    I found this article about our attitude toward civil liberties and the vengeful, fear-based policies of the past decade to be quite thoughtful and worth reading:

    Peace is the Way: Remembering 9/11 and the Decade Since

    Thanks for posting this, lkkinetic. Another powerful reminder. Alas, I'm so pessimistic about my fellow citizens. When she writes that few people care -- about the evisceration of our rights, about the increasing militarization of our police forces, about the lust for vengeance -- I can only nod wearily. Indeed few people do care. And those of us who have ringing alarm bells are still told we don't know what we're talking about, don't worry, be happy. After all the evidence, still, there is denial and denial and denial.
