A report from outside the USA

A friend pointed me to a story on jambase from Michael Kang (String Cheese Incident) and Chris Berry (Panjea), who are traveling in Africa, and this quote in particular:

I highly suggest all of you leave the Unites States at some time soon to remove yourself from the “psychic net” our government has craftily woven over our psyches. I imagine that I am preaching to the converted, but when you get away to see other parts of the world, it becomes painfully obvious how insane our way of life is in the US. Even though most people will take you at face value when they meet you, it’s obvious that the whole world is watching us in disbelief and amazement at the seeming apathy that has stricken our society. The concept of not voting is pretty foreign to most South Africans. I try to persuade the people I meet that there is a silent revolution happening in the States that is gaining strength, but the more I say it, the more I realize that it’s time for all of us to really stand up for what we believe in and manifest change. I know that many of us are doing exactly that, and I just want to let you all know that I will be here to help in any way I am able.

    Yeah, it’s the gov that’s woven a “psychic” net around us. Uh huh. Sure. It’s not the corporations selling us endless crap, it’s the gov. Sure uh huh.
    David where do you find such drivel? Oh. Jambase. Say no more.

    The American government and “the corporations selling us endless crap” can no longer be distinguished from one another, Pete. Not since the oil industry’s hostile (and illegal) takeover of the executive branch.
