Death by Bureaucracy Is a Very Bad Call
(3 comments) Secret security agencies carry out their missions with the programmed precision of soulless machines--in a way that minimizes or excludes ethical or moral considerations.

We must stop being afraid, so that such agencies can eventually go out of business.
