…does the world see a Republic of Fools?

The authentication of the quote below has been unsuccessfully attempted by many, you are welcome to try.  The quote has been passing around the internet and seen on conservative and progressive sites in equal numbers.  The importance of knowing how we are perceived by the citizenry of other nations gives us a truer picture of ourselves.  What we do with that perception is dutifully up to us.  I felt that this quote [valid or not] fits perfectly into an answer that many of us may be asking in recent times.  “How did we let this happen?”  ….the question that we could ask of many, many issues that are a plague to our society and our republic.  My first article shared with Silver Shield addressed our follies in America and those individuals and corporatocracies which promote them.  Being aware of the idiocracies we experience during the daily trek thru the world is one step toward exposing them.

This quote is believed to have been translated into English from an
article appearing in the Czech Republic as published in the Prager
Zeitung of 28 April 2010.
The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency. It will be easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment

Prince of Fools

Prince of Fools

to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails us. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.”

“In the days of Caesar, kings had fools and jesters. Now network presidents have anchormen.”Ted Koppel
