Total Drek

Or, the thoughts of several frustrated intellectuals on Sociology, Gaming, Science, Politics, Science Fiction, Religion, and whatever the hell else strikes their fancy. There is absolutely no reason why you should read this blog. None. Seriously. Go hit your back button. It's up in the upper left-hand corner of your browser... it says "Back." Don't say we didn't warn you.

I am now fully convinced of the decline of American society.

Why? Two reasons. First, this clip from the television program Boston Legal. It does a good job of illustrating those things that we are losing in the present political environment, and making a case for fighting those losses. So why does this depress me?

Because we had to wait for a television program to make these points, instead of the people who should be leading the way. The American people are receptive to arguments about freedom and justice- so why aren't they being made?

But, instead of fighting for our rights, it looks like we're going to be content with our petty amusements. And by "petty amusements," I really mean this. I think it qualifies as evidence for the end of American society.

I don't even know why I bother anymore.
