With the death of Habeas Corpus -- as well as the pretense that we live in a free country -- many are still defending the actions of the Bush administration as necessary for peace, security and freedom. Not just for ourselves, but for the entire world.
It sounded eerily familiar, and no wonder.
As a child of the Cold War era, I remember the denouncement of the Soviet Union, particularly of their state-sponsored propaganda. The 1966 poster above reads "For Peace, Security, and the Freedom of Nations!"
Sounds a lot like what Bush has been saying, doesn't it? But just as in the Soviet Union, the vast majority of people will mindlessly parrot the sentiment, never questioning their own steadily-decreasing peace, security, and freedom.
