A Lawless Society
To be sure, I’m glad PEN and ACLU are fighting the US Government in the Supreme Court over National Security Agency spying on human rights activists, but I suffer no illusions that the NSA or FBI will cease spying on or harassing activists opposed to US domestic and foreign policy. With so much money to be made robbing the US Treasury and bombing other countries for their oil and minerals, the spying will go on, regardless of what the courts say. As the Indignados of Spain remarked, all they tell us are lies.
