Dear L Goldner,
I came to your site through another link and was getting a good laugh out of what I thought was a parody site put together by a grad student with too much time on his or her hands. And then I saw how linked it was and all the work that had gone into it and I thought, “My God, this is real?”. And then I thought, “No, it can’t be”. And now I am still laughing but don’t know if I ought to be. Is this what you mean by the contradictions of capitalism?

I am puzzled by the inclusion on your “IC’s Recommended Links” page of “Californians for Vladimir Zhirinovsky,” which does not meet the usual standards of “intellectual” or “conservative.”

Subject: Your Breaking The Law

Canada law says that homophobic speach is illegal. You are breaking thelaw and the proper Canadian officials will be notified. What about the children? What about homosexual children who have to endure years of abuse at the hands of heterosexist parents? What about that?

The fight is not just beginning over this issue in the courts. The fight is over. Same sex marriage is legal in most of Canada. And the United States is signing on quickly. That book that you quote so often was written over 2,000 years ago to control the Jewish people. It is dysfuncitional and does not proscribe our laws. There is a verse in there that some should take note of though. It says “Obey the Laws Of Man.”

Aren’t Luddites those anti-technology wackos? So, which political party is it that wants to tax the Internet to death because they don’t like the idea of so much power and potential being in the hands of the private sector?

Mellow I is! I really love Luddites, they are such fun!
Try looking up Luddites in a good dictionary. It refers to anyone who rejects all ideas which do not conform to their mindset. You funny folks love technology because you control it, but you fear any philosophical idea not born out of your mostly erroneous reading of 17th and 18th century ideas. It is too bad you cannot understand Adam Smith, or more likely you never took the time to look at everything he says, only those parts which are nice quotations.

In fact you do not have two political parties, only one which disassembles itself every few years for an election.

Now, go back to sleep!

I am writing to ask why conservatives are hooked on oxymorons…for example your website name?
>From your site, “As conservatives, we stand for individual rights and responsibilities, small government, free trade, a strong national defense, moral absolutes, family values, and the sanctity of human life.”

I hope you realize that that statement has not one ounce of truth to it. Conservatism is ruling by an aristocracy, based on deceit, the destruction of democracy, reason, conscience and language. For more on this, read the history of Adoph Hitler or some history of Mussolini as to why conservatism always fails. Learn the history of conservatism before you label yourself…..you won’t be so utterly embarassed later on.

Dear Mr. “liberal militant”,

Which biography of Hitler or Mussolini are you referring to? Sure not Joachim Fests, nor Ian Kershaw’s definitive two volume set, nor John Toland’s work, nor John Lukacs. . . all are united in believin that big -even totalizing- government combined w/ demogogic leadership are a recipe for fascism! Even left wing critics such as Franz Neuman in his Beamouth are deeply skeptical of fascisms-and even socialisms tendency for the state to absorb all of civil (read: individual) society. The final work of the left wing critic Adorno is as scathing on left wing state domination as he was that of fascism.

The history of modern conservatism is closely aligned with the history of liberalism. The modern left has aligned itself with the vast extension of the state and most recently with ethnicity, which we are now finding out was what fueled the mass state phenomenas of the thirties and forties: it was the state plus German ethnic nationalism which fueled fascism. The same held true in the Soviet Union, where the state plus ethnic Russian chauvinism kept much of Asia in a state similar to serfdom.

Modern conservatives are deeply suspicious of the lefts’ embrace of ethnicity. They remain suspicous of the state. One need not focus on Hitler and Mussolini to come to these conclusions. THe 20th century is testimony to this.
