So it turns out spying on PETA is not just for Ringling anymore, as the ACLU establishes that the FBI has been tracking not just the loudmouth AR organization but other vegans and environmentalists. Of course this is not news to those of us who have been following the story, but now other people are noticing, and with the recent news that the president can spy on anyone anywhere for any reason without asking permission of anybody, it takes on a special resonance. Now, there are of course individuals in AR and environmentalism who stoop to terroristic tactics, and again, those should be loudly and clearly condemned at every opportunity by those of us who can think straight. But it's also clear that this level of surveillance is far beyond a natural response to those elements and represents the concern of the establishment that ideas of peace, justice and holism may catch on if nothing's done to stop it.

So I'm probably tarring myself as an undesirable for baldly wishing for something so anti-American, but I gotta say it:

Peace on Earth.
