Thinking about: Counterinsurgency

I’m sure I don’t agree with many of the objectives of the Occupy Whatever movement, and certainly have issues with some of their hangers-on. That being said, Chris Hedges hits one out of the park in describing how the State operates against any groups with which it has disagreement. It is interesting that in a field where it is ideas that are being contested, you do not see much in the way of actual addressing of the issues by The Powers That Be, but rather that discrediting – or flat out shooting – the messenger is the tactic of choice.

Once the State is so confident in its power and position that it does not feel any need to justify its existence, can The End be all that far behind? Students of history who paid attention to the USSWere can answer that question…
