According to Clancy Sigal, "Zero Dark Thirty is torture porn." He points out that in Hitler's Germany "masses of German ordinary girls saw what was happening - systematic mass murder - as a career move, a form of female liberation."
Indeed a lot of neoconservatives, tory neoliberals, labour neoliberals and other neoliberals have made their careers out of stomping on 'non white' blood.
Sigal concludes that "The feminizing of torture probably is here to stay on our screens."
So a message to all you British non white kids going through that tricky thing call adolescence (which these days goes on for SOME time beyond ranges which were once normal, thanks to hypersexual vision 24/7/365) remember - it may seem difficult, but your mind can help you rise above the difficulty of dealing with a society grooming its children and adults alike to torture you. No trial or conviction required. You're guilty on the basis of their own self-adulation - they need nothing as 'sordid' as evidence to implement their sentencing of you from day one of your life among them. I recommend you embrace the ideas of Norman Clegg and Nora Batty. When you are older you will realise you get the better deal. Try to be dignified in your suffering therefore, because one day you will have it all.
Also from Sigal's article: << In other words, aside from infamous camp sadists like Elsa Koch and Irma Gries (hanged for their crimes), masses of German ordinary girls saw what was happening - systematic mass murder - as a career move, a form of female liberation. (If you watch old newsreels, note especially the women's hysterical Nazi salutes and over-the-top approval of a preening Hitler.) >>
