        Clip from Dave Emory's Oct. lecture about the relationship between fascism and religion. In this clip, Mr. Emory discusses Reinhard Gehlen and reads a p.   While Dr. Johnson was no doubt correct to write that "patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel," he just as easily could have written that patriotism is the last refuge of an idiot. The latter phrasing is arguably more useful to commit to memory, given the higher likelihood of bumping into patriotic idiots on the street than of bumping into.

        Rehab is the last refuge of a scoundrel. First come the headlines about perv behavior, either by a politician who is invariably described as “embattled” or an entertainer who is “troubled.” Soon – usually the next day – their publicist says they are off to an “undisclosed location” for, yes, rehab.   For Glenn Beck and many others patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel; and religion is the next to last refuge; (or it could be vice versa.) Religion is often used to further ulterior motives (George Bush,) or it is turned to as a way out when somebody gets their butt in a sling (Ted Haggard, Mark Sanford.).

        Compare: "Patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel." versus "Patriotism is the first refuge of a scoundrel." The second statement seems more lucid and better relays the meaning that people attribute to Johnson. To see what I mean, compare to the following: "Truth is the last resort of a liar." 4/4/12, PM.
