      to cancel but hit post. So anyway here goes. We have as a society had fear and violence pumped at us for the last 12 years nonstop. Endless wars against whatever threatens our life style. Not just hot wars of killing preemptively but cultural wars wars on women wars on drugs wars on the poor and the old.  

      What kind of people have we become in in the guise of keeping us safe. I went to the video store last night and almost every DVD cover had a big fucking gun or weapon on it. Looks to me like we slid down that slippery slope after 9/11 and are now living in Cheney's Dark Side. Axelrod called this viscous cruel NWO 'the world as we find it.' It's not. It's our own homegrown creation pumped as inevitable by those who make obscene profits off the dark side of our national psyche.

      Human rights the real universal ones are gone daddy gone. We gave them up to be safe in a nightmare world we are creating. Our politics are nothing but fear. Seems to me this whole society is mentally ill and homicidal to boot.. What ever happened to all we have to fear is fear itself? Were addicted to fear and violence. We need an intervention badly, where is the love?  Evil is not outside, not the other we need to kill, but a nightmare we have allowed to grow in the dark. Guns, violence and killing just feed the beast.
