Trillions now -- about $27,000 per household before
the dust is finished settling -- how soon before
we have to start counting in quadrillions?
That's the question novelist and columnist L. Neil
Smith asks about the monetary cost of this administration's
undeclared wars in Iraq and Afghanistan in his latest
essay for JPFO, "Is It Too Late For America?".
And that's before other, higher costs are accounted,
such as the loss of individual liberties in America,
and the ugly rise of fascism.
Happily, there's more than just gloom and doom
to report. The bad news, Neil observes, is forcing
a kind of convergence to occur between people on
the right, like Patrick Buchanan, and people on
the left, like Naomi Wolf, whose highest value turns
out (surprisingly) to be freedom.
The world will never be the same.
