what's at stake? (english)
26 Aug 2003
Modified: 27 Aug 2003
What's at stake in the current cultural/class war? More and more every day, that's what. If the Patriot Act were just a sick joke, then the Victory Act would be a kick in the groin.
Our government in its incomparable wisdom is considering a plan to turn all drug users into detestable terrorist vermin.

Unless of course the drugs those sad sacks are using are hocked by corporations.

So there you have it folks. When they came for the potheads, I said nothing, because I was only an alcoholic on Prozac.

When they murdered the child molester in prison, I said nothing because he got what he deserved.

When they came for the anarchists I said nothing because I believed in democracy and even voted in the MoveOn primary.

When they came for the music downloaders I said nothing because I stopped downloading music after Napster.

When they came for me, there was no room left in the prisons, so they shot me dead right then and there.

Now I'm in hell, and I'll be damned if it doesn't look just like up there.
