Republican Marxists? "For more than two centuries, revolutionaries, radical leftists, insurrectionary terrorists, and Marxist academics have proudly claimed the Jacobin heritage as theirs. Secretary Rice's Paris speech demonstrates that the "conservative" Bush administration has joined the Jacobin ranks. An even more forceful acknowledgement of that heritage came from President Bush's second inaugural address:

"Our country has accepted obligations that are difficult to fulfill, and would be dishonorable to abandon. Yet because we have acted in the great liberating tradition of this nation, tens of millions have achieved their freedom.... By our efforts, we have lit a fire as well -- a fire in the minds of men. It warms those who feel its power, it burns those who fight its progress, and one day this untamed fire of freedom will reach the darkest corners of our world." [Emphasis added.]

Perhaps unbeknownst to Bush himself, the "liberating tradition" he invoked is Jacobin, not American. The phrase "fire in the minds of men" served as the title of a book by Librarian of Congress James H. Billington: Fire in the Minds of Men: Origins of the Revolutionary Faith. The first prophet of that revolutionary "faith," Billington documents, was Adam Weishaupt, founder of the Bavarian Illuminati, an occultic organization that, working through front groups and surrogates, did much to bring about the French Revolution....."
