A Thanksgiving Prayer

Wm. Buroughs does the honors, in this video. Not the first time that I've linked this, but it's been a few years, and it is Thanksgiving after all.

"A nation of finks" doesn't sound too out of line in the context of Total Information Awareness, Patriot Act warrantless searches and wiretaps, monitored checkout lists at libraries, and where Bush nearly had a private army of meter readers and mailmen peering in our windows. So far in the US, popular resistance against these acts hasn't focused on the government's effort to spy on the people, however -- the biggest complaints were about the government's attempt to get the people to spy or inform on each other. This could change soon, however, especially if the enemy is eventually defined as "the enemy within"... and that day seems closer all the time.
