  1. David, thanks for the “shout out.” No need to give credit to the knucklehead, though. 🙂

    Another interesting twist on this view–though not stated in the same terms–is the late Sam Francis’ concept he dubbed, ‘anarcho-tyranny’. He described it thus:

    “What we have in this country today, then, is both anarchy (the failure of the state to enforce the laws) and, at the same time, tyranny—the enforcement of laws by the state for oppressive purposes; the criminalization of the law-abiding and innocent through exorbitant taxation, bureaucratic regulation, the invasion of privacy, and the engineering of social institutions, such as the family and local schools; the imposition of thought control through “sensitivity training” and multiculturalist curricula, “hate crime” laws, gun-control laws that punish or disarm otherwise law-abiding citizens but have no impact on violent criminals who get guns illegally, and a vast labyrinth of other measures. In a word, anarcho-tyranny.”

    I believe he first used it, here: http://www.supremelaw.org/sls/email/box103/msg10339.htm

    To apply it to the present conversation, the U.S. has become both Unitarian (Tyrannical) and Polytheist (Anarchic) at the SAME TIME, but has lost its Trinitarian roots, which is the only way to hold the one and the many together.
