My favorite cartoonist Tom Tomorrow addresses the topic of Republican occultism in the current edition of This Modern World. Notice how the cartoon Dick Cheney explains the low cost of the Iraq war using the New Age mantra “We create our own reality.” Is the Vice President a closet fan of The Secret? Does he believe in the Maharishi Effect? The Will to Power? Objectivism? Scientology? In the end, the results are the same—the Law of Quantum Failure always wins.
