And this is an extremely dangerous moment, becauseit repudiates freedom, it repudiates democracy,it denies us both of those. It repudiates any form of justice. It is a kick in the teeth for the poor. It has nomerit whatsoever except to enhance the wealth and thepower of the governing elite, and that really what we’re seeing here is a conspiracy of the governing class against the governed. And if the governed continues to be as passive, and acquiescent, and as unquestioning as too many of them are being in Europe (it’s a little better in the States), then this faction is going to get its way, and when it gets its way, we shall realize that it’s far too late for us to do anything to throw it into reverse.
