After Bin Laden: Cheering for war and empire!

  1. Well, this is what love of the state does to people. The state uses these kinds of events to legitimize itself in the eyes and minds of the people it rules over, which then leads to people holding this irrational love for it ("nationalism"). People were chanting pro-U$A slogans on my college campus the other day in response, which made me want to throw up.
