One purpose of The Boétie Legacy, and a World in Peril was to provide people informed fiction that helps to break down some of the myths about war being used to maintain the status quo.
The degree to which a popluation is cognizant of the actions of its government is directly related to the quality and freedom of the country’s press and the desire of that population to insure they are being governed in accordance with their nation’s constitution.
In my opinion, today’s heros are not those people carrying weapons on the battlefield.
They are instead:
1) those journalists and individuals willing to risk their lives, freedom, and reputations to expose the lies, conduct, and corruption in which our government engages that is contrary to our nation’s laws and constitution
2) those citizens who embrace the responsibility to support a free press, look for alternative sources to government propaganda, and have the courage to speak out against popular opinion when necessary.
My respect and gratitude to Hersh, Manning, Snowden, Assange, Greenwald, and all the other people working to dismantel the Orwellian nightmare that is today’s reality.
