Follow up

So a while back a chum sent me this link to an online BBC Documentary called the Power of Nightmares. It is some heavy stuff linking the use of fear from the Cold War to today's War on Terror. It is relevant to the post below. This is a different type of documentary than I am used to watching. This goes much deeper into the logic of fear. It reminds me of how we behave when fear is sold to us by politicians. It is funny for I hear this even from local politicians about petty issues. They use fear to strengthen their authority. My favorite quote that I have heard from a certain low level neighborhood politician was "The new people in the neighborhood don't understand. They haven't been in the trenches as long as we have."

Wow. And check out the documentary. It is heavy.

And also- it looks like the Pinkos are knocking out satellites in space. Huh. And this is our most favored trading partner who does business with state sponsors of terror Iran and Sudan. Cute. We have lost the Cold War. This test happened on the 11th of January and we just found out it happened. We are asleep at the wheel. We need to re prioritize ourselves as a country.
