I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again: George Bush is doing a better job of destroying the U.S. as a world power than any internal anarchist movement could. It’s hard to keep up with all of their screw ups. From illegal wars to torture to this latest report regarding borrowing money:
Washington, D.C. – President George W. Bush and the current Administration have now borrowed more money from foreign governments and banks than the previous 42 U.S. presidents combined.
Throughout the first 224 years (1776-2000) of our nation’s history, 42 U.S. presidents borrowed a combined $1.01 trillion from foreign governments and financial institutions according to the U.S. Treasury Department. In the past four years alone (2001-2005), the Bush Administration has borrowed a staggering $1.05 trillion.
Of course I’m kidding. We all know he’s no anarchist but he and his party is setting up a scenario in which anarchists might find more fertile ground for organizing. I’m sure the Democrats will make a feeble attempt at something but if recent history is any indication we can be sure it will be hollow and ineffectual.
Now the truth of it is that I’m off hiding in the woods and have been for 18 months. I’ve not done a damn thing but look at the trees. From this perspective in which the internet is my view of the world, what’s going on with north american anarchists? Anything at all? Is there any kind of movement?
