Yeah - No kidding

It'll happen.

Naomi Wolf laid it all out in The End of America. Here's how incrementalism works: Obama is already killing US citizens with drones - but they're brown citizens, so everyone kind of just ignores it. Sure that kid was a citizen, but he's brown, and he was over there.

But the precedent has been set. Citizens are killed by executive order. Through incrementalism, it isn't much of a stretch until they're killing "regular" ones, right here at home.

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.
