The Big Chill

“In my country ’tis of thee, more and more words are being auto corrected, more mics are being turned off and more stories are being left untold. And what we are left with are the fairy tales, myths and fabrications of the dominant culture where war is the red, white and blue path to peace, greed is nice work if you can get it, and the conquerors come as billionaires bearing gifts. Nowhere has this chilling effect been felt more than in the twin towers of education and journalism. As these kindred professions go, so goes the nation and where it will stop nobody knows. In the age of austerity, scapegoats are needed and truth telling educators and journalists have been primed to be culled from the herd.”
