Aristotle: Tolerance And Apathy Are The Last Virtues Of A Dying Society

Over 20 million Americans listened to my George Noory interview on August 11, 2008 at Over 1,500 emails arrived into my computer from that exchange. Many showed anger, others sounded frustrated, some expressed pain, many showed exasperation and a few showed great introspection!

“Continued open border policies along with violation of the rule of law will destroy all of America and all republics around the world. How do we object to this takeover? To whom do we cry out? Why isn’t each state’s sheriff or Attorney General calling forth the militia of the several states to close our borders, deport all illegals, stop the drug trade and coyotes bringing in more vermin? To whom do we go to protect us? My guess is keep your best friend ready, oiled and loaded. Thanks.”

“For what it’s worth, our society is already so unsustainable that even if the population did not increase by one single person ever, it will still crash—it is so refreshing to hear common sense from a person who is thoroughly familiar with principles of ecology that I would jump for joy were it not for the fact that our society sure seems doomed—as near as I can tell (and based on the numbers given by the various ecologists which I have read) something on the order of at least 80% of our current population is ecologically redundant. The impression is also formed that what they refer to as overshoot occurred in about the year 1890, so this to me seems like an indication of how far out on an unsustainable limb we are, having been living on borrowed or stolen resources for over 100 years now—when the freight train collides with the stone wall it’s not gonna be pretty.” Jeff in Bemidgi, MN

All day long I deal with Eastern Europeans, Iranians, East Indians, Pakistanis, you name it, as Chicago is as ever a melting pot. I get tired of not being able to communicate with the people. It pisses me off hugely when I go to the unemployment office and everyone there is an eastern European—not a soul is a straight American. Oh yeah, there’s one Haitian guy there, too.

“You guys seem to get down primarily on Mexicans and other Latinos—how come I never see you complaining about the various Europeans that come here? Believe me, they can be animals too—I listen to my downstairs neighbor (a Ukrainian dude) rough up his girlfriend every Saturday night, when he has a snoot full of booze in him. Those eastern Europeans can be sob’s. I would like to see you address this one day. I think there is a lot of racist feeling in folks getting down on Latinos, but it’s pretty apparent that in these times especially, when it is so hard to find a job and the country has been bankrupted by Bush and his friends, that it’s time to clean house. But I’d like to see
