#1 Anyone suprised? The MSM still refuses to call the murderers in that Beslan school massacre 'islamic' (even when they were - to a person Muslims) or terrorists. Only 'hostage takers' or 'gangsters'.....

I'm just suprised they dont call the Iranian-supplied 'insurgents' in Iraq 'Freedom Fighters' or 'Patriots'....

#2 Denial is an often useful innate human trait. Few of us would be able to function in the present if we did not put out of mind many unpleasant realities -- such as our inevitable death.

Truly, we are living in Lovecraftian times.

I agree with Lovecraft, we certainly need not "correlate" all. Memory loss is yet another blessing in disguise, in my case at least. I believe "denial" to be quite a seperate and distinct event which must be learned, imposed, or gained through personal fear. I would suggest that Blankley's piece points to an imposed denial based upon popular egalitarian theories and ideas. Previous civilizations and generations did not subscribe to such theories, but rather preferred to call an evil just that, and deal with it. We survive today as a direct result of their (our father's) unbelief. How long we survive in the future is yet to be seen.
