H.L. Mencken observed very astutely:
The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.
While reading through an old piece from Patrick Buchanan from April 2, 2010, one finds the following:
"Diplomacy has failed," Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., told AIPAC, "Iran is on the verge of becoming nuclear and we cannot afford that."
Think about today.
Replace Iran with North Korea.
It's the same script.
Mencken was right....constant alarm.
The military-industrial-complex has Americans wrapped around its finger.
