Goodbye Cruel World

This blog started in March 2003 - more than 4 years ago, with a post entirely lifted from another source - an interview with Kurt Vonnegut called "Kurt Vonnegut vs. the !*!@". I didn't know that wholesale lifting of entire articles was not entirely polite. I just wanted a spot to put news articles that I wanted my friends to see, so I wouldn't have to be a pest forwarding emails. In the time since then we've seen activity on this blog - all by friends, hopefully still friends - peak in the first 2 years, and then it's steadily dropped off.

So I see no time more fitting than now, on the news of Kurt Vonnegut's death, to close this blog and to say goodbye.

Goodbye cruel world,

barry (evil-barry, Mortimer Snerd, etc.)

P.S. - OK, there's tentative plans for a rebirth of a new Citizen Blog at another easier-to-remember web address, perhaps using Wordpress, Expression Engine or Drupal.. When that happens I'll post the forwarding address here...

P.P.S. - OK. Last word. I'm still pissed off. I'm fatigued by the unending bad news and spin of our imperial clowns. I was, and still am, outraged about the level of political discourse in this country, and the vapid hyping of the war machine and the Bush Administration policies in fighting the so called "War on Terror." I think that citizens of this country should have the blood and guts of this war and every war rubbed in their face like a bad dog would be punished. I think we should look at the machevellian foreign policy, and yes: Imperialism and Empire. Would the middle east be what it is today without US interventions , both covert and overt - I can think back to Iran and the removal of a democratically elected president there who was intent on nationalizing it's oil industry from British corporate colonialism - fast forward to now - today's "Islamacists." Would they be in the powerful position if the U.S. hadn't supported authoritarian 'client states', friendly to our interests?

Repealing the MCA would be a nice way to start the year.

"Like the two entwining strands of the double helix, law and power form the genetic structure of government. Law is nothing but empty verbiage without power to back it up, enforce it, embody it. And power without law is nothing but a mad ape, baring its teeth, thumping its chest, raping and beating where it pleases, taking what it wants: a bestial thing, born in the muddy swamp of our lowest, blindest, rawest biochemical impulses. Disconnect these strands and things fall apart, as Yeats says; the center literally cannot hold, and the blood-dimmed tide is loosed upon the world. " Read more...

Whom do the "digital brownshirts" serve?

" If we define an American fascist as one who in case of conflict puts money and power ahead of human beings, then there are undoubtedly several million fascists in the United States. There are probably several hundred thousand if we narrow the definition to include only those who in their search for money and power are ruthless and deceitful. ... They are patriotic in time of war because it is to their interest to be so, but in time of peace they follow power and the dollar wherever they may lead."

Vice President Henry Wallace, 1944 Read more...
