The Spell of Interventionism


1-Dees - media hypnosis
As militarism continues overseas, law enforcement continues its transformation into a domestic military. The implicit aim of law enforcement transforms from protecting the people, to protecting the State. This is intertwined with our foreign policy. But in our modern, present-oriented culture, tracing this back to militarism is impossible for most. And it clashes with the prejudice in favor of intervention. It’s a spell, and it’s almost impossible to break. For most, it would take an effort too great, with the only reward knowing that almost everyone around you is perpetuating a nightmare for those around the globe, for freely lending their consent as citizens to the unleashing of death and chaos on some distant land. It’s far easier to allow the language of the political class lull our moral selves to sleep and let the Warfare State have what it wants. http://original.antiwar.com/Shane_Smith/2015/04/09/the-spell-of-interventionism/
