Derek Voorhees

September 11 was the tragic catalyst in the right wing's ongoing campaign to induce us to act contrary to our interests and heritage through the use of fear. Most contemporary "conservative" and neoliberal policies are a hard sell, so disaster capitalism becomes the norm for the corrupt and otherwise morally bankrupt.

I resist the urge to call the average citizen a coward. But we all need to wake up and spread the word that this kind of insidious conditioning needs to be recognized and rejected.

Now. Before we give up all that's real and good in the name of an exceptionalism that exists only in our dulled imaginations.


"Disaster capitalism" is a great phrase, loaded with ironies, Derek!
