Re: <nettime> sfweekly/anderson: attack of the smartasses: America the Bereft

Post-9/11, America delves deeper into unreality, infantilism, and
non-information.  A nation of two hundred eighty million in denial, bereft
of those killed, and despairing of catharsis yet desperate for blind but 
unsatisfying revenge, thus ever more hideous escapism.
