7. man.....I was just about to post this...he's a REAL fascist...
can't come much closer than shouting it, can you?

Michael Ledeen though may be the signal source to beware: his books included Universal Fascism, Freedom Betrayed, and The War Against the Terror Masters. Here is a taste of Ledeen:

>>>from Ron Paul: Ledeen believes man is basically evil and cannot be left to his own desires. Therefore, he must have proper and strong leadership, just as Machiavelli argued. Only then can man achieve good, as Ledeen explains: "In order to achieve the most noble accomplishments, the leader may have to enter into evil. This is the chilling insight that has made Machiavelli so feared, admired and challengingwe are rotten," argues Ledeen. "Its true that we can achieve greatness if, and only if, we are properly led." (Ibid.)

Ron Paul analyzes this as meaning, "In other words, man is so depraved that individuals are incapable of moral, ethical and spiritual greatness, and achieving excellence and virtue can only come from a powerful authoritarian leader." Paul then asks what we all should be asking today, "What depraved ideas are these to now be influencing our leaders in Washington?" (Ibid.)

"Lying is central to the survival of nations and to the success of great enterprises, because if our enemies can count on the reliability of everything you say, your vulnerability is enormously increased....Look at the map of the world: national boundaries have not been drawn by peaceful men leading lives of spiritual contemplation. National boundaries have been established by war, and national character has been shaped by struggle, most often bloody struggle."

--Michael Ledeen

you couldn't be more correct about Ledeen, AND his hideous wifey wife

remember the role they played in Blinded By the Right?
