Freedom? We don't need no steenking Freedom
The new pope is a perfect complement to radical conservative policies sweeping us back into the Middle Ages. With warmongers like Bolton and Wolfowitz swaggering into power to enforce the new American Neo-Con policies, we've got the "might makes right" policy in place. With Ratzinger and Bush as the mouthpieces of God, we've got the justification to do whatever we deem moral, even killing 20,000 innocent Iraqis to "free" them. Hey, it's the Crusades and the Inquisition rolled into one!
The same cast of characters that were jailed, tortured, killed, enslaved, and conquered in the not so distant past are the same ones again being jailed, tortured, killed, enslaved, and conquered today. Progress, freedom, enlightenment, brotherhood? Boooooring! Imperialism, submission, ignorance, hegemony? Huzzah!Posted by tat at April 21, 2005 10:42 AM
