In becoming pragmatic, they become ineffectual.
I had the chance to interview Jimmy from Brooklyn, an anticommunist activist and researcher with expert knowledge on the Communist Movement. Jimmy appears on many talk radio shows, offering pearls of wisdom about communism. It was pleasure to hear him explain, in detail, how the communists operate.
The books he carried were all thick and weighty, works worthy of an intellectual leftist – H.G. Wells, Marx, Marx and Engels, George Bernard Shaw. I cannot recall exactly. Clearly, Lee wanted it known that he did not waste time on light reading.

He was the right man, and he was prepared to do it. He was prepared to do a lot of things. It would have made no sense to contact him otherwise. His motive was bitter resentment.

What we see today is a kind of madness, a kind of intellectual breakdown, appearing on all sides. In Tucker Carlson’s interview with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., we encountered this breakdown in the unthinking conspiracism of a Democratic presidential candidate. And now, with the Republican presidential debate of last Wednesday, we saw evidence of a breakdown on the Republican side. At the same time, President Trump’s conversation with Carlson (broadcast on Wednesday) struck a different note. Trump appeared to be sharp, sane, and sensible – even though his allegations of election fraud in 2020 are believed by less than one in three voters.
The best religion is communism.
Lee Harvey Oswald [i]
Socialism is a fake, a comedy, a phantom, and a blackmail.
Speech in Milan, 22 July 1919
Our disease is democracy. It is not the skin that festers – our very bones are carious, and their marrow blackens with gangrene.
The abnormal man, the damaged man, Lee Harvey Oswald, said, “The best religion is communism.” The disillusioned communist-turned-fascist, Benito Mussolini, said socialism “is a fake, a comedy, and a blackmail.” More than a century earlier, the great spokesman of the Federalist Party in America, Fisher Ames, said that democracy is “our disease.” All three of these quotes reflect the same problem; namely, our obsession with false ideas and false narratives. Soren Kierkegaard said that the present age began with understandings and reflections leading to a mighty leveling tendency. “In order that everything should be reduced to the same level,” he wrote, “it is first of all necessary to produce a phantom, its spirit, a monstrous abstraction, an all-embracing something which is nothing, a mirage – and that phantom is the public.”[ii]
Whatever one may make of the above observations, I in any case believe the evidence is quite strong that elements of the U.S. government and the governments of other nations have been doing all they can to implant the idea of the reality of UFOs as extraterrestrial spacecraft in the public mind, while simultaneously debunking this belief.”

Congressional hearings on the UFO/UAP matter have taken place, and members of Congress have expressed surprise at the bipartisan nature of the hearings. Evidently the prospect of extraterrestrial visitation is the only thing that can bring Americans together.

The right and left are coming together under strange circumstances: Congressional hearings on the UFO/UAPs. Members of Congress have expressed surprise at this fact. It seems the prospect of intruders from outer space is the only subject that brings us together.
