Okay, let me try this out here. I've been following Chris Hedges to some extent. Each time I check in I find his positions provocative and worryingly true. So I saw the piece below today and frankly kind of felt sick. I felt sick because I have witnessed and been part of the attitudes he eludes to and I am terrified by the historical consequences he lays out. I chose my moniker for a reason, I fear I may be doomed to barking at the moon. Regardless, it is clear to me that peace is tenuous a frame, and the divisions that cross friends, families, coworkers, forons, etc. in this state are probably terribly normal as well as terrifying.
