“Coercive Democratisation”. Wonderful description isn’t it. It’s from the mouth of a former White House advisor now fucking up students’ heads at Oxford University, as heard on the BBC’s 10pm news (19/11/03) on Radio 4. It must be a first, where invading a sovereign state and occupying it, and then going on to kill around a 1000 people a month has been described in this way. And the speaker (whose name thankfully I’ve forgotten) went on to use this phrase to justify the use of this double-speak as the imperium proceeds apace in its attempt to conquer the planet.
