Bombing other countries is totally a-okay


but if a presidential candidate doesn’t personally believe in evolution then *gasp* I can’t bring myself to vote for them. That’s un-scientific

…I submit that there’s a strong positive correlation between our bomb-happiest – and most otherwise grossly flawed, be it social engineering hubris, economic voodoo, or whatever else – governments and the number of people in them willing to ignore the coquetries of objective reality.

It’s a different kind of reality-faking, sure, but I’m willing to make an inductive stretch and generalize the principle.
