To put is as simply as possible, the anglo-american world empire is as malevolent as it gets, however, it is wrapped in a veil of benevolance... it's always 'for the children', and these severe twists of logic.
"Oh, we gotta pass medicare reform or else the racists win... you're not a racist are you?"
"Oh, you gotta take you're shoes off because you might put bombs in your shoes... you don't want terrorists to blow up planes do you?"
"Now we gotta scan your naked body, and copy it and distribute it, and if you're famous get you to sign you're naked scan image."
Or on the news :
"According to this new scientific study, 77% of the people that oppose the bailouts are closet racists and child molesters."
I could go on....
Think about the children.
