Neo-Neocon reflects on Jonestown a href=”http://neoneocon.com/2008/11/18/jonestown-reflections-30-years-later/”on the 30th anniversary:/abr /br /blockquoteThe first relevant lesson to be learned is the danger of blindly following a charismatic leader. Jones became more deranged later on, but as his congregation grew in the 60s and 70s, he was a respected member of the San Francisco community, with connections to Democratic politicians (I’m not sure there’s any other kind in San Francisco) and a strong reputation for racial equality. br /br /The second lesson is to beware of the trust that gullible and trusting human beings can place in that charismatic leader. Jones required that people give over their lives and their assets when they became followers—a danger sign. Members had varied reasons for joining, but it can probably be safely said that most of them were exceedingly idealistic. According to the testimony of many of the survivors (a small group, but an articulate one), once they realized the true character of the man in whom they’d placed such hope and faith, it was too late. They were in a prison, subject to various forms of physical and psychological torture in Jones’ attempt to control the inmates. And in the final year before the terrible end, the prison we know as Jonestown was at least as isolated as Alcatraz, because it was located in the heart of the Guyanese jungle./blockquote
I read with interest this good advice from Ted Nugent a href=”http://rightwingnews.com/mt331/2008/11/ted_nugents_davy_crockett_rant.php”on speaking up in California and the rest of the country:/a br /br /blockquoteYou don’t need tough love in America, you need tougher love. Around the water cooler, at the church, at school. At the work place, at the picnic, and the bowling alley. You should be pounding the desk with your fist, raising hell, and take this beautiful state back from the pimps, and the whores, and the welfare brats, and the gang-bangers who seems to have all the rights in the world while the good people, the productive, law abiding people don’t have jack squat — and I think I am going to throw up./blockquotebr /br /So many people who do not support Barack Obama and are downright sick of the creeping socialism in our country are not speaking up. It is imperative to do so, even in small ways. The other day, I was at a drugstore and the clerk was talking to what looked like a Baby Boomer who was discussing how he voted for Obama. They both scoffed that not many in Tennessee voted for him, “what do you expect?” said the older guy, “this is Tennessee we’re talking about.” They both chuckled in agreement. I looked at the clerk and said in a loud voice, “So what you’re saying is those of us here in Tennessee who voted for McCain are rednecks, is that right?!!!!” There were several people milling around in line at this point and the clerk turned red and stammered, “No, ma’am,” and went on to give some lame explanation about what he meant. But I knew I had him. He was visibly shaken and I hope the next time he decides to diss Tennesseans while at work, he’ll think twice.br /br /Please remember that most people are cowards, if you speak up, they will often back down or stammer. Too many times, we let liberals get away with making fun of Republicans and those of us who do not agree with them politically. This needs to stop and the only way to do it is to speak up in the classrooms, public and at work. Remember that we are 56 million strong–those of us who did not vote for Obama. We are hardly alone.

Reader Chris sends in a a href=”http://www.pennlive.com/midstate/index.ssf/2008/11/man_pays_for_countys_mistake_i.html”pathetic story /aabout a man who was forced to pay child support for a kid even though he was not the child’s father:br /br /blockquoteWhen Walter Andre Sharpe Jr. signed for a certified letter from Dauphin County Domestic Relations in 2001, he didn’t know he was signing on for a seven-year nightmare. Since then, the Philadelphia man has been thrown in jail four times, lost his job, become estranged from his four children and spent more than $12,000 to support the child of another man. br /br /It finally stopped in May 2007 when a judge reversed a finding that he was the father. But the same judge has since ruled that Sharpe is not entitled to any compensation, not even the money he was forced to pay to support the child. /blockquotebr /br /Think this can’t happen to you? Think again. Many times, people think that these mistaken cases are few and far between until it happens to them. Paul Nathanson and Katherine K. Young in their book, a href=”http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0773528628?ie=UTF8tag=wwwviolentkicomlinkCode=as2camp=1789creative=9325creativeASIN=0773528628″emLegalizing Misandry: From Public Shame to Systemic Discrimination Against Men,/em/aimg src=”http://www.assoc-amazon.com/e/ir?t=wwwviolentkicoml=as2o=1a=0773528628″ width=”1″ height=”1″ border=”0″ alt=”" style=”border:none !important; margin:0px !important;” / point out that one of the problems inherent in our legal system is inefficiency. The authors suspect, however, that this inefficiency would not be tolerated if women suffered from it and I agree. For instance, the authors state, “Officials in Los Angeles County have admitted to going after the wrong man for child support payments approximately 350 times a month.” br /br /Women’s groups would stick up for women who suffered this type of injustice and put a stop to it. I can’t imagine things will improve in many (if any) states with the incoming administration. This is why it is so important for men’s rights activists to keep up with these issues and fight back when they can. It may be an uphill battle, but it is worth the struggle to keep innocent men like Walter Sharpe out of jail.
