What Ever Happened to Question Authority?
By Nick Sorrentino | AgainstCronyCapitalism.org
There was a time in this country when the Left, or at least parts of the Left, really did question authority. Abby Hoffman, the Diggers, Berkeley free speech. What happened?
For instance, yesterday Chris Rock, once an irreverent comedian, told America to listen to its Dad. By which he meant president Obama. He also said that the President was our boss.
Our Boss?Listen to Dad? This is still America right?
Dont question authority. Follow authority. Do what you are told. So what if this president has given himself the authority to assassinate US citizens. Dont question. Obey.
In the attached article Daniel Henniger asks also where the spirit of rebellion has gone. Where did the Lefts (at least what was once called the New Left) healthy fear of a centralized state go?
Years back, a popular notion among liberal thinkers was something called imperial overstretch. This was the idea that Americas far-flung foreign-policy commitments could bankrupt the country. Mr. Obama believes this, and before Chuck Hagel started talking the other day, he was supposed to explain it. In his State of the Union speech next Tuesday, Mr. Obama will say again that Washington, after Iraq and Afghanistan, needs to invest at home. But isnt the federalization of pretty much everything in a diverse country like the U.S. just another exercise in imperial overstretch?
