Bad or worse than Bush

Well, Obama has certainly extended and hardened the cement on a lot of Bush’s post-9/11 Terror Inc. policies, so he’s very similar to Bush in every way that way. His domestic policy is a bit different, but when you talk about drones, the American Empire, the NSA, civil liberties, attacks on journalism and whistleblowers, he’s as bad or worse than Bush. He hasn’t started as many wars, but he’s extended the ones we had, and I don’t even think Dick Cheney or Richard Nixon would say the president has the right to unilaterally decide whom he can kill around the world. On Tuesdays, the president can just decide whom he wants to kill, and you know, since 9/11 there are magic words like 'terror', and if you use magic words, you can justify any power grab you want.

Oligarchie (Herrschaft der Wenigen, des einen Prozent, der Handvoll Global Players) oder eben Plutokratie (Herrschaft des Geldes) heißt Klassenkampf von oben (Warren Buffet), dem die Machtlosen nur ihre große Zahl entgegenzusetzen haben bzw. darauf hoffen können, dass sich der skrupellose Bruch von Abkommen, Verträgen, Übereinkünften geschäftsschädigend auswirkt und schließlich auch die SöldnerInnen zunehmend versagen: "We always wonder if we killed the right people, if we endangered the wrong people, if we destroyed an innocent civilian's life all because of a bad image or angle."
