Fresh Fruit for Rotting Idols on Feed 44

C4SS Feed 44 presents Ryan Calhoun‘s “Fresh Fruit for Rotting Idols” read by Thomas J. Webb and edited by Nick Ford.

“These issues, among others, were not discussed because too many people were outraged with one of the few young voices breaking through the elder echo chamber with an important question. Unaware that this was actually an opportunity for Ron to say something new on a stage again, people view this as a personal attack. I’m not sure in what dictionary the definition of attack is, “Please give us a clear and concise explanation of your troubling past.” To attack someone on stage would be to interrupt them. Holst did no such thing.

But this event isn’t so much about Paul’s past or the future of the liberty movement in light of its conservative holdovers. That would be too constructive and not ridden with self-righteous outrage.

This was about personalities and that’s why my concerns above were not addressed. Ron Paul has established a cult of personality in this movement and it is unshakable. Skepticism of his associations seems to translate to most people as skepticism of the value of his identity and accomplishments.”
