There Are Worse Forces Out There Than The Aclu



One letter writer suggested that the ACLU uses First Amendment to destroy our society.

I would like to suggest that a far more powerful and destructive movement is afoot, this one known as the Christian Fundamentalist Extremist Right, which seeks to turn this nation into a CFER theocracy, dedicated, among other things, to the utter destruction of the entirety of middle-class America.

One could get a lot more worked up over this, except that if he/she thinks about the advance of technology, generally (not only information technology), it will become apparent that events before the end of this century -- namely, the Third Industrial Revolution -- will forestall the further implementation and the completion of the CFER's existing extremist plans.

America will be tested, severely. The changes will be unprecedented, but I believe that it will survive through the efforts of men and women of good will, just as it has several times before, including the time of its founding.
