A reader, TS, tipped me off to Lew’s latest fan club member, one Adam Yoshida, who has been mentioned on this blog. I read this here, and thought it was a joke site, or either that, I thought I was reading the Commandments of an escaped asylum inhabitant. But I retract, for this guy has read at least two passages from Lincoln in his lifetime, has memorized them well, and he is indeed serious. See #s 1, 2, 6, and 9 for direct Lincolnian influences.
This is a hoot, because he really does have some kind of ties to something called the “freedom institute.”
Here he says “society, and by extension the state as well, does have a place in our bedrooms, if only as a last resort. The breakdown of moral order is every bit as grave a threat as the breakdown of social order.” Why he’s a Canadian Bork-VD Hanson-Fukuyama-Lincoln in the making, with a twist of Stalin thrown in. If this is “freedom,” please, show me to the brig.8:30 pm on May 5, 2004 Email Karen De Coster
