Civility for Dummies

Calling for "civility" in response to abuse and criminality is wrongheaded. 

Blame Pres. Obama for refusing to prosecute Bush-Cheney-Rumsfeld-Rice-Powell for organizing torture & engineering public deception to wage illegal war in Iraq. Bullies are emboldened when there is no accountability. We're adept at ignoring our own genocidal crimes.
  • Until the 1860s we allowed buying, whipping, owning "colored" people, and subsequently let former "owners" keep all proceeds from their now-illegal trade. 
  •  Native lands & resources are being stolen even today.
In semicivilized America, civility is a dummy (pacifier = what babies suck)
