Dittohead, even if it is oppinion, the site still continously points out what polotitions said, what the suprime court ruled, etc. If it is not at least somewhat factual based, then how do they cite court cases, government documents, and congressional records? In “The Bankruptsy of the U.S.” article, did the author just make up the opening statement, where in 1993 the Speaker-Representative James Traficant, Jr. said that the U.S. Government was bankrupt?
Don’t get me wrong. The site may be very much tainted by certain opinions, so not everything should be blindly accepted … but saying that it has absolutely no merrit almost seems equally unwise. I do not know whether everything is true or not – further investigation would be necissary for that – but saying that it is nothing without even looking at what they had to say…
I am not saying that I am anti-government, or whatever. It’s just that, perhaps, people do not pay anough attention to how the government is really set up and what they are doing. Whether somebody thinks it is absolutely true or not does not mean a little interest is harmful. Maybe the site’s author did get a little carried away – comparing the U.S. government to Communism for example. Maybe he is wrong for saying that the government is as bad as it is, but what has happened in history still happened.
I’m not exactly sure what I’m trying to say, except preaching what the site says might be dangerous, but so might be entirely disregarding anything that is said. In all reality, what I have read would in no way effect my behaviour or thought pattern, because there are certain ideals that I personally belive are more important than any human government.
