The Homeland Battlefield: ‘Hedges v. Obama’ lawsuit challenging NDAA (indefinite detention etc.) begins today in NYC.
[This is as in "Chris" Hedges, the war correspondent for The New York Times for two decades and author of nine books, including "Triumph of Illusion", "Christian Fascists", "Losing Moses on the Freeway", "War is a Force that Gives Us Meaning" and Death of the Liberal Class." He was also arrested at Occupy Wall Street following the "Arrest George Bush" encirclement of Goldman-Sachs last fall by Occupy all Street when Dubya was ACTUALLY MEETING with executives at Goldman-Sachs!]
Chris Hedges: “If there is no rolling back of the NDAA law, we cease to be a constitutional democracy. Totalitarian systems always begin by rewriting the law. They make legal what was once illegal. Crimes become patriotic acts. The defense of freedom and truth becomes a crime. Foreign and domestic subjugation merges into the same brutal mechanism. Citizens are colonized. And it is always done in the name of national security. We obey the new laws as we obeyed the old laws, as if there was no difference. And we spend our energy and our lives appealing to a dead system.”
