These people are out of touch with the real world -- which is what makes them dangerous. After all, Hitler was -- in a very true sense -- also out of touch with the real world, and look at what he wrought. One sentence (out of many) that shows just how out of touch these guys are is this: "The people's assemblies will continue with or without winter encampmants." That sounds like Washington speaking about his troops at Valley Forge. Or take that sentence about floating like butterflies and stinging like bees; these effete punks actually see themselves as latter-day Mohammed Alis. The same grandiosity, the same sense of historic purpose, of doing destiny's work, runs through just about everything these guys write or say. They're in the grips of a utopian delusion, a pie-in-the-sky fantasy. Anyone who doubts that such people are dangerous need only read Norman Cohn's "The Pursuit of the Millenium." Scary.
