A catechism for the first decade of the 21st century

1. I believe that the U.S. deliberately invaded Iraq with fewer forces than necessary in order to create a debacle. Bush and the neocons want a war that will last indefinitely, distracting the world community from the sorts of issues it was beginning to talk about before September 11 – like raising the minimum wage and how best to defeat corporate globalization.

2. I believe George Bush and Co. are implementing disastrous economic policies at home not because they are so ignorant but because they are shrewd: an America that is falling apart is easier to manipulate than one which enjoys general prosperity (that one would vote Democrat).

3. I believe another free and fair presidential election will never be held in the United States EVER. Democracy has been phased out, without most people even noticing.

4. I believe the Democrats will never win another election – at least, not until America is in such a mess that the election is rigged to ensure that the Democrats have to pick up the pieces and create something for the Republicans to steal again.

5. I believe that Tony Blair is an undercover operative for a secret organization that tells him what to sing and when to dance. I don’t know what the name of this organization is, or where its headquarters are, but I bet George Bush, John Howard and that Aznar guy are also members.

6. I believe that John Kerry went into the 2004 election knowing he would never be allowed to win. He probably doesn’t even want to be president, at least not right now. That would mean dealing with Bush’s mess – not a good idea if you want to be re-elected!

7. I believe George H. W. Bush is the most evil man who has ever walked the planet. And yes, he killed the Kennedys.

8. I believe once a nation has been taught to revile liberalism it is on the fast track to barbarianism.

9. I believe that the U.S. is the closest thing to an evil empire which has ever appeared on this earth. After all, the Nazi empire in Europe barely lasted 2-3 years.

10. I believe that the U.S. is going to collapse the way the Soviet Union did within ten years. And Jesus, I am looking forward to it!

'he killed the Kennedys'

Well, it wasn't you and it wasn't me!
