The Internet is a wonderful thing, but it opens the door to many crimes, so you have to stay ahead of it.
We are all the foolishness and all the crimes we did. We're also all the kindnesses we did. I hate to think of life as if we understood time. We don't understand time.

Before Katrina, you didn't see criticism of the Bush administration in the media. Here they are, stealing elections, enacting illegal wars, huge crimes against humanity and democracy, and you didn't even see criticism. It wasn't until Katrina that people started to come down on them.
On television and in the movies, crimes are always solved. Nothing is left uncertain. By the end, the viewer knows whodunit.

Revolutionaries who come to power by force of arms usually have great crimes in their background.

Koizumi was not rooted in Japan's rightwing nationalist tradition: he was a pragmatist and a populist. Abe, in contrast, is a rightwing nationalist.
