Comments: Still obsessed with how our country is going to hell

When I read that Naomi Wolf article, I was cranky about her overstating her case. I think three of the ten things are stretches, things that she thinks the administration is trying to do, rather than doing. For instance, she counts under "arbitrary detention and release" people who got onto the no-fly list, and were not detained at all.

But on reflection, I think that even if it's not a great article, it's a good article. The point that "early on ... the horror is always elsewhere" is important. And, if nothing else, it's a good idea to kick up a big fuss about creeping totalitarianism just to alert the next president that it would be politically popular to, you know, adhere to the Constitution.

Thanks,
-V.
