From the August 2005 Idaho Observer:
The Politics of Creative Destruction
"The Politics of Creative Destruction," an article by Chris Moore, shows that the neoconned U.S. government is intentionally creating chaos in the world.
"Creative destruction is our middle name, both within our own society and abroad. We tear down the old order every day, from business to science, literature, art, architecture, and cinema to politics and the law. Our enemies have always hated this whirlwind of energy and creativity…They must attack us in order to survive, just as we must destroy them to advance our historic mission," wrote neocon Mike Ledeen in his 2002 book "The War Against the Terror Masters."
Former Wall Street Journal reporter Ron Suskind met with a senior adviser to President Bush. Recalling the meeting in the Oct. 17, 2004, edition of The New York Times, Suskind wrote:
"The aide said that guys like me were ‘in what we call the reality-based community,’ which he defined as people who ‘believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality.’ I nodded and murmured something about enlightenment principles and empiricism. He cut me off. ‘That’s not the way the world really works anymore,’ he continued. ‘We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality – judiciously, as you will – we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors … and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.’"
