Further talks on pragmatism & sanity

Kaveh has written about the mentality of his fellow harvard students:-

In a political discussion in the common room of my dormitory, i was nearly lynched for asserting the "absurd" and "preposterous" "conspiracy theory" that the war in iraq was not about weapons of mass destruction. i was almost crucified for suggesting that it might have been about oil, and that certain oil interests in the white house have benefited from the war.

somehow, they had not heard that the world was in an uproar against this war. they had missed the massive protests everywhere around the globe.

He finds it tragic that some of these best & brightest students will be the policy makers of US tomorrow.

Now, thats a dangerous sign.
