There are times I no longer recognize this country. there are things that our leaders have done that should churn your stomach... but they are defended since a DEMOCRAT gave the order. It seems to me that situational ethics are now partisan... and it is part of the process of closing a society, where even what was wrong oh even ten years ago, it's ok today. Something did snap on 9.11... and has led to a level of fear that allows people to justify things that they would not have ten year ago.

Those of us who ever bothered readying the PNAC plan will have to admit... they succeeded... Strengthening American Defenses also had this as part of it's transformational plan. This plan to change the country into something it wasn't has succeeded beyond their wildest dreams.

The Banality of Evil is actually instructive of where we are... that is all. I got no idea what will snap the American people out of that fear induced paranoia and fear of everything back into a moral people again. Quite simply all can be justified in the mame of protecting the fatherland from that nebulous terrorist... we are no longer the nation of Nuremberg... and that is through the looking glass...


PS perhaps OWS will help to snap us back out from this... cancer. But it is high time we remove it from our psyche... or the world of 1984 will be more prophecy than fiction.
