The More You Know, The Worse It Gets
If you're not regularly reading George Monbiot, you should be. The smell of bullshit drives him crazy, and he's willing to do the legwork to show exactly how the power structure is lying to us. Back in December, he pointed out just how Amerika is torturing Jose Padilla, and how that torture is used in Amerikan civilian prisons as well. Horrifying? Yes. But essential to know what the future looks like for all of us unless we manage a revolution of democracy both here and in the rest of the world. With Amerika now heading down a path that is taking it back to pre-Copernician times, we should all be digging in to defend modernity.
