Dissenters

 

The following individuals/groups have managed to spell out their views on the importance of 'Truth', or otherwise, as a universal civilizing category with particular reference to moral and intellectual integrity on matters pertaining to taboo topics such as 'Holocaust', Auschwitz, Middle East, Jewish-Zionist conspiracy, Revisionist persecution, AIDS, and various so-called 'conspiracy theories'.  

 

Another way of defining the term is to state that in any human enterprise, individuals get together and work out plans to achieve something. That governments and private organisations do not play with open cards is evident in the legal constraints imposed upon individuals to speak openly, and the legal locking-up of documents. Anyone who claims conspiracies do not happen is merely naive, at the worst a dissembler and a liar.

 

And then there are dissenters who are caught in the elimination mechanism that any society has available with which to discipline individuals for whatever reason and for whatever set of values. 

 

We include a selection of such individuals in this gallery of heretics/dissidents/free-thinkers who refuse/cannot submit to authority, for whatever reason. They are acting, walking, marching, dancing or singing to someone else's tune, often to a principle, to a God's command, to selfishness or altruism.

 

In most cases such individuals do not have social and legal protection extended to them by those who could help, for the simple reason that potential helpers lack the moral and intellectual courage to make a stand on someone else's behalf.

 

Persons in positions of power often suffer from failure of moral and intellectual nerve.

 

The all embracing concept of power is not helpful in explaining anything because it explains everything. The well-worn maxim: power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely, is inadequate in explaining what is going on because it is an abstraction appended to a person, an individual. Hence, 'Power' cannot corrupt, but the individual who has the power is corrupt not because of the power but because of his personal moral value system. There have been known to be rulers who were not corrupt, the mythical philosopher kings!

Historians Defend Revisionism

Letter sent to the editors of

NYT, Boston Globe, Washington Post, LATimes, San Francisco Chronicle

To the editor:

Last week, when his administration was criticized for justifying the Iraq invasion with forged evidence, President Bush accused his critics of attempting to "rewrite history." Then Ari Fleisher sneered at "revisionist historians."

As historians, we are troubled by these remarks. It is central to the work of historians to search for accuracy, and to revise conclusions that prove to be unsupported by evidence. Revision, based on fresh evidence, is a good thing. The argument about the use of misleading claims in the State of the Union address is not about revising history; it is about whether public statements were founded on honestly presented evidence.

"Against stupidity the gods themselves struggle in vain." -- Schiller

Confucius says:


When things are investigated, knowledge is extended. When knowledge is
extended, the will becomes sincere. When the will is sincere, the mind is correct.
When the mind is correct, the self is cultivated.
