The Oregon Standoff and the Need for Good Lawyers - The Atlantic

Their program for federal land is dangerous—the end of federal stewardship, or even a radical cutback, would be catastrophic for Western lands. Their constitutional theory, too, is toxic. It has evolved out of the semi-literate, overtly racist theories of Mormon extremist W. Cleon Skousen. In essence, it proclaims the sovereign prerogative of white Christian men to take what they want and justify it in the name of an imaginary "organic Constitution" untainted by equality for women, nonwhites, immigrants, or religious minorities. I despise everything the Malheur occupiers claim to stand for.

Damage to the frontal brain impairs our ability to generate these explanations, so the brain defaults to a cruder, less precise way of understanding the world around us. - See more at: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/epiphenom/2016/01/a-sense-of-mystery-results-from-the-brain-failing-to-shut-down-flights-of-fancy.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+BhaScienceGroup+%28Blog+-+Epiphenom%29#sthash.jxdm3Vz0.dpuf
