The monster in the mountains
Not everyone has access to The New Yorker magazine (my budget only goes so far, and I’ve run out of free access), so here is the URL for the”Monster In The Mountain“. A copy is at Borderlands Beat (here). The most important thing in this video, I think, is the reminder that this is not a “war on drugs” but a war on the poor. And, left unsaid in the seven minute video, a war designed to keep the poor in poverty. It was no mistake that the victims are the educated, the would-be educated, who threaten the “corruption and impunity” that are the real monster.
