Living in the United States is akin to living in a land of fairly tales. It is a surreal landscape of bizarre shapes through which one must navigate carefully. Being American is like living in the Land of Oz. The American people are held in such contempt by those in power and by their servants in the corporate media that they are constantly spoon fed the most blatant lies. Those in power not only loathe ordinary working people, they loathe truth; and they loathe democracy. The rich and powerful see the unworthy masses as their servants and play things. They see them as canon fodder. Nothing could make this truth more obvious than the spate of lies spread this week by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice in regards to torture.
