Good ethnographers hopefully will someday record the story of these times: mass delusions that turned a group of supposedly civil-liberty minded scholars into cheerleaders for government intrusions into privacy and warrantless or baseless searches based on intentional falsehoods, political prosecutions, marriage of a political party and corporations to stifle dissent, blatant demagogic appeals to race, ethnic and socioeconomic resentments to stir divisions for political advantage, and a steadfast refusal to acknowledge even the slightest fault on the part of their political partisans, who knowingly falsified or exaggerated to the point of untruth accusations against their political opponents, even when these accusations were proven wrong by their own standards of proof.

Perceptions, Steve? Indeed.
