Normally I wouldn't barge into IN THE MEME TYME, time so early in the week, wanting first to share some laughter and stress relief with as many others as possible...but this article spoke loudly to me, I'd been hashing the subject in my mind.
Needless to say, I agree with it's premise and I hope this leads to a lively discussion.

    He saved the best for last:

    "The interesting question, to me, is whether a man who is a moral monster can nevertheless produce sound philosophy. I think the answer is No. On the Left, it is fashionable to nit-pick great men like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Winston Churchill. But the men and women who founded what we now know as conservatism were good, if inevitably imperfect, people.

    Conversely, the icons of the Left–Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin, Fidel Castro, Che Guevara, Michel Foucault and many more–were hideously deformed and evil. I think a flawed man or woman–which is to say, a normal person–can produce sound political and social philosophy. But I think it is impossible for a moral leper like Michel Foucault to produce anything good or useful. Which helps to explain, perhaps, why today’s Left is irredeemably corrupt."

      For the same reason, I think, that a gay person can not be entirely honest because they have already been dishonest with themselves. That basic dishonesty underlies everything they do, like a computer program with a corrupted code guiding it's programing.

    Is there anyone with an opposing point of view? Anyone with a convincing argument against this observation.
    Is there any exceptions to this rule?

    Remember, we are not talking about a flawed but basically good person, we are talking about a basically bad person trying to create a good in his own view...which has already been corrupted.

    That so-called school of philosophy that Foucault and gang founded, I will show-off a bit by saying I found it weird and fallacious back over 20 years ago. Now, their hypocrisy is coming out.
