Western civilisation is a twat fest of epic proportions, yes. Don't think I don't want corporations like Coca Cola held accountable for things like, oh, bottling plants in drought zones, turning a blind eye to paramilitary operations in South American countries, and all the rest of it.
Fucking saints in comparison though. When was the last time you saw a government sponsored attempt to assassinate people over funny drawings of Jeebus? What about a mildly provocative book accusing God's Zombie Son of being a bit gay? Perhaps we could call it, oh, "The Luciferian Verses", or something.
Wonder what would happen if a certain satirist that worked hard to expose Coca Cola were an Iranian, exposing Iranian fuckwittery? You think he'd still be alive?
This isn't a Holier Than Thou attitude. It's shooting fish in a barrel, because it's so damned easy. Wonder why that is?
Incidentally, Belching Out The Devil is a damned good read, and he's done an hour or so long documentary on the subject if your Youtube-hunting skills are up to the task.
I still wonder whether Mark Thomas would be alive if he were an Iranian in the same line of work. In fact no, I don't wonder at all. I think you and I both know he'd be in a box by now.
