Cass Sunstein, Most Dangerous Man In America

I've claimed elsewhere that Cass Sunstein may well be the most dangerous man in America. (Progressives are always more dangerous when they are the most sincere and scandal free.) Here is more evidence, from Salon, not exactly a right-wing site, by any stretch:
In 2008, while at Harvard Law School, Sunstein co-wrote a truly pernicious paper proposing that the U.S. Government employ teams of covert agents and pseudo-"independent" advocates to "cognitively infiltrate" online groups and websites -- as well as other activist groups -- which advocate views that Sunstein deems "false conspiracy theories" about the Government.
The paper discussed needs to be read to be believed. Here is a short, telling sample: "Government can partially circumvent these problems if it enlists nongovernmental officials in the effort to rebut the theories." If that isn't pure Stalinism, it's hard to know what would qualify.

Keep in mind as you read it, that Cass Sunstein is not just some obscure, off-the-wall academic. He is one of the most respected legal academics in the country and the head of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs.

But, then, I guess all this will just get me put down as another conspiracy theorist. Fine. But if Sunstein's actions are a conspiracy, it's the most open in history.

The one-worlders have been hiding their fascism in plain sight for some time now, largely with the help of a dumbed-down, partisan-rhetoric-spewing public that blanks out anything it sees that might signal the need for action.
