    that the last 30 years have convinced me beyond a shadow of a doubt that Americans could care less about silly things like justice, freedom and the rule of law, and indeed care less about them with each passing day.  Consider the fate of the Iran-Contra criminals.  Not only were they not brought to any meaningful justice, in this administration they ahve returned to places of power in many cases higher than they held at taht time.  Others are celebrated as American national heroes for their actions, even with a generation's time passed, plenty of time for historical reflection.
