aiding the enemy

claims are made by the puppet masters of the empire that Bradley Manning “aided the enemy,” as if this ominous enemy lurks round every corner, without a face, without a sound, waiting for the next chance to strike--- for it would be so easy to have all the citizens under the spell, for ignorance to always equal strength & for perpetual war to always lead to perpetual peace, yet one doesn’t have to leave their own neighborhood, to see just how well our own empire’s orchestrators “aid the enemy” themselves--- need one look at the unemployment rate? need one try to get proper universal health care? need one try to go a month without a mass shooting, a school shooting, or some hick running amok with said cowboy guns, without the NRA & those rallying with it, telling us that there isn’t anything wrong? need we remind ourselves how Rome fell? (from inside & outside) (from inside & outside) (from inside & outside)
