Bush's "Great Leap Forward"

In the mind of an ideologue, words have the power to transform reality, to defy the laws of nature and overcome all earthly powers. Are we losing the war? Well, then, let us have more words -- a presidential speech, preferably delivered before an audience of adoring Praetorians, is enough to turn the tide. Are the insurgents gaining popular support, to the point where even the elected Iraqi government our soldiers are dying to protect has declared that Iraqis have the 'right of resistance?' Well, then, the answer is to re-name them 'rejectionists,' denounce them as 'terrorists,' and insist that we will henceforth describe them as 'enemies of the legitimate Iraqi government' instead of insurgents. As Arianna Huffington wittily put it, it's 'victory through vocabulary.' This sums up not only Bush's 'victory plan' but also the radical subjectivist mindset of the War Party. This is the essence of Bushevism -- the same radical subjectivism that worships 'revolutionary will' and led Mao to decree the creation of backyard steel furnaces during China's 'Great Leap Forward'...
