Response to Laura PourMeADrink (Reply #48)

49. Sure. We should invent methods that have the punch and force

of classic fascist tactics but somehow still be right and good. We hear frustration that we don't constantly here.

We're tied to truth and principles, though. Often people don't yet know what truth is, requiring faith and conviction that it exists to enable continued commitment.

Meanwhile, the right's constant big lies are created to deliver their immediate forceful punch at our convictions while being as simple and entertaining as The Inquirer. No guts or conviction required of that audience. Just ears to take in outrageous lies. And for their attack dogs, mouths to repeat them and fists to wave.

One truth we do know is that over 40 years they've gotten scary-good at it. Real pros.
