It is not that we are inured to the suffering of the Paleatinians. Although I wouldn't be surprised if many people around here don't want to hear. After all, we need to survive - physically and emotionally.

"We are a people tending toward democracy at the level of hope; onanother level, the economy of the nation, the empire of business within the republic, both include in their basic premise the concept of perpetual warfare.
