    In the world view of relativists what's "right" and "wrong" is cynically reduced to "whatever set of mainstream values supports and maintains the corporomilitary machine of the fascisti." So to be truly "right" by the relativist definition of morality, the notion of which is actually a bit oxymoroic, our values SHOULD BE detrimental to the coporomilitary machine of the fascisti.

    And this curious inversion occurs in relativists, even at the most personal level of their lives. Hence, a nearly perfectly upside down view of the world is accompanied by self hatred.


    As Sean and Rush say," What's bad for america, is good for democrats." It's very freakin true.

    Consider the following exchange.

    The Lib: You just think that's right because that's what benefits you!

    Me: (Sarcatically) I guess if I were truly enlightened, I would only do things that were bad for me.

    The Lib: (Storms away in a fugue state of cognitive dissonance.) You're a nazi!
