds us "wild animals hate the weak." The dems have just rolled over and exposed their necks — won't they be surprised when the republicans don't even hesitate to sink their teeth into their throats and gnaw on their raw flesh before devouring them.

You cannot cripple an opponent by outwitting him in a political debate. You can do it only by following Lenin's injunction: 'In political conflicts, the goal is not to refute your opponent's argument, but to wipe him from the face of the earth.'

The most important outcome of this position is that what the psychologist Anatol Rapoport called the confrontational style of debate is replaced by the confrontational style of the Fight. The method of debate is to acknowledge one's opponent's position in the strongest light so as to perfect one's own. By contrast, the method of the Fight is simply to wipe out one's opponent, figuratively or often, literally.
