The Creepy Messiah (Lew Rockwell)

Lew Rockwell on Obama:

Huge crowds have always seemed slightly anti-human to me, so the sight of 200,000 provincials gathered to hail a would-be emperor was alarming rather than inspiring. I have never agreed, of course, with Aristotle's view that some men are born to be slaves, but these adoring mobs are clearly glad to be ruled by an imperial foreigner. Continue to ccupy us! Tell us what to do! Worse is the deliberate religious air given to power lust. Was it slightly odd as well that Obama gave one of his Middle Eastern political sermons at a temple of Herakles?
