I see that Nigel Farage MEP may be summoned for his outrageous rudeness to Herman Van Rampuy. Farrage will become wet with smugness that if it goes ahead. It will give him more media attention, and an opportunity to rant about EU as a threat to free speech. To be banned from the EU Parliament would give him a great deal of satisfaction and pleasure.
Farrage's attack is a classic example of the debating style of extreme right wingers. They major in ad homs and personal abuse. To try to exchange insults with a free market fundamentalist would be as if to enter a crapping contest with an elephant.
Why are extreme conservatives like this? The reason is that as fundamentalists, they believe that their point of view is absolutely and completely right. They scorn any kind of relativism, and they regard anyone who differs from their POV as 100% wrong, and stupid with it. They regard the rest of humanity with contempt, and for them, society does not exist.. The EU to them is a socialist plot, a deep conspiracy dreamed up by unnamed defeated Communists who went underground in 1991.
The best punishment for Farage would be somehow to compel him to debate the philosophical basis of his faith in such a way that he was unable to use personal abuse. His presupposition, that the individual human being is the basic building block of economic reality, if not of all reality, would be shown to be absurd. The out-workings of his philosophy, from his boorish and contemptible words in Parliament, to the monstrous, debt-based free market economy that is predicated on his philosophy, will be exposed as the dysfunctional behaviours that they really are.
