"Over the past ten years, if the clampdown hasn’t been as nightmarish as I feared, it’s still been massive: The whole security-industrial complex around Homeland Security, the TSA and their contractors; USA PATRIOT, warrantless wiretapping, and the use of 'national security letters' for purposes entirely unrelated to terrorism; the wars all over the globe, and the doubling of 'defense' spending; extraordinary rendition and torture at Gitmo, Abu Ghraib, Baghram and CIA black sites all over the world. It’s like the Paul Verhoeven version of Starship Troopers -- with 'freedom fries' for all." (09/13/11)
