[324] � The people running the American Empire have no particular allegiance to the American people.� American stupidity has been cynically cultivated and used to get Americans to cheer bombings, wave flags, march off to war, and other acts of nationalistic fervor.� Every militaristic nation tells itself that it is the force of light and virtue, even when it kills off children.
