  1. 2, 3 & 4: PLEASE forgive any crankiness, but seriously, guys:

    WAKE UP!

    Tyrants aren’t fought with hugs and kisses – they’re fought by having their own tactics hurled back at them.

    The fascinating thing about Moore and The System that he fights is that the system is perfectly OK with him, as they can make money from him (this applies to all the ‘successful’ enemies of globalism/capitalism). Remember the Che Guevara poster?)

    MM has one thing going for him that the soul-less clowns in the MSM don’t: he’s a fully paid up member of the human race.

    Hyperbolic? Yeah. Boo Hoo.

  2. What bloody tyrants? We’re not living under Mugabe!

    As far as I’m concerned, the greatest enemy is not a bunch of individuals but a mode of thought – a lack of intellectual honesty, a tendency to indulge dogma and prejudice over empirical evidence, a disrespect for truth, and a resistance to self-analysis. Such a mode of thought is not defeated by indulging in exactly these sins; nor are worthwhile allies won through deceit and poor reasoning.

    I don’t bother to listen to a thing that intellectually dishonest rightwing hacks like Michelle Merkin or Ann Coulter say (except for amusement). That’s justified not by the anathema of their views but their willingness to trample all over the standards of debate.

    People on the right are perfectly justified in similarly dismissing Moore – and they do. Moore makes few converts: all he does is tar liberal ideas with the brush of his poor reasoning.

    Moore represents some of the worst intellectual traditions of the left and drowns out more worthwhile voices – thus performing much the same service for liberalism as the Fox News/ O’Reilly Factor/ WingNutDaily hacks perform for American conservatism.

  3. He has become a parody of himself. If he wasn’t if the first place. Please excuse the circular nature of the above statement.
