* Tom Lord:


I don't think this leads the way to facism.  Certainly, you have rules
for emergencies when large parts of the executive or legislative are
killed or become unavailable in some other way.  I think talking about
a terrorist act on Election Day is stupid because it might give some
people ideas (kind of a self-fulfilling prophecy).  However, I suppose
the Bush camarilla just wants to keep a general climate of fear
because fearful people are more likely to vote conservative.  From
this point of view, it's important to talk about terrorist acts twice
a week or so.

This is another interesting development:


Such behavior is typical of regimes which are democratic only at the
surface.  On the other hand, if it's still reported on CNN homepage,
it can't be *that* bad.

PS: Just reread Alan Moore's "Watchmen".  It seems that Mr Veidt was
quite wrong even about the short-term unifying aspect of an attack on
New York. 8->
