Now What? The Quotable Linkspam Version

via zeitgeistmovement:

Do not let the nationalistic and jingoistic “Hooray! The evil terrorist is dead!” mentality seep into your head. If anything, this will be used to control you and drive support for more foreign empire expansion.

My mind is blown at the reactions to Bin Laden’s death on FB. So many folks seem to be missing the fucking point. One of my sisters is in the military and has been since 1998. So, I’m coming to this on ideological and pragmatic level. Let me be clear: War is bullshit. Killing Bin Laden is not a magic bullet. You can’t be anti-imperialist one day and dancing around praising our imperialist activities the next day. I’m too through.

“We live in a society whose leaders speak of killing and humiliating their enemies with barely-concealed chest-thumping and juvenile macho posturing. We live in a society whose budgetary priorities demonstrate a violent obsession with body-shattering weaponry and a distinct lack of interest in the health and well-being of human beings…And it begins at the top: with the corporatist kleptocracy of the US government, the global gangster state which dominates and exploits through violence and intimidation and the hoarding of wealth, granting favors to loyal subjects, issuing threats to the unruly, and killing rivals. If we can eradicate the culture of violence and misogyny and crime at the top of our society, then just maybe we’ll have a shot of eradicating it at the bottom too.”

i want different achievements. I want to set our collective USA mind to peace. peace that comes with liberation rather than violent subjugation. i don’t want any more cheering and USA chants when another person is killed.
