It's a looking glass world, and they've got the sheeple loving the reflection - it validates their feelings of moral superiority while perpetrating crimes against humanity. With next to no effort at all Wikileaks has been cast as the criminal threatening the security of the sheeple, who are now falling all over themselves to turn the culprits in. We're inching our way closer to a society of neighbors turning in neighbors to whatever the reincarnation of the Gestapo will be calling itself...maybe just "The Police".

So from that last quote, we learn that making moral judgments is "the arena" of those who murder for a living, and also that (as some may have suspected!) law and morality bear no resemblance to one another. Gotcha.

I maybe meant to say "relation" rather than "resemblance," or maybe I wanted to rephrase that sentence altogether. Still, I hope what I'm trying to say is in there somewhere.

How about the CBS intro to the show?

Defining the mental framework: Face the Nation today intro to the program with Admiral Mike Mullen on the WikiLeaks Afghanistan documents: "How much damage has been done?"

Making real Orwell's satire, "Ignorance is Strength."

The idea of the Secretary of Defence of the United States providing any opinions on morality is enough to make me ... oh, to hell with it.

"I'm the one who called the U.S. government," Uber said. "All the people who say that Adrian is a narc, he did a patriotic thing. He sees all kinds of hacks, and he was seriously worried about people dying." [...]
According to a San Francisco Examiner article last month, its volunteer staff includes former NSA official Ira Winkler and Suzanne Gorman, former security chief for the New York Stock Exchange.

I had to read that a couple times to fully appreciate the hilarity of the "not my arena" quote...good catch, thanks.
