“ We like to tell ourselves that anti-American animosity is produced by propaganda from foreign factions hostile to the US. Actually, that belief is the one that is the by-product of propaganda. The acts of the US government that generate this hostility are rarely discussed in US political discourse, though they are widely discussed in most of the rest of the world. Americans would benefit from spending much less time and energy expressing outrage and offense at anti-American sentiment, and far more time and energy trying to understand why it’s so widespread and intense.

“ There is no evil beyond the claimed ‘right’ to murder by arbitrary edict, to murder anyone, anywhere, anytime. If you support this particular evil —and if you vote for Obama [or Romney], you support it —then you will support anything. … If you vote for Obama or Romney, do so proudly. I want you to say: “I vote for Obama/Romney proudly. I am proud to be a knowing accomplice to their murders, including the murders of innocent human beings.” Say that,and those of us who refuse to surrender our souls will know where you stand. This is not a complicated issue. It is stunningly straightforward.
— Arthur Silber (via disobey)
All politicians are murderers. There is nothing to be said against that. They are serial killers, and rich ones at that. They are glamorized and loved for their murder. No excuses can be made for supporting them.
