In the News As none other I know how problematic it is to discuss matters related to politics on the web. However, every now and then, there's no way around it, and this is one of those moments. There's this thing going on at airports in the US, and while many will see it as a separate issue, the body scanner issue, and the sad stories it has spawned, are symptoms of a far larger problem that is a direct threat to everything we've fought for during and since the Enlightenment.

Yup, when the dollar dies, it is going to get very interesting. Food and gas prices will explode (in the midst of a depression), and something will need to be done to distract the US public. Who will be the Emmanuel Goldstein? Iran, China, North Korea?

The thievery now is at unprecedented levels. At least the Europeans (like the Germans and Icelanders) realize they're being taken for a ride and are ticked off.
