I think we should listen more to our good friend Benjamin Franklin....
"He who would trade liberty for some temporary security, deserves neither liberty nor security."
"All Wars are Follies, very expensive, and very mischievous ones. When will Mankind be convinced of this, and agree to settle their Differences by Arbitration? Were they to do it, even by the Cast of a Dye, it would be better than by Fighting and destroying each other."
"There never was a good war or a bad peace."
If any of you have read George Orwell's classic "1984" you will see that we are in the middle of a war that will never end.The media will always paint a picture of this constant threat in which we need to protect ourselves from. The threat we need to protect ourselves from, in reality, is the Corporatocracy which has infiltrated our government so that all political decisions are made solely upon what will help this corporations make the biggest profit WITH NO REGARD FOR ETHICS & MORALS.
The war in Iraq & the war on terror have gone on now longer then the US involvement in WW I & WW II COMBINED. No one says a thing. 5 years ago I made a short video about the war & I mention it in that it costs the US $275 million PER DAY to run that War. Someone is making all that money while thousands die & others grab control of Iraq's natural resources, which they are making even more profits with.
The entire TSA PAT DOWN policy & screening machines is just another small step in the erosion to our liberties which we apparently are all agreeing to.
If you know the story of THE SHEIK & THE CAMEL then that should warn you about what is really happening.
One day we will wake up & our liberties will be so well eroded that we will have martial law & everyone will be yawning about it. If it had happened over night then we all would been up in arms about it, (literally).
