You want a snapshot of what life is like in America now? Check the recent papers:
In the Wall Street Journal, Alan Dershowitz says that opposition to Torture is being “soft on Terror”, and that we should use torture, because it worked for the Nazis. No, I’m not kidding.
On the other hand, in yesterday’s New York Times, Frank Rich has the courage to call what’s happened to this country a Coup, and draws similarities to what’s occuring in Pakistan right now.
One side of America is seriously arguing that we should emulate the Nazis, and the other is admitting that there’s been a coup in this country, but isn’t doing anything to stop it.
Get me out of here.
