    The American republic now depends on lies. If everyone suddenly learned that Bush/Cheney tortured people for false evidence to lie us into invading Iraq, that Obama has continued the torture, even today's tattered faith in government would look patriotic. And the fact is that we have tortured like that. Just most people don't realize it.

    The 1970s malaise in (dominant White male) American culture came after our faith crashed on Watergate, and we finally had to face the fact that Vietnam was not only a fabulously expensive loss, but a lie. That the Kennedys, MLK and Malcolm X were murdered by the powers that really run things.

    The next cycle down would really destroy the country. Tragically because Americans are simply not capable of handling the truth that could set us free.
