Shipping Justice

The box is 10-by-6-foot, with an eight foot-high ceiling. Inside nothing exists but cold white walls, a platform with a measly mattress, a stainless steel toilet/sink fixture, a florescent light, and a slitted window to meet the bare minimum requirement for a human’s right to natural light.

Needless to say, the bright crate isn't delivering a diplomatic gesture of internationally prized oranges. And thankfully not a menacing experimental crowd control robot, either. It's actually a scaled replica of a maximum security prison cell at Guantanamo Bay where detainees are known to spend up to 23 hours a day in total isolation.

One of the more insidious ways to guarantee and reinforce a jihadist's instinct for revenge.

Add a pinch of torture, and voila, a great recipe for perpetual war.

Fits right in with the military - industrial - corporate - intelligence complex's desires. The cowboys need more indians to justify themselves.

Your taxpayer trillions at world.

Correction: Your taxpayer trillions at work.

Cowardly New World.
