	Indeed, but 'cognitive dissonance' is an euphemism for crass lack of consistency. This list is a collection of right wingers posing as 'libertarians', or outright government agents.

	You are calling for automated fascism in the 'anarchist' 'cypherpunk' mailing list. You reach infinite self-parody. Yeah 'cognitive disonance'.
