Some are now beyond instruction and learning -- they know it all -- they are fanatics, jihadists, ideologues. They are the perverse retrogressions to self-made mental prisons.

I Am, Somewhere...USA

9/11 and the invasion of Iraq was undertaken by the beasts Bush/Cheney, that got their instruction from nature.

Robert, somewhere in the USA

If only we had people of reason in government  it seems we have lost our way and reason is some distant memory...

Mike, Norwalk

Some of the terms would have to be defined and clarified but, on its face  very accurate. I agree with I Am / Robert. My observation is that reason is lacking in the Progressives macabre death cult (attempting to kill the economy, true science, inalienable rights, liberty, recognition of natural law, all while committing religious sacraments such as human sacrifice to the gods of pleasure and life style). The occupying statist theocracy infesting this land also has its fascist side to the death cult. Reason, as used here, has been abandoned and lost to the transgressed patrons of the here referenced theocracy.
