Опыт психо-физиологической этиологии левой богемы
на примере левых художников.

    Этиология (от греч. aitía - причина и ...логия), причина болезни; раздел патологии, изучающий проблему причинности в медицине. В отношении ряда заболеваний установлены специфические этиологические факторы... В таких случаях говорят о специфической Э., чем подчёркивается однозначность причинно-следственной зависимости между этиологическим фактором и болезнью...

Taliban wing has captured Democratic Party

The narrow primary defeat of veteran senator Joe Lieberman in Connecticut’s Democratic primary is more than a loss for one man. It is a loss for his party and for the country. It completes the capture of the Democratic Party by its Taliban wing.

They used to be “San Francisco Democrats,” a phrase coined by former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Jeane Kirkpatrick to describe the party’s 1984 convention.

But they have now morphed into Taliban Democrats because they are willing to “kill” one of their own, if he does not conform to the narrow and rigid agenda of the party’s kook fringe.

Lieberman’s one “sin,” in the eyes of the Taliban Democrats, was that he supported the effort to defeat the insurgent-terrorists in Iraq. As a Jew, Lieberman is particularly sensitive to those who have targeted the Jewish people for extinction. But even if he weren’t Jewish, he would still “get it,” because he understands what’s at stake in the region and has correctly concluded that the consequences of American failure in Iraq would be catastrophic.

His detractors, who brought him down in the primary with a one-issue, inexperienced and unqualified candidate, Ned Lamont, hate President Bush so much that their judgment has been distorted. Former Bill Clinton aide Lanny Davis, in a recent column for The Wall Street Journal titled “Liberal McCarthyism,” printed a sample of the incendiary rhetoric directed toward Lieberman.

There is thinly-veiled anti-Semitism (“As everybody knows, Jews ONLY care about the welfare of other Jews.” posted on Daily Kos); irrationality (“Joe Lieberman is a racist and a religious bigot.” Daily Kos) and personal attack (“Lieberman cannot escape the religious bond he represents. Hell, his wife’s name is Haggadah or Muffeletta or Diaspora or something you eat at Passover.” Posted on the Huffington Post blog).

It didn’t matter that Lieberman, whose wife’s name, by the way, is Hadassah, ran as the vice presidential candidate with Al Gore in 2000, or that he has voted against most of President Bush’s domestic agenda. The Taliban wing of the Democratic Party cannot countenance any “heretics” who do not toe their line.

Though Lieberman says he will run as an independent, the damage has been done. It will be difficult for any Democrat to seek consensus with any Republican without being targeted as an infidel worthy of electoral death. Our already-poisoned political dialogue has not only been made more toxic, but contagious.

Taliban Democrats have effectively issued a political “fatwah” that warns all Democrats not to deviate from their narrow line, or else face the end of their careers through a political jihad.

Perhaps the few remaining rational Democrats should put on their burkas now and submit to the will of the party mullahs.Read more...Collapse )

Cеанс спиритизму
предлагает в эти дни своим читателям сайт 7-40.

По какому-то возможно поводу - или без его - воспроизвели там на сайте публицистическую статью Эйнштейна "про евреев".

Почему бы и нет? Сколько угодно.

Много людей об этом и до него писали да и потом по слухам случалось тоже. По сю пору пишут. В том же lj по некоторым оценкам только в виде большого исключения иногда случается кто-то про чего еще вдруг напишет. А так - если все в порядке - то в основном про них.

Словом ничего удивительного, что и Эйнштейн тоже, как оказалось, не устоял, высказался. Имеет право. Или имел. Вот тут как раз и вопрос.

Потому что подпись автора под статьей как раз и внушает ровно такого рода - непредвзятому читателю - сумления.

Конечно Эйнштейн не Перельман и нынче всем соответственно уже не до него. Однако подпись под вышепомянутой статьей ставит великого физика века минувшего в один ряд с нынешним Перельманом по уровню скромности то уж точно.

Так потому что в конце статьи - на месте авторского факсимиле - как раз и написано:

А. Эйнштейн
