"Analogous to the war on drugs, which institutionalized indifference to poverty and inequality in the name of "quality of life" and a supposed ethic of responsibility, the war on terrorism is meant to neutralize any ideological alternative to the neo-liberal structure planned for the entire globe." You won't find writing like this in any American journalism, and have to travel to Pakistan to find such analysis. The uniformity of views of the American 'elites' is truly frightening, and it is not in the least unfair to compare the equanimity with which Americans are losing all of their civil liberties to the similar craven acceptance by the elites in Nazi Germany of Hitler's removal of German civil liberties.
