I just found out that back in 1992 Peter Gabriel founded a human-rights group called Witness that aims to use technology in the fight for justice. Gabriel had seen the effects the Rodney King video had on the trial... without that video the fascist bastards would have walked, like they usually do. The operative principle of Witness seems to be that Bad People can't get away with the shit they try to get away with if the Good People find out about it.

In this country we always assume that it's the Other Guys who do all the evil stuff... I often wonder how different the world would be if the average American had any fucking clue what their country does to maintain its position in the world.
