Only recently Al Gore declared that global warming poses a far greater threat than global terrorism. Today, Catharine MacKinnon, celebrated feminist author whose new book 'Are Women Human?' has been just released by Harvard University Press, tells us that violence against women in America is as serious a problem as the attacks of September 11. Writing in one of her articles, she averred that that this form violence
qualifies as a casus belli and a form of terrorism every bit as much as the events of September 11 do.
Like the good old Don Quixote, these people charge at imaginary threats while the real one completely escapes their attention. We should not, however, be unduly surprised, since loosening its victims' grip on reality is liberalism's cardinal attribute.
