This appears in the comments section on a post in Ten Percent:
Me: Oil is a major cause. So is war profiteering. Bush’s militant, Christian fundamentalism plays a role too.
RickB: Yep all those, and I’d add imperialism. They all came together in a perfect storm, starting with a right wing judicial coup aided by a sibling’s state control and a father who used to be leader & headed the secret police and army for the empire. That’s how it would have been reported if it had happened in a developing nation!
Comments from people abroad often give us a perspective on things here that we really need.
The fog we live in because our media is propaganda oriented rather than news oriented needs to be lifted in as many ways as possible.
