Leaders Fit For Fools

Here we stand, willing victims of a system which not long ago collapsed the world's "economies."

While our debt mounts to the nearing disaster, we forsake meaningful investigation of the issues at hand. We ignore in our press the hundreds of protests in major cities of the world. We purposely fail to report them that the champions of the world, the American fool, can wave flags in ignorance of our slaying of innocents for oil and the benefit of the financial elite, that the hate which precipitated the events of a year ago may rise to yet greater magnitude.

In getting our house in order, there is no more important place to focus than ourselves, as together we now comprise a disgrace worthy of little but our own undoing. Neither bombs or guns or false ideology will save us.
