Myths thrive on worlds of their own creation, where beliefs can persist in the face of occurrences that seem to dispel them. – Jason Sokol, There Goes My Everything, White Southerners in the Age of Civil Rights, p. 63.

And not immune to the world’s bad guys, Communists and an inscrutable rabble overseas who were duped by them, and now their designated successors, who hate us and want to destroy us for our freedom – always necessitating new gigantic weapons systems, unceasing vigilance, and fully-justified preemption with sometimes nattering and ungrateful allies which some persist in calling aggression.
