"In a permanent War on Terror, terrorism is not bomb throwing, rather it is any ideological challenge to the 'Status Quo.' When Janet Napolitano states that the guns have turned inward, she doesn’t mean they are pointing at some random asymmetric violent threat, rather she means they are pointing at any systemic abstract threat to the Status Quo. They are aimed at any 'institutional alternatives' to the status quo. If these 'institutional alternatives' draw any blood, that is, threaten the Status Quo, those guns will fire … and it would be impolite in polite society not to pretend otherwise." (12/21/10)
