"The state -- and the corporate order that depends upon the exercise of state power -- is fighting for its survival. Rather than treating this as a 'war against terrorism,' it is more accurate to consider it as a 'war to preserve the hierarchically-structured institutional order.' There are too many trillions of dollars and too much arbitrary power at stake for those who benefit from controlling the state’s instruments of violence to await the outcome of ordinary people’s thinking. If the survival of the corporate-state power structure required the extermination of two billion people, such a program would be undertaken with little hesitation." (06/09/11)
