Notes For Converts

Via the ever more reclusive and Hughesian Paul Sellars:

Your ideas and your policies have promoted selfishness, greed, short-term solutions, bullying, and pain for others. You have looked in the faces of children and denied the existence of a “common good”. You have disdained and denied the idea of “altruism”. At one time, our bureaucracy was full of people who had gone into government service or scientific research for altruistic reasons–I knew, because I knew some of them. You have driven them out and replaced them with vindictive ignoramuses.

The article is basically an attack on prominent right-wingers who originally supported the illegal invasion of Iraq but are now changing their positions. I don’t believe this change of heart is based on any moral pangs: knowing the history of some of the little Hitlers that the article lambasts, I’m inclined to believe it’s simply because the US hasn’t yet managed to win the war with its blitzkrieg tactics.

I’m sure if they had, these PNAC scumbags would be crowing about how right they were all along.
