That Mr. Greider writes so effectively and beautifully, and that his prose contrasts so starkly with the Big Government Collectivist views that he spouts, just reaffirms the maxim that liberals should be placed in charge of conceiving of good intentions, and nothing else.
Does Mr. Greider even realize that he has the freedom to espouse his claptrap only because our forefathers took this land and its resources, at gunpoint, from the Native Americans that originally inhabited it? A people who, by my accounting, possess all the values called for by Mr. Greider in his new master race of enlightened humanity.
The very least that Mr. Greider could do to contribute to humanity would be to write some excellent fiction, instead of subjecting us to the wanton hubris that fills his pulpit of sanctimony, to coerce people to live their lives in a particular way, all in the name of the Greater Good.
