    Is Pussy Riot guilty for Russian oppression? Bradley Manning for American destruction and empire abroad?

    I'm all for American reparations to Iraqis and Afghanis, if there's a way to do it that distributes the restitution equitably. I should have done and still should do more to stop the wars and bring about justice, so of that I am guilty of some complicity of inaction.

    But to say it's all everyone's fault is to say that there's nothing to be done. That if you use a computer, manufactured in China, to battle oppression, you're a hopeless hypocrite whose efforts mean nothing. Retreat from civilization is surrender. Don't berate and condemn those who are doing the best they can to right our country.

    Government and laws are the agreement we all make to secure everyone's freedom.
