The most important job of regime intellectuals of all stripes, besides promoting wars past, present, and future, and anything else that enhances the glory, power, and centralization of the state, is to smear opponents. Here Salon attacks Tom DiLorenzo and Tom Woods for dissenting from official history.
Of course, mullification orginates with Jefferson and Madison in 1798, not with Calhoun’s anti-tax strategy. And slavery could not have been abolished without a dictatorship and killing 600,000 people. All the other countries that got rid of this great evil peacefully are illusions.
BTW, CPAC did not invite these two great scholars to speak. All credit goes to the Campaign for Liberty. (Thanks to Norm)
