Best Article of the Year, (so far)

What Obama Really Meant Was ...
by Chris Hedges - January 19, 2014


Throughout American history, intelligence services often did little more than advance and protect corporate profits and solidify state repression and imperialist expansion.  War, for big business, has always been very lucrative and used as an excuse to curtail basic liberties and crush popular movements.  “Inter arma silent leges,” as Cicero said, or “During war, the laws are silent.”

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

Have you noticed how many articles I link from Truthdig.com?
It's because they do an excellent job of allowing truth to be authority,
rather than like FOX, where authority is manipulatively displayed as truth.

And like Alternet, Truthout, Commondreams, et al, the "Comments" section is
quite often as enlightening as the article’s themselves, sometimes even more so.

Less a direct response than an FYI: It's hard to dolly back far enough to see the biggest issues. Certainly the hegemonic overreach of the US&A empire is right up there, but this article (http://is.gd/a3JoDT) goes a wee bit farther.
Peace.
