Quote of the day

"America is like a healthy body, and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality, and its spiritual life. If we [communists] can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within."
-Josef Stalin

Wow. Very apropos. I can just hear my Marxist grad professor decrying these exact three things.

Scary, actually, as we are sadly lacking in patriotism, morality, and spiritual life in the US (unless the worship of sex, self, and money qualifies as spiritual life). Let's hope Stalin is not particularly prophetic.

When I read this quote to my mom she said "isn't it funny how our enemies can see so clearly what we at home seem to miss?"
