Followup on the Rune Soup post

Rasa has been posting comments at the Rune Soup post I blogged about the other day.

You can read Rasa's comments for yourself, but notably he's trying to pin down Gordon White on what Gordon is referring to specifically when he complains about "boot licking" RAW fans and the "lies" they have spread. I'm puzzled too; without specifics, I can't really tell what Gordon is talking about, or even attempt a comment. 

Rune Soup is both a blog and a podcast; Gordon White also has written books. I enjoyed reading The Chaos Protocols. I haven't read his others.

Nice rational comments by Rasa over there. Like much rhetoric on the internet today White appears unable or unwilling to communicate and debate without insults. The insults invalidate any point he attempts to make.

I found it ironic that the RAW quote White chose and disparaged begins: "evidently because some flatlanders insist on classifying me as Leftist and others, equally Euclidean, argue that I am obviously some variety of Rightist..."

I wish him success.

Also this quote "The individual act of obedience is the cornerstone not only of the strength of authoritarian society but also of its weakness." is from Hagbard Celine's book Never Whistle While You're Pissing in Illuminatus!, so taking it out of context and also applying it solely to RAW seems misleading.
