Cass Sunstein has failed to notice that denizens of the tubes frequently quote others whom they despise in order to mock them. It’s called balance. Here, for example, is Cass Sunstein himself:
“Momma Cass ‘Dream a Little Dream for Me'” Sunstein thinks web sites like Docudharma should volunteer or be coerced into providing links and ideas to alternative opinions to the ones being expressed by single-minded dharmavillains.
“The best would be for this to be done voluntarily,” said Sunstein, “But the word voluntary is a little complicated and people sometimes don’t do what’s best for our society,” he added.
“The idea would be to have a legal mandate as the last resort….an ultimate weapon designed to encourage people to do better,” Sunstein concluded.
For example, if I post a diary arguing that Obama has appointed a fascist dickhead to oversee the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs responsible for “overseeing policies relating to privacy, information quality, and statistical programs,” I should have to include links or countervailing information that Cass Sunstein is a famous Konstatushunel skoller uv grate reepyoot, so his head is highly unlikely to be literally full of dicks or shaped like a phallus.
I examined his cognitive infiltration proposals previously and found nothing creepy about them at all. In fact, I find his ideas are attractive accessories to our gulag of CIA black sites around the globe, warrantless wire-tapping, the assassination of US citizens by Presidential fiat, “modified Miranda warnings,” and generally treating everyone as enemy belligerents who don’t have any constitutional rights.
To be fair and balanced, I will include a link to a dissenting opinion discussing Cass Sunstein’s spine-chilling-fascist-dickhead-creepiness factor of 11 on a scale of 10.
Update: To which I add this kind of stultifying crap, too.
