States of Paralysis: America's Surrender to the Spectacle of Terror

Henry A. Giroux, Truthout: "As the link between the media and corporate power becomes more integrated, the visual theater of terror mimics the politics of the 'official' war on terror.

Bradley Manning."

CounterPunch
by Michael Yates

08/17/10

It is easy now to forget that the agents of repression — the police, the FBI, the courts, the government itself — consciously and actively targeted those who were active in and led the civil rights and Vietnam war resistance movements. They infiltrated and acted as provocateurs in movement organizations; they arrested innocent people; they enacted and enforced draconian laws; they illegally tapped phones and spied on any and all persons suspected of ’subversive’ activity; and they tortured and murdered those who they deemed to be the most dangerous radicals...
