Those of you who haven't yet seen Elizabeth Nickson's piece in the National
Post might want to have a look--especially those who can write biting
Letters to the Editor. Entitled "Evil resides among us, in our hearts,"
the article begins with heartfelt (I want to put this word in quotation
marks, but to do so would be a cheap shot) personal anecdotes, but shifts
suddenly to a sweeping attack on radicals, "the child-like activists . . .
that we cradle in our country, who prosecute constant virulent attacks on
America's institutions and corporations, and who celebrate, as an
alternative, a foolish dream of a peaceable stone-age culture must use this
time to think. Their fantasy of the evils of the last 'five hundred years
of colonialism' gives permission to terrorists abroad who are truly evil,
and who use the culture of complaint on our continent to explain and
persuade others that they are right."
And it goes on, referring to the "utterly irresponsible writings of our
radical academics" . . . .
