220px-TrialKafka If you haven’t, please watch Frontline’s The United States of Secrets. Also, note that the American government engages is a policy of malicious and false prosecution to induce cooperation and silence dissent when it suits their interests.On the balance I do think America is the “good guys,” but the world is a lot more Song and Ice of Fire than Lord of the Rings. Many Americans are complacent about government abuse of power because they don’t ever think that they’ll be subject to capricious and corrupt prosecution. Out of sight, out of mind. Meanwhile those in the halls of power understand that there’s a different set of rules for them. These are facts, and I hope the reality of these facts makes Americans more conscious of how people in other nations view us.

  1. Yeah, it was very disappointing to see, they’ll ruin your life just to instill fear in others. As Snowden said it’s not about the money, it’s about the power. That’s the most upsetting part to me: they truly see themselves as our rulers, not our protectors. They’re supposed to be protecting us but they sometimes instead abuse us to protect *themselves*!

  2. All the right they promise—all the wrong they bring.
    Stewards of the Judgment, suffer not this King!
