Ideology makes people blind. Reason disappears, balance is lost. Only the tribe remains; my god and my tribe, to the hell with the proofs, the reason, the logic. A mere redneck mob mentality, based on fear, violence and xenophobia; us against those not-like-us. It is difficult to find a people who can have that unusual intellectual integrity, those relatively rare people who can change their minds when the evidence demands it.
I'm sorry folks, I'm just raving, as usual. Guess the idea that all that history could be destroyed in one mad moment of illogic is irking me.
