- The world is a dark, scary place full of deceivers and liars.
The world is a happy, bright place full of trustworthy, altruistic people.
My info: Let Them Drown, by Naomi Klein
Just as bombs follow oil, and drones follow drought, so boats follow both: boats filled with refugees fleeing homes on the aridity line ravaged by war and drought. And the same capacity for dehumanising the other that justified the bombs and drones is now being trained on these migrants, casting their need for security as a threat to ours, their desperate flight as some sort of invading army. Tactics refined on the West Bank and in other occupation zones are now making their way to North America and Europe.
