Still, the fact remains that only protest on a massive scale -- protest  that 
would be impossible to ignore, despite the efforts of the ruling class and  
our deeply corrupt media to erase all inconvenient facts and _all crucial moral 
(http://powerofnarrative.blogspot.com/2006/10/missing-moral-center-murdering.html)  from our national  discussion -- has even the slimmest 
chance of delaying or stopping what may be  the coming destruction and 
rearrangement of much of the world, including the  United States. Given the 
widespread ignorance and sloth of the American public,  such protest would have to be 
preceded by an educational campaign, one that  would provide Americans with the 
basic facts they require to understand how _eternally unforgivable an attack 
on Iran would be in the present  circumstances_ 
(http://powerofnarrative.blogspot.com/2006/04/morality-humanity-and-civilization.html) .

But as I have explained in many essays, going  back to February 2007 when _I 
laid out some steps_ 
(http://powerofnarrative.blogspot.com/2007/02/dispatch-from-germany-summer-of-1939_26.html)  for just such an educational  campaign, 
those basic facts are not that complicated. The problem is the blanket  of 
silence on this subject, the same blanket that suffocates our national debate  and 
restricts our discussions to a profoundly, _shockingly immoral, narrow range 
of permissible  opinion_ 
(http://powerofnarrative.blogspot.com/2007/11/regrettable-misjudgments-shocking.html) . We are dying -- and we may be about to 
become bringers of  death on a scale the world has rarely seen -- because almost no 
one has the  courage to speak forcefully, loudly and often enough on those 
matters that ought  to concern us the most, if that is, we revere human life and 
give a damn about  yet another chapter in our nation's continuing campaign of 
murder and  mayhem.

Over the last several months, the signs have been continually  mounting that 
an attack on Iran will come before the Bush administration leaves  office. The 
Republicans and the conservatives obviously have no objection: this  is what 
they want. And what have the Democrats been saying and doing? Nothing --  
except, as just one example, _running to AIPAC_ 
(http://powerofnarrative.blogspot.com/2008/06/why-most-people-wont-fight-take-back.html)  to assure everyone 
that the Democrats  too will make certain that Iran acts as we demand, because we 
demand it, because  we have the unquestionable, inherent right to demand it, 
because _we are God on Earth_ 
(http://powerofnarrative.blogspot.com/2007/05/songs-of-death.html) . You will do as the United States  orders -- or you, and 
possibly the rest of the world, will suffer the  consequences.
