Morris Berman (him again) says the SUV is symbolic for our stance in the 
world.  Sits high to see over the rest of the cars, big supposedly to be safer 
than the smaller cars, yet unstable and prone to overturning, and completely 
dependent on imported oil.  Quite the encapsulation of our society, don't you 
think?  The Hummer is out and out designed to emulate military vehicles (we are 
an empire after all), also a horrific gas guzzler of imported oil.  Berman 
wonders when they'll be coming out with tanks for individual use.  Seems 
tanks may not happen, so the next best thing is an AK-47.  So when everybody 
has an AK-47, they'll all have to escalate to the next bigger weapon.  Maybe 
tanks for individual consumption isn't so far fetched?

So comforting to know that crazy people have the right to own AK-47's for their 
personal protection.  Thank God for the conservative wing of the Supreme 
Court.  How else could socio-pathic paranoids freely express themselves?  I 
pray to God that their loved ones are shot down before any of mine.  Is that a 
terrible thing to wish or what?  It seems terrible but at the same time, so 
poetically just.
