"So says a slave of the demon god allah."
He seems to be paying tribute to Thrasymachus as well. Under the Sophistic guile of this statement lies the irrefutable fact that not one of the "we" to whom he refers has ever been a slave.
In fact our greatest sin has been gifting that "we" with the biggest free ride that any group in America has ever received.
No doubt the ease with which they have been allowed comfortable subsistence and unearned admission to the best schools has cheapened their experience of "success" and exacerbated the feeling that somehow they have missed out on some of life's best but hardest lessons.
Cheap rhetoric, false gods and gratuitous comfort. No plantation shackle was ever so effective at binding the human spirit.

Exactly. Like I said in a previous post, I lost a lot of family in the Holocaust, but that certainly doesn’t grant me the right to call myself a Holocaust survivor.
