Guerra Perpétua

"The privatization of conflict. This is likely the critical factor that makes perpetual warfare possible. For all intents and purposes, the US isn't at war. The use of a professional military in combination with corporate partners has pushed warfare to the margins of political/social life. A war's initiation and continuation is now merely a function of our willingness/ability to finance it. Further, since privatization mutes moral opposition to war (i.e. "our son isn't forced to go to war to die") the real damage at the ballot box is more likely to impact those that wish to end its financing. To wit: every major presidential candidate in the field today now gives his/her full support to the continuation of these wars."

Daqui.

Por outro lado, se o limite é o dinheiro... o dólar vale cada vez menos. Quando a esperança está no colapso, tristes dias se vivem.

Caro amigo, sempre se viveram, acho eu. A culpa é da comunicação global e da liberdade (raios, esta saiu sem querer). Agora diz-se tudo, lê-se tudo, sabe-se tudo. Tranquiliza-te que o Mike ainda não está senil. Ainda bem que se encontraram os culpados, esses culpados.
