Trucker: Yep, it will ... for a while. And that's why a lot of people are against it. They don't want to lose their comfort level. That's more important to them than the lives of millions of people overseas ... and the lives of their own grandchildren.

You can't blame people for wanting to have a pleasant life, but in times like these that turns them into accomplices with the system. The only way life can stay pleasant now is if you play along. The punishments for opposition are getting increasing unpleasant.

But rebelling is invigorating. It's an authentic life, not the superficial pleasantries of a lackey life.

Even the lackeys are going to lose their precious comfort level before long. Things are getting worse and worse here because that's the nature of the system. It devours everything.

The country is run by corporate robots. They're squeezing the people at home and strangling them overseas. And the military is their enforcer. It's become a monster rampaging out of control, fighting enemies that it itself created, like Saddam Hussein, Osama bin Laden, the Taliban. This beast knows only to kill, and it does that reflexively, mechanically, massively. The leaders elected to stop it end up serving it. Amerika is running amok in a mania of unconscious killing. Amerika is a berserker battling the universe, a gut-shot hyena devouring its own entrails.

We have to stop doing this ... and we can. We don't need to live this way, by bombing and killing.

I want people to know there's a movement here to resist militarism. It's rolling. They can be part of it ... in many ways.

Trucker: That's a question only they can answer.

Hathaway : What if you get caught? Would you shoot it out?

Trucker: No, I don't have any weapons. I don't believe in killing people for peace. And cops are still people.

I'd probably spend the rest of my life as a prisoner of war in Guantánamo West, that new supermax in Colorado.

Hathaway : Doesn't that scare you?

Trucker: You bet it does. But even if that happens, my life will have meant something. I'll have done what I could to stop this monster from invading more countries and murdering more people.
