Response to “Some Final Thoughts on the Death of Osama bin Laden ...a letter from Michael Moore”
Even though I disagree with some of his background analysis, he really makes the most vital, important points that should be made about the assassination of bin Laden. Michael Moore is our last great prophet crying in a political, social, intellectual and spiritual wilderness more profound and enduring than Eliot’s Wasteland. He cries out for a restoration of an America that never really was. He and the bones of the dead cry for justice in an America that has forever abandoned even the old pretence of justice. Like our now lost earthly environment and all the creatures we have extincted, Justice in America can never be restored. All we will ever know between now and the end will be vengeance, power, violence and death. That is all the demonstrators in front of the White House that Sunday night were celebrating. That was the message of all the nationalistic hysteria (a combination of sports victory and Nuremberg rally) that took place at Ground Zero.
In Peace, Love & Rage,
