FUSE 24.4: Winter 2001

The world has changed – or so the claim goes – since 9.1.1. Just how it has changed, or how much, can be seen as a question of perspective: whether one perceives “it” as an unprecedented world event, or as a particularly horrific event that has brought anglo-North America into the real time that much of the world was already living. Either way, much is changing fast: public opinion polls are reporting alarming stats about citizens willing to give up civil liberties for a comfort and safety they thought they had, but never really did. Could it be that post-cold war “wars” and the “new wars” of global reordering are finally “trickling down” and hitting closer to home? At this juncture, we would do well to remember North America’s terrible history of internment in times of crisis for those whom it is always willing to read out the national body politic.
