70 Years of Lying About Pearl Harbor by David Swanson

08/12/2013

David Swanson concludes his article 70 Years of Lying About Pearl Harbor with this warning,

… out of that very worst thing our species has ever done to itself, World War II, would come the permanent military industrial complex. We would extend the power to vote to more and more Americans while, in the cruellest of jokes, transforming voting into an ever more meaningless enterprise. We would paint a fresh coat of glossy pretence on our democracy while hollowing it out from the inside, replacing it with a war machine the likes of which the planet had never seen and may not be able to survive.
