Shop till you drop: The battle cry of the war on terror
from the article this piece goes with:
It's easy to blame Iraq on a small cabal of neocons and a bumbling president. But real fault lies with the American people as well. Americans now ask more of their government but sacrifice less than ever before.
This rejection of sacrifice on a national scale contributed to the bungled war the United States finds itself in today. The war on terror is not simply a neoconservative project. It is as much a neoliberal project, shaped by views about the role of government that enjoy broad public support.
