This is what the United States has practiced on Black Americans for years. Their United in hating us. The World is United with them. Based on Political manipulation and Philosophy from folks like Leo Strauss. Our being United. They do know we have every right to be United against them. So programs and policy dictates that we are kept off balance, with drugs to sell, records from gangster rappers, alcohol and guns manufactured and supplied under the guise of needed protection. Drug dealers believe that if they do not use their guns they will not garner respect. But the victims are not other drug dealers, the victims are our families. THE CONSERVATIVE PARTY, THE NEO-CONS ARE USING THESE VERY TACTICS TO RUN AND RULE AMERICA. These people are seriously harming Us. Like the Native American we hope and wait. Moving to what ever area and land they chose to move us to. Later to be attacked and disbanded to keep us off balance and from prospering. Our Religion is our base. Our backbone. It is being used against us. We must take it back. Use the truth it holds and get up out of this nightmare. They call our so-called religious leaders to the White House and they don't represent us. Not in policy or in their attendance. ================== http://www.alternet.org/story/15935 Leo Strauss' Philosophy of Deception Many neoconservatives like Paul Wolfowitz are disciples of a philosopher who believed that the elite should use deception, religious fervor and perpetual war to control the ignorant masses. What would you do if you wanted to topple Saddam... alternet.org Many neoconservatives like Paul Wolfowitz are disciples of a philosopher who believed that the elite should use deception, religious fervor and perpetual war to control the ignorant masses Leo Strauss believed that the inherently aggressive nature of human beings could only be restrained by a powerful nationalistic state. "Because mankind is intrinsically wicked, he has to be governed," he once wrote. "Such governance can only be established, however, when men are united – and they can only be united against other people."[/B] At the same time, he stressed that religion was for the masses alone;the rulers need not be bound by it. Indeed, it would be absurd if they were, since the truths proclaimed by religion were "a pious fraud."
