In various countries throughout the world, did traitors receive fair and normal trials? What about traitors and enemy combatants even today? And most of his list has to do with Jewish authority in Judea.
To my way of thinking, both religion and science are children of philosophy. To that end, I don't think perennialism carries any more metaphysical baggage than science does. While there is lots of evidence and theory to sift through, both acknowledge fundamental mystery. I think any ontological projection of what reality "is" is nothing more than metaphor. Preferrably, very useful metaphor, that maps to theory and experience as coherently as possible.
There are lots of Western Ideas. I referred to a Western Idea. The idea of free speech, freedom of thought, personal autonomy and responsibility, respect for the dignity of others, good faith and good will. For competent free thinkers, this is not hard to understand.

Obama waged war on the cops by simply making the shooting about race. These cops for the most part wasn't racist but when they were accused of being racist. That's an attack on them and after so long people become racist because of that. Nevermind more black cops shot blacks than white ones. Then again actually looking at the evidence and making a intelligent decision isn't a dem strong point.
