GUEST,Captain America Non-Music -What the world has to say (98* d) RE: Non-Music -What the world has to say 20 Oct 01

The U.S. government/Terrorist comparison (and variations of it) frequently pops up on bulk emailings. It is then almost immediately refuted on a point-by-point basis by anyone with a well-informed perspective. I am not going to waste my time doing it here, since, from an intellectual perspective, it is about as frustratng as trying to reason with a child about monsters under their bed. Equally naive is the ravings about loss of civil liberties. Current actions to maintain domestic security pale in comparison to what was enacted during periods like the Civil War (when Lincoln assumed almost dictatorial powers) and World War Two when all forms of communication were strongly censored. The mindless repetition of quasi-factoids by both the far left and far right in this crisis is an insult to rational thinking.
