Excellent Quote. . .

“How Our Demented Capitalist System Made America Insane”
by Chris Hedges - April 30, 2012

“When civilizations start to die they go insane.  Let the ice sheets in the Arctic melt.  Let the temperatures rise.  Let the air, soil and water be poisoned.  Let the forests die.  Let the seas be emptied of life.  Let one useless war after another be waged.  Let the masses be thrust into extreme poverty and left without jobs while the elites, drunk on hedonism, accumulate vast fortunes through exploitation, speculation, fraud and theft.  Reality, at the end, gets unplugged.  We live in an age when news consists of Snooki’s pregnancy, Hulk Hogan’s sex tape and Kim Kardashian’s denial that she is the naked woman cooking eggs in a photo circulating on the internet.”

As always with Chris Hedges, this article is a damn good read,
and an excellent perspective of our shared Pax Americana reality.
