What Was Left Out of the Analysis

Butler Shaffer at LewRockwell.com - why Ron Paul is so popular, amongst the living, and so misunderstood by those who depend on the soul-killing parasitic state.

This is the message the established order does not want people to hear, accompanied by the kinds of questions it does not want asked. For just as it is impossible to un-invent nuclear power, it is impossible to un-ask questions. This is what the institutionalists fear about Ron Paul: it is tolerable to suggest that the emperor is naked - that, after all, can be corrected by a subsequent election – but not the empire itself!

There is a peaceful, decentralizing revolution going on not only in America, but in the rest of the world. For lack of a better explanation, I think of the energies driving this as emanating from a life force in nature that resists its own destruction. We have been able to tolerate the kinds of foolishness that arise from the "extraordinary popular delusions and madness of crowds" that often beset us. Life is resilient enough to avoid many of the adverse consequences of fantastic thinking, much as creative businesspeople are able to circumvent even the goofiest of government regulations.
