Neoliberal democracy. Instead of citizens, it produces consumers. Instead of communities, it produces shopping malls.

Powerful, yes, that is the word that i constantly rolled on my tongue, i dreamed of absolute power, the kind that forces others tokneel, that forces the enemy to capitulate, finally converting him, and the more the enemy is blind, cruel, sure of himself, buried in his conviction, the more his admission proclaims the royalty of he who has brought on his defeat.
In fact, it was stated early in the first bush [presidency], bush i, in one of their documents they pointed out in the future, us wars are going to be against much weaker enemies. And they have to be won quickly and decisively before a popular reaction develops. And iif you take a look, that's what's done.
