A Fragrant Post

Yale philosopher Harry Frankfurt writes: "Bullshit is unavoidable whenever circumstances require someone to talk without knowing what he is talking about....The lack of any significant connection between a person's opinions and his apprehension of reality will be even more severe, needless to say, for someone who believes it his responsibility, as a conscientious moral agent, to evaluate events and conditions in all parts of the world."

Ah, that would explain this recent pronouncement against so-called "Hindu literature" by the Lashkar-e-Taiba.
