Tyranny in America: Homeland Über Allus!
“The corporate state, which has emasculated our government, is creating a new form of feudalism, a world of masters and serfs. It speaks to those who remain in a state of self-delusion in the comforting and familiar language of liberty, freedom, prosperity and electoral democracy. It speaks to the poor and the oppressed in the language of naked coercion. But, here too, all will end up in the same place."
Chris Hedges, "Recognizing the Language of Tyranny", February 6, 2011
As Cornelius Brothers and Sister Rose sang, “It’s too late to turn back now,” but where they believed they were falling in love, a growing number of Americans—prominent among them Chris Hedges—see clearly that democracy is falling ever deeper into a pit of corporatist oppression. The light of liberty and justice for all is flickering, and will soon die, throwing us into a period of darkness that will end only as Mubarak’s tyrannical grip on Egypt has ended . . . hopefully avoiding a massive bloodbath. Chris Hedges explains precisely why Americans are relinquishing their once-unassailable rights with not so much as a whimper. It happened in Nazi Germany. It’s now happening in Neocon America. Homeland Über Allus!
