The liquid world. By William Saletan

File under sad and scary. Also in Slate earlier this week, a writer made the case that the price of modern war for America, Israel and others, will be to accept the images of civilian casualties amongst our enemies.

The liquid world. By William Saletan: "So, what do we do? As Reid put it,
What happens when the threat to our nation, and hence to all of us as individuals, comes not from a fascist state but from what might be called fascist individuals? Individuals who are unconstrained by any of the international conventions, laws agreements or standards, and have therefore, unconstrained intent? Individuals who can network courtesy of new technology and access modern chemical, biological and other means of mass destruction, and who have therefore unconstrained capability?"
