As of September 11, 2001 our world changed. I don't think anyone refute that. With the passage of the (un)Patriot Act, which was pushed foward by PNAC and the neocons, the Constitution...primarily the Bill of Rights...has come under attack.

You see, PNAC...Project for the New American Century...wants to dominate and control the world. They feel it is their "divine right" as Americans, through the Monroe Doctrine. In turn, we are losing our freedoms so they can achieve their goal.

This morning, I found an editorial by John Pilger, a war correspondentand filmmaker based in London. Here's part of that editorial with a link to the rest.

On Christmas Eve, I dropped in on Brian Haw, whose hunched, pacing figure was just visible through the freezing fog. For four and a half years, Brian has camped in Parliament Square with a graphic display of photographs that show the terror and suffering imposed on Iraqi children by British policies. The effectiveness of his action was demonstrated last April when the Blair government banned any expression of opposition within a kilometre of Parliament. The High Court subsequently ruled that, because his presence preceded the ban, Brian was an exception.


As night had covered him, he was lucky. On 7 December, Maya Evans, a vegan chef aged 25, was convicted of breaching the new Serious Organised Crime and Police Act by reading aloud at the Cenotaph the names of 97 British soldiers killed in Iraq. So serious was her crime that it required 14 policemen in two vans to arrest her. She was fined and given a criminal record for the rest of her life.

Freedom is dying.

Eighty-year-old John Catt served with the RAF in the Second World War. Last September, he was stopped by police in Brighton for wearing an "offensive" T-shirt, which suggested that Bush and Blair be tried for war crimes. He was arrested under the Terrorism Act and handcuffed, with his arms held behind his back. The official record of the arrest says the "purpose" of searching him was "terrorism" and the "grounds for intervention" were "carrying placard and T-shirt with anti-Blair info" (sic).

He is awaiting trial.

The Quiet Death of Freedom

PNAC realized that they needed something to cause a "Pearl Harbor Effect" to be able to accomplish their goal.

These are a must read if you value the freedoms you still have!!!
