Ernst Stavro Gorefeld, Part II

East, West, just points of the compass, each as stupid as the other. There is no East, there is no West: There is only SPECTRE. -- Dr. Julius No, the villain from the James Bond film Dr. No

Dominance is not really a strategic policy or political philosophy at all. It is a seductive illusion that tempts the powerful to satiate their hunger for more power still by striking a Faustian bargain. And as always happens - sooner or later - to those who shake hands with the devil, they find out too late that what they have given up in the bargain is their soul. -- Former Democratic candidate for President, Al Gore

This idea is quite fixed in the minds of Democrats and liberals: That there is no real "victory" possible in war, because the true enemy in war is war itself. Al Qaeda isn't really our enemy; violence is our enemy, and when we resort to violence, we become our very enemy.

They really do see all this fighting in Marxian terms: as a distraction from the "real war," which is to say, the class war, or the promotion of transnational progressivism.

And you know the funny thing? Ernst Stavro Blofeld posed as the head of an international relief agency for refugees, a well-regarded NGO similar to the Red Cross.

I always thought that was stupid as a kid. How could an evil mastermind possibly head up an international aid agency credited as being a force for good in the world?

How little I knew.

Thanks to Nick Kronos for the suggestion.
