Eric Bergeson's The Country Scribe
Since 1997, Eric has owned and operated Bergeson Nursery, rural Fertile, MN, a business his grandfather started in 1937. With the active participation of his parents, who owned the business for the previous twenty five years, and his younger brother Joe, who is now president of the company, the business has nearly tripled in size during Eric’s ownership tenure. The holder of a Master of Arts in History from the University of North Dakota, Eric has taught courses in history and political science at the University of Minnesota, Crookston. He is also an adjunct lecturer in history for Hamline University, St. Paul, MN. Eric’s hobbies include Minnesota Twins baseball, Bach organ music, bookstores, hiking, photography, singing old country music with his brother Joe, and watching the wildlife on the swamp in front of his house eight miles outside of Fertile, Minn.

Sean Hannity defends the ousted Rutgers basketball coach, who hit his players and threw balls at them. I knew it was a matter of time before some right-winger would defend the use of violence by those in authority against those beneath them. It is one of the great right-wing beliefs: The little guy needs beating every now and then just to keep him in line. Kids? Spare the rod, spoil the child. Weirdos? A little bullying goes a long way. Gay kid? Whip him at the right time and all will be well. World problems? Invade countries one-twentieth our size and kill a couple hundred thousand civilians. If it doesn't work to solve the crisis, (which it hasn't) at least it will make us feel better. Criminals? We need more guns so we can have one big shoot-out between the good guys and the bad guys in the school hallway! That'll solve it! 



When right-winger's advocate violence, it is never on a even playing field. It is always the powerful having license to inflict pain on the weak for the good of the weak. It is sadistic. However, when there is the potential for violence and the outcome is in doubt, the right-wing cowards head for the hills.
