This blog used to be about politics. Not so much anymore as I have worked through my fascination with that subject. It now seems appropriate that with a new president and the end of the Bush nightmare that I move on to new subjects that are more in line with my current interests. I may still occasionally express an opinion about political matters but for the most part I will be commenting on music, photography and personal observations. Thank you for reading.

Scapegoats du Jour
"Listening to the reconquista theories, I am taken back, back, back -- back to those halcyon days when conspiracy theories were the entire raison d'etre of the far right of America's conservative movement. Which is to say, every day of the past half-century.

After all, the far right can't really exist for long without a scapegoat, an Enemy, on whom it can blame all the world's ills. It has always been so, and will always be."

Neiwert goes on to talk about a few of the historical scapegoats of the right. It seems to me that there always seems to be just another group of boogeyman lurking in the shadows to lay their hands on some pretty white girl flesh, and to take all our money.

...and evolution. (I saw this in Michael Shermer's - Why People Believe Weird Things.

"This monkey mythology of Darwin is the cause of permissiveness, promiscuity, pills, prophylactics, perversions, pregnancies, abortions, pornography, pollution, poisioning, and proliferation of crimes of all types."

- Judge Braswell Dean - Georgia Court of Appeals (Time, March 16, 1981, p. 82

But if you listen to the right wing hate mongers these past few weeks you would think that all these problems came from illegil immigrants. But, in fact, all these "problems" have existed for much longer than that. They existed back in the days when people from parts of Europe where the scapegoats as well. It existed even back in the days when it was just a bunch of white europeans killing each other for sport.

But hey, whats not to like about a good scapegroup? It keeps the blood boiling and it keeps you from realizing the real problem stems from the fact that we're human, and human beings are a flawed animal.
