Mythical Constructs

The above photo was taken a number of years ago. Before it was illegal to snap photos in the NYC subway. I would no more point a camera at any landmark or US infrastructure than run from a cop these days.

As you well know, stupid terrorists need to take photos and act like tourists before they can fulfill their terrorist duties.

Obviously, the neocon agenda is working.

Now there are spot checks on the subway.

A few more terrorist attacks anywhere, and soon the populace will be whipped into such a frenzy that we will be turning each other in to the gestapo. In the meantime, anyone of darker skin color will do.

Most of us really do want big brother to take care of us. A few innocents mixed in with the “usual suspects” is a small price to pay. Until you are one of the usual suspects.

One of the greatest pieces of propaganda in the history of propaganda may be Casablanca. All those desperate refugees seeking freedom in the new world, as brave, sacrificing people outwit the fascists painted such a lovely myth.

Now we are the fascists. And where is that free place to run to?

At least the usual suspects in the movie Casablanca, were not going to be tortured, sodomized and disappeared without charges.

Speak up now while you still can.

[...] The question should be asked: are we a good people anymore? We are not a great people – that much is certain. Not in a land where more people watch “American Idol” than the State of the Union address. In reality, we are still, as Martin Luther King pointed out nearly four decades ago, “the greatest purveyors of violence in the world.” One day, if we are not careful, we will choke on our myths.[...]
Too late. We have already choked. We believed what we were told told to, just like good little patriots.

We loved our myths more than life and freedom.

I would like to think it is not too late to give up our love of lies, and see reality as it is, and not as we wish it to be.

In the meantime, I have got to purchase one of these t-shirts. (via Scratchings)
