neocons peddle 'Shock & Awe' - the sequel, on campus

Nothing less than full spectrum dominance will do for these madmen.
On Oct. 16, 2006, with the mid-term election less than three weeks away, and time slipping away for a Bush-Cheney Administration "October Surprise" military strike against Iran, a speaker told students at the University of California at Los Angeles (UCLA) that a genocidal attack against Muslims was required to generate "a resurgence in the pride for Western civilization."

[T]he speaker, Dr. Yaron Brook, the executive director of the Ayn Rand Institute (ARI), warned that "Islamic totalitarian states pose a severe threat to the security of the United States," adding that a way to defeat these regimes "is to kill up to hundreds of thousands of their supporters." This, he said, would "shrink popular support for extremist ideas to a small minority of the population," instead of the 40% which he claims supports such regimes now.

While some might wish to dismiss this as the demented rant of a lone madman who was, perhaps, off his meds, the reality is clear to anyone who has read the LaRouche PAC's latest pamphlet, "Is Joseph Goebbels on Your Campus?" Dr. Brook and his ARI are an integral part of the "war party" run by the Vice President's wife, Lynne Cheney, and are deploying to America's campuses to whip up support for new imperial wars, while intimidating their opponents with tactics which would make Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels green with envy.

Brook's presentation was sponsored by LOGIC (Liberty, Objectivity, GREED, Individualism, Capitalism), an ARI-linked organization at UCLA, which also has ties to the right-wing "Collegiate Network" of "conservative" campus throwaway newspapers. The UCLA affiliate is the Bruin Standard, whose editor is LaRouche-slanderer Garin Hovannisian, a protege of David Horowitz, who is one of the coordinators of Lynne Cheney's campus Gestapo. (See EIR, Oct. 20, 2006.)

It is this network of money-grubbing, self-promoting liars which is recruiting the shock troops for the Cheney-John Train imperial war party . . .
If you think the worst is over, think again.

If things feel calm, it's only because something is brewing on the horizon.

Am I suprised that these kind of comments are coming out of the Ayn Rand Institute? No, not all. What else could one expect from that bullshit, asinine, immature philosophy of objectivism of which the main underlying principles are greed and self-interest. My 2-year old is further along in human behaviorable development than adherents to that "philosophy", I use the term loosely. A clash is inevitable with people of this ilk, because they trample upon too many people in attempting to satisfy their insatiable greed.

I think you mean 'philosophy of SUBJECTIVISM'

Objectivity keeps a person grounded in reality, not self-serving illusions.

But, yes - I agree completely. A clash with that type of mentality is inevitable because everything always revolves around them and they always want what is not theirs.

Dr. Brook spoke at my campus w/ David Horowitz on a panel dealing with the Mohammad cartoons. I am atheist and support freedom of speech virtually unconditionally. The event was sposored in part by the campus Ayn Rand club (the Objectivists). Dr. Brook essentially stated ("essentially" is NOT a weasel word - I do not remember the exact quote - but I took notes) that Israel has the right to pre-emptively murder (he used "kill") anyone it feels will cause it trouble ("cause it trouble" covered as broad a definition as you can imagine). He declared that his integrity as a Jew and an Israeli justified his donning the mantle of judge, jury and executioner. The Ayn Rand group seems heavily funded as it came out of nowhere to put on noteable (and costly events - I know) on a regular basis. Their event themes would largely fall under the category of 'atheists for Israel and rapacious corporatism'. They have not as of yet co-sponsored with the other atheist group as there are those within it that see Israel (and corporate greed)in a clearer vein. I think Zionists are hedging their bets by creating a linkage with rationalism just as certain corporate whores have.
