I'm a fellow who has moderate leaning tendencies in most things. I try to find the common ground and an equitable solution.
But I look at such works by the Discovery Institute, David Barton's "Wall Builders", The Texas School Board...
and I see no common ground. I see an enemy that seeks the annihilation of any opposing thought. An enemy that wishes to do great and deliberate harm to the American people for one purpose only; the pursuit of further power and wealth at the expense of the everyman.
I've always found the term; "Demon Possessed" to be silly and fantastic.
But watching these groups at work, I begin to see how it came about. There is a comfort in assuming that humanity is NOT capable of doing great, deliberate evil, that some external force is responsible.
