The perfect metaphor for utopian dreamers

If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. No matter how high the bodies pile up.
Interesting how the anointed left can polish the mirror, but can't see their own reflection within it...

Well they can't see it because that brick wall is not just the other guy's share of human folly but is the dream of a guarantee of righteousness, a hoped for transcendnce, not unlike that of Pharaoahs building pyramids on the remains of schmucks who were too dumb to survive at their games and had to go serve in "the quarries of Iraq".

I saw Tony Blair on the news today, going on about how "yes we are against capital punishment, but isn't it a great thing that the Iraqis are able now to punish their own". Seems like many people can't miss an opportunity to be holier than thou, they even have to question whether Saddam deserves to be killed.

So Tony has to pander to that huge mass who can't miss an opportunity to pronounce they are more righteous than the killer Americans. Even when one of the most evil of men is front and centre, they have to show how much better they are than us and him. But this it almost to say that Saddam is not just quantitatively more evil than the anointed, he is a whole other class of person - he can kill millions but we are too good to touch him and give a nod to ordinary folks' conception of justice. The anointed would rather keep the bastard alive and allow Baathists to dream of a restoration than give Iraqis the umistakable sign of turning the page. What contempt Western liberals must merit among the world's tough guys (not to mention the truly humble and obedient to the word of God). How much encouragement they must give to those who would send cars and brick walls flying our way, and discouragement to those who might fight to stop them.
