I’m a bit slow, but I’m finally seeing the pattern. I started watching Oliver Stone’s JFK, (see Rothbard’s review), and it struck me… The “lone-nut theory”, it’s not just an occasional explanation, it’s a way of life for the Establishment. Let’s see:
- JFK was assassinated by: A Lone Nut
- Reagan was shot by: A Lone Nut
- 9/11 was perpretrated by: Crazy terrorists who, inexplicably, hate our freedom. (This had nothing to do with previous U.S. interventions in the Middle East as William Kristol explained to me).
- The prisoners in Iraq were tortured by: 7 “bad apples”.
As C. S. Lewis foresaw, charges of mental illness have become the modern answer to everything and the modus operandi of the State. There are no causes or effects, merely to think there are is to engage in irresponsible conspiracy-mongering. There are just some nuts who won’t get with the New Order.1:22 pm on May 14, 2004 Email Stephen W. Carson
