We’re launching yet another war against a Middle Eastern country on the basis of false pretenses. Our own damned government is spying on our every communication. People who expose crimes by our government are thrown in prison for decades or forced into exile and hiding. High ranking criminals get away with their crimes. The rich keep getting richer at the expense of everyone else.
