wretched us

leave a comment »

The supposed greatest democracy of the modern age has re-sanctioned torture.  Slavery is not abolished, it’s exported.  Our industries aren’t clean, manufacturing is just outsourced.  Cook organic, buy fair trade, drive a Humvee, shit on a penguin.  Real progress is so far outside of your control that you might as well just enjoy yourself.  Gaze upon our wretched species, fall to your knees, and laugh as the salt tracks down your cheeks.

(see: Guantanamo Bay, Abu Ghraib, Bradley Manning; the little Indian fingers that make the H&M on our backs; Chinese smog that blocks out the sun)
