“The death of the Islamic State’s leader in a daring nighttime raid vindicated the value of three traditional American strengths: robust alliances, faith in intelligence agencies and the projection of military power around the world,” says the NY Times.
Far from being strengths, those are in fact American weaknesses. Through imperialism, America becomes less prosperous, less secure, less free, and more unjustly violent and hence morally corrupt.
As for “faith in intelligence agencies,” I already have a faith, in which even the hairs on my head are numbered by God. I don’t need a faith so obviously absurd as this one, in which the NSA numbers my every text and phone call.
