<nettime> Popular apologetic uprising

If seems the outcome of America's recent presidential election has given rise 
to a very interesting crop of web sites that allow grieving american people 
to apologize to the rest of the world.  

While some measure of comfort may come from reading the contrition, 
forgiveness and solidarity being expressed globally on sites like http://
sorryeverybody.com, it is quite compelling to think about the oppositional 
potential if all of these voices could be organized into an effective 
instrument to restore sanity to the leadership of the country that is 
presently the world's most powerfully pugilistic.


ps: I too wish to take a moment and apologize for the conservative 
capitalistic 'oilgarchy' setting about carving up the world to feed the ugly 
appetites of its children.

Peace and Love,
-Phil Duncan
