A country at war ......

A country full of victims....Coulterville, California, 16.3.2008

Already in 1968, Edward Abbey made an interesting comparison. In "Desert solitaire" he wrote: "like some twentieth century Americans, the Anasazi lived under a cloud of fear". The Anasazi were indian tribes, who built their pueblo villages in fortress like positions in cliffs in the sandstone. Already at this time, american people lived in fear. Why this fear? Fear of the unknown outside the fortress? Because a government tells them constantly that they live in danger? Why? To make the role of a government more important, necessary? To justify unjustifyable measures?
