Re: The CIA
Secretcy is the beginning of tyranny. It can be no other way, it is reality.
It is our reality. And I don't like it. It seems the CIA and others are rogues, with even the represenatives of the People kept in the dark. That should never be.
It seems we have official policy, on paper, with a lot of policy being secret, transmitted only vocally, never written down. That pisses on the Constitution, and some celebrate it. And that should make us afraid of our own gov't. Which of course, I am. The tyranny is here, but we have something like Soma from an old sci fi novel to keep us placated. When you then divide americans as has been done with the rise of right wing media, you can get away with murder because the two groups are too busy fighting one another. Divide and conquer and feed em Soma. Works really well. Leads to a proliferation of idiots.
