"There is no horror, no cruelty, sacrilege, or perjury, no imposture, no infamous transaction, no cynical robbery, no bold plunder or shabby betrayal that has not been or is not daily being perpetrated by the representatives of the states, under no other pretext than those elastic words, so convenient and yet so terrible: 'for reasons of state.'"

- - Michael Bakunin, "Rousseau's Theory of the State", in Reasoned Proposal to the Central Committee of the League for Peace and Freedom, presented in 1867.

It's a metaphor.

What to do -- Congress sleep at the wheel?
Corporations fed last meal
What to do -- erosion of freedom?
National security trumping reason
What to do -- can't trust what you eat?
Corporations use brains as feed
What to do - a strike at the heart?
Apocalypse Now for you and I
