Count on it happening. Big Business wants it that way.
The dream that once was America is dying and we are the ones killing it. It is not Obama. It was not Bush. It is us, because we are fat, lazy, stupid
and have a ten second attention span. We are terrified about the boogey man Muslim, so much we allow ourselves to be violated in the name of security.
We allow without a fight the electronic strip search our children and grandmothers because we are so scared. We allow our police to become
paramilitary thugs, threatening us with 16 years imprisonment for the crime of videoing them in public during the supposed discharge of their duty,
for which we pay. So we turn off the camera in fear,..and in apathy. We routinely vote from emotion instead of logic and use religious beliefs to
guide legal questions instead of the blind intellect and rationality. We believe what's spoon fed to us and then we rant around around anonymously
and pompously on the Internet like tough guys, but doing nothing. We permit our government to attack other countries unprovoked, slaying tens of
thousands of their people in their streets and homes, then we are shocked when their brave young men sign up by the thousands in rags and sandals to
fight back our military industrial killing machine. Would you not join as they do if, say, the Chinese sent battalions into your streets and homes,
running roughshod? (Probably we would not not, since we allow Wal-Mart and Target to bring China to our doorstep just the same because it is oh so
convenient and cheap.) We allow, nay, we encourage, our good sons and daughters to lay their lives down for "Freedom." Whose freedom? Are you more
or less free than you were pre-9/11? Our young military men and women are being slayed for war profits, plain and simple, and we turn a blind eye.
America is a failing state, governed by corruption, populated by cowards and fools.
You and I are the murderers of our childrens' dreams.
