grim dawn glimmers

A faint light is starting to trickle into the consciousness of Americans from the foreign and underground presses, as in this article.

As we come to see clearly and consciously what we have wrought with our "freedom" we will have to face the depravity of our nature and the bankruptcy of our values. We will be known as the society of fat people who bankrupted ourselves and the world while using up the energy supply and destroying the atmosphere. We preached freedom and practiced torture, insisted on democratic reforms by others while rigging elections ourselves. We flaunted our holier-than-thou "war on terror" while devastating defenseless villages, cities and civilians with "shock and awe" high tech military assaults.

"But the terrorists! The terrorists!" we cry. Did it occur to anybody that maybe there's a terrorist whose benefiting here at home more than any of the terrorists abroad?
