Back in the USSSSSS…………………A

 

 

As the US prepares to extent legislation to ‘spy on’ its own citizens in the name of vague ‘national security’, we remember with certain nostalgia the ironic Beatles song ‘Back in the USSR’.

Ah…the song’s longing, nay happiness, in returning home to the land of thought control, spying, and throwing people into prison without much of a pretext.

America is fast becoming a state punctuated by the demands of overarching organisation, manageability, and calculation, with the sole aim of reducing law and order to one standard…something Germans in the 1930s knew as ‘ausgleichung’.

As Pogo presciently observed almost a half century ago, ‘we met the enemy and it is us!’
