Ol' Erik is one scary guy, there's nothing more violent and vicious than the young male, especially one who's head has been filled with shit, and a body filled with raging hormones. But who is worse, Erik or Oppenheimer? Or perhaps Truman, the guy that pulled the trigger Oppenheimer gave him? As for protecting women, maybe we should return to Camelot. Upon considering all the extraordinary number of rapes done by our fine young men in the military we can see just how much men protect the women.

Perhaps I'm old-fashioned, but in this context I M reminded of St. Paul's advice to the Corinthians:

Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted to them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience as also said the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.

Four men on TV declare what should be on the front page of newspapers about their social order. Can we give them points for organizing their coup publicly?
