“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

"The Exposure of the Police State"

Vince Carducci wrote me again this morning about that fantastic "Garden of the Gods" near Detroit. (See my previous.)

He summed up the last few days: the coming out of the 99% and the subsequent "exposure of the police state."

Yes. For something to happen it has to happen twice, right? Riot cops and SWAT teams met the striking students in Mrak hall (the admin building) in 2009. It was pretty shocking. And again Friday, and of course in Berkeley.

These guys are bankrolled by the so-called War on Terror. They are fragments of a nightmare from which it is necessary to struggle awake.
