When I read this letter in today's NY Times

| 1 Comment
To the Editor:

Paul Krugman ("Kansas on My Mind," column, Feb. 25) mentions that at a town hall meeting, college Republicans started chanting, "Hey hey, ho ho, Social Security's got to go!" Well, at least they are being honest about their real aim, scrapping Social Security.

Still, I can't help but be furious thinking about this. We have a deadly, very expensive war going on. The dollar is sliding. Education needs a lot of work. But all these students can think of is that they want to scrap Social Security. And they seem happy about it. Don't they have any shame? Don't they have grandparents? Don't they care about the elderly?

This has got to be the coldest, most callous thing I have ever seen.

My first response was:

The new Republican Party: It's a religion, not a political movement!

The religion is selfishness.
Ecumenical and culturally flexible, you can worship at your own altar.
First we'll thwart natural selection on every side, wipe out the predators and attack the predatious microbes; then, when our marginal gene packets have achieved centrality - back to the Darwinian cull. In an artifical environment we now control. Presto! Change-o!
