Ding Dong The Pinnochet Is Dead...

And our most Beloved VOCHAS and the wackJobs of Authoritarianism are trying to pitch him for Sainthood, since, gosh, merely killing civiians in a dirty little war is no longer the bad thing that it had been.... Since, well, everyone understands that these things can happen..... And Gosh, it is so pathetic that those Evil Libearls like Persecuiting Folks like Saddam Hussein And Pinnochet, because, well sometimes you have to slaughter a lot of civilians to keep a nation safe for authoritarianism, and the moral values of Might Makes Right....

Ah yes.... it is so pleasing to see the Nice Folks up and decide that any slaughtering of civilians is acceptable, especially if it helps advance one's strictly domestic political agenda....

Ah yes, not since folks started to learn that the Pinochet Privatization of the Chilean Social Security System turned into a Horrid FIASCO, and really should not be advocated as a basis for privatizing the American Social Security System, have we seen americans start to wonder about which side the PsuedoCons, TheoCons, Christianists, and other Conservatives without Conscience happen TO ACTUALLY be on....

What will it take for these fans of Authoritarianism to get past their Will To Power, and ponder what if there WERE an actual ethical system that was more than merely the Power That Comes From The Barrel Of A Gun????
