The Defenders of "Civilization"

So Prince Bunnypants is once again on the the warpath to save civilization. He's been saying this shit for 5 years now: "We wage a war to save civilization itself. We did not seek it, but we will fight it and we will prevail."

Who knew that the way to save civilization is attack without provocation, to eavesdrop without warrant, to imprison suspects incommunicado, on secret evidence, while torturing them? Seems rather like raping for chastity to me. And suggests that our current rulers have no concept of civilization, except most definitely, as the inarguable Higher Good which makes necessary the many evils they so enthusiastically perpetrate in its name. It's like "freedom" to them, another magic word, about which they have very foggy notions.
