Quote of the Week:

"An industrial capitalist society that does not recognize ecological limits but only perpetual economic expansion and has the profit motive as driver, will eventually consume and destroy itself."

"But we will all be taken down with it."

What a load of trash. Overlooking for the moment recent exubriant perfidy on the part of UK law enforcement ("De Mezenes was wearing a heavy jacket!" No, it was a light denim jacket. "He jumped the turnstile!" No, he paid with his card. "He ran from police!" People sometimes pick up their pace to catch a train. "Um, here's 585,000 pounds to say we're sorry we shot your son for no real reason we can figure out?") and assuming that the arrestees are something other than ordinary folks, where's the sense in shutting down air travel after the arrests? If the bad guys are now in jail, shouldn't the terror alert go down rather than up? Of course, filling the papers with instructions about how you can or can't bring milk for babies onto airplanes does distract from the full-scale land invasion of Lebanon with the accompanying predictable horrific consequences.

I suppose there is an argument that the arrestees don't represent the full scope of the group of conspirators, and that arrests of some might prompt the rest to put their plan into action immediately. That justification seems to have slipped by the authorities, though, and it wouldn't really make sense given that the execution of the plan wasn't imminent. If there are more conspirators, arrests should have been forstalled until they were identified.

"The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble."
-Proverbs 4:19 (KJV)
