The Manichean President *

When Bob Woodward asked Bush if he consulted with his father about whether to invade Iraq, Bush — according to Woodward — responded that he did not, but instead appealed to “a higher father” … According to the president, seeking God’s will and acting in accordance with it drives each of his decisions, particularly the most consequential ones. (pp. 60-63)
One recalls a remark that Mises derisively cited from Werner Sombart’s A New Social Philosophy: “The Führer gets his orders from God, the Supreme Führer of the universe.”
