I'm slightly afraid of letting this book become my primer on everything that people on the far right do and think, but it just seems so appropriate sometimes. Honestly, these people are just plain immune to reason. I would like someone, anyone, on the right to cite to me an example from history wherein a leader of a nation or state was granted as much authority as he desired and the freedom to operate in complete secrecy, which turned out well for the people he ruled. Just one. I'll wait.
P.S. Bonus "Family Guy" excerpts at Glenn Greenwald's blog, if you're into that sort of thing.
