"New Evil Empire" - Photo manipulation
Weapons, not food, not homes, not shoes
Not need, just feed the war cannibal animal
I, walk from corner to the rubble, that used to be a library
Line up to the mind cemetery now!
What we don't know keeps the contracts alive and movin
They don't gotta burn the books, they just remove 'em
While arms warehouses fill as quick as the cells
-RATM, Bulls on Parade
sometimes comedy in this country is the only way to get intelligent discourse on a social or political topic - and a shame
Yeah, it's like everybody who came of age before the Y2K bubble with a roof over their head has a blind religious faith in the mythology of 1950's published laize faire capitalist fairy stories and blame the government on things which the private sector was at fault at. Damn Toyota's, Damn Computers, Perpetual Foreign Assault and the senseless crackdown of random Black Youths be socially acceptable.
Comedy is often the best medium for serious topics. It can make a difficult subject approachable and a controversial opinion easier to express.
Seems about right. I can only hope it's an evil leader with an empire that'll wake up one morning and ask "Why is he in charge again?"
