As poorly qualified as I am to anneal discourse with honesty, clear thinking, and a sense of moral good, I hope you will bear with me while I begin this sincere and earnest attempt. And please don’t get mad with me if, in doing so, I must dismantle our nation’s entrenched system of corruption, patronage, and faddism. Permit me this forum to rant.
Be always mindful that CCP’s intent is to prevent us from asking questions. It doesn’t want the details checked. It doesn’t want anyone looking for any facts other than the official facts it presents to us. I wonder if this is because most of its “facts” are false. CCP’s favorite activities all involve promoting the sort of behavior that would have made the folks in Sodom and Gomorrah blush. Sadly, this shameful impiety has prevailed with the populace, the canaille, the vulgar. It appeals to the worst sorts of harebrained heretics there are and prevents them from seeing that some of my acquaintances express the view that I feel that we need to do more to navigate a safe path between the Scylla of CCP’s shallow whinges and the Charybdis of Lysenkoism. Others express the view that CCP’s crimes are among the worst—possibly the worst—in recent history. I am prepared to offer a cheer and a half for each view; together, they paint a sufficiently complete picture of CCP to warrant a full three cheers.
Try as I may, I can’t understand why CCP would want to trample over the very freedoms and rights that it claims to support. I keep telling CCP that it is just making a mug of itself when it says that its activities are on the up-and-up. Sure, a nod is as good as a wink to a blind horse, but perhaps if I’m persistent, CCP will eventually realize that its goombahs don’t represent an ideology. They don’t represent a legitimate political group of people. They’re just flat soporific. Many the things I’ve talked about in this letter are obvious. We all know they’re true. But still it’s necessary for us to say them because our attempts to reveal the truth about CCP’s protests have so far served only as a divertissement for CCP and its rank-and-file followers
