On “The Hebraic Heidegger (Another Discussion Not To Be Held)

there is no doubt on the subject Von Braun, Fertwangler, et al have all been judged, but as with DeMan, it's interesting how their wartime influences don't filter into their desire to destroy the meaning of truth, which is how I regard deconstruction,

"

He was wretched Nazi scum, capische, or whatever German words fit,
A little more sophisticated then the main character who put together the protocols, the tale of which is relayed in Eco's the Prague Cementery, of that there is no doubt, anymore that Haj Amin Husseini's collaboration with the 3rd Reich, of course that last would get in the way of Judis's narrative, if he lived in Egypt he would have worked for Pharoah, in Persia for Haman, in Czarist Russia, a wrangler for Trepov and Ignatiev,

On “Open Thread

that's possible, although Jeri Ryan's appearance, however brief, might have been another sign, Anyways Continuim will be back next week,

"

btw, what did you think of the ending to Helix,

"

A little over a month ago, when the conventional wisdom was he would not invade,

"

yes, how did the bluff theory, work out the last time;

"

Well it is, the writer Weisberg, says he based on two of the members of the Chapman ring, but more likely it was a couple like the Koechers, who were STb not KGB, but who worked underground,

It's been perfectly logical, what Volodya's long game has been, he's even willing to endure a little slippage, with the long term prospects of a Greater Russia,

"

No there was a choice, if Wallace had become President, instead of Truman, personnel is policy, the soft left has been very willing to entertain retreating from Western Europe entirely,

"

Of course, the Ukraine is a mess, you think the Holomodor, leaves no lasting scars, Crimea is just the appetizer, if he follows the czarist playbook, there's much westward that he'll want to take,

Now whether we want to bail out Europe a fourth time, that is an open question,

On “Order of orders: possibly last comment on Brooks-Schmitt, this one not posted at CT

Yes, it's a stretch to paint the US, in such a lurid light, maybe in a Mirror Universe, where James Byrnes, became President, after the fall of Truman, due to the backlash from the invasion of the Japanese homeland, where he meted out a Melian punishment,

On “2nd Comment on “David Brooks: Better in the original German” (Schmitt and the neo-imperial moment)

Ok, that doesn't compute, economic and health policy, have been in their wheelhouse,

"

In that sense, 2012 was an Occupy election, but the coalition it brought to power, was too fragile, for the project they intended, hence the collapse of gun control and other regulation,s

"

Weimar was except for the 1923 period, typified by progressive social policy, and rather loose economic policy, Smoot Hawley did away with the latter, forcing Bruening's Hunger Chancellor austerity, and disrupted the former, the Godwinism really doesn't apply here, except in the way that the left, the analogs of the Occupy Movement, did try to destroy the center Social Democrats,

"

Ah your first mistake was to take David Brooks seriously, it could just be gas, it will pass and he will still be incoherent,

On “Open Thread

As if Medea Benjamin had not already been an apologist for those regimes like the Castro Bros, and people who kill civilians on purpose, say in an Sbarro, frankly I'd send her to Syria, see how long she'd last over there.

"

No, it's not I understand perfectly well why Putin is doing, it's like pain is a helpful indicator something is wrong, so is recognition that this policy has failed,

"

Well we saw this movie, nearly six years ago, at the time she thought the 'reset' was warranted,

"

the link at 9;19, doesn't work, I prefer to take it from the perspective of the Ukraine, and other subjugated peoples like the Nochi, the Ingush,

"

Four years into the REvolution, the verdict was clear, the Terror had ended, and the Directory had come into being,

"

Ok, so you're going Mao, when asked about the French Revolution 'too soon to tell'

"

The Arab Spring didn't turn out how you thought either,

"

Well the Dems trust Volodya, more then the Tea PArty, who they regard like the Maidan,

"

Waterloo was at the tail end of a decade long Continental conflict, we may end up there, but Edward Lucas's protracted scenario is more likely

"

there is no cause and effect, after five years, yes Holland does bring up Balaclava and Sevastapol, but as with the Japanese war, half a century later, and World War one, a generation later, it did weaken Russia, of course we're not considering anywhere that robust an action,
