Behind Obama's "HOPE" is RAGE. As Leonard Peikoffhas said in his recently released THE DIM HYPOTHESIS: WHY THE LIGHTS OF THE WEST ARE GOING OUT, Obama is an egalitarian nihilist, a product of the influence of philosopher Immanuel Kant. And "Kant," Peikoff writes, "appeals to rage." (p. 43) Maybe this is why Obama often appears to be trying to contain his rage, especially when he is speaking about successful businessmen. For those who may not know, I take part in the weekly podcast, Don't Let it Go ... Unheard. On this week's show, we discussed Obama's Islamophilic/Anti-American foreign policy, along with his Rage, but I repeat myself.
