        Many liberals are actually avid readers, taking pride in their efforts
to
be informed.   One problem is that they seem unaware of how doctored much
of their information is.  It is mostly filtered through a leftist ideology
that
skews, deletes, and repackages facts to conform to what is transparently (to
us) a Marxist-Lennist viewpoint.  From the Daily Worker, The National
Guardian, Ramparts (now defunct), Izzy Stone,  The New Republic,  Anna
Louise Strong (the wonders of the Chinese People's Revolution), and Mother
Jones have come a legion of leftist journalists.  Many used to champion Stalin
as blindly as they now champion Clinton.  I have met many people in this
"movement."  They are as close to fanatics as you ever want to get.  What
many "liberals" who pride themselves on "being informed" do not realize is
how incredibly manipulated they have been and now are by this hard core
cadre of the left.  Fortunately some, like David Horowitz, the former editor
of Ramparts, have come to their senses.  He and the Center for the Study of
Popular Culture are now good sources for unmasking the leftist agenda.
Unfortunately, in our time, leftists, like Lamprey Eels and Zebra Muscles in
the Great Lakes, have become entrenched in the social fabric.

        Absolutely.  In disciplines and  departments in colleges across this
country, leftist liberals dominate.  Whole departments and divisions are 100%
liberal (not even a closet Republican among them).  In my visits to many,
campuses and several academic conferences each year, I observe
conservatives are as scarce as hen's teeth.  The intellectual mono-culture of
the academy  today is astounding.

        Yes, the younger generation is beginning to see its future mortgaged
to the Welfare State and it freedom to pursue individual self interest hobbled
by socialist laws and mind-set.

Sincerely,
