Our America is those B-52 bombers flying 50,000 feet above China and Russia daily. Our America is power projection by deep air, and deep sea. Our whole security is based on having the biggest bats on the playground. No one is going to fuck with us. This is our attitude, based on pure fact.

I feel vital. As vital as any empire citizen ever was. I feel our scripted lives are so secure as to be banal. I like being bored. I like passing the time away in television, internet and brew pubs. I feel special. The fact that I have whole working classes supplying me everything I need makes me that much more arrogant.

Working for Bezos is icing upon icing upon icing on the cake. I very well may be the luckiest man on earth, but really, this has all been my birthright.
