“Curious” George?

You will find my own comment amongst the bloggers where I disagree with part of this analogy. But it is an interesting one…

“This is George.”

“He was a good little monkey and always very curious.”

“He lived with his friend, the man with the yellow hat.”

“One day, the man with the yellow hat took George on a tour of Washington, D.C., and showed him all the sights, including the ones most people don’t have access to.”

“The man with the yellow hat gave George a pass that provided him the highest level of national security clearance, and then remembered that he needed to pick up some other papers at Kinko’s.”

“‘Tour the national security apparatus carefully while I’m gone,’ the man with the yellow hat told George, ‘and don’t get into any trouble.'”

“Well, George explored the Pentagon, the NSA, the CIA, the lobbyists’ offices, the weapons makers, AIPAC, the Washington Post, and the White House. In the White House he found a war room. George remembered what the man in the yellow hat had said, but sometimes it’s hard for a little monkey to behave. When a monkey sees a war room, he just has to start a war.”

“George put on a military uniform and pranced around a big table, and under and over it, and pretty soon he forgot all about being good. He began ordering major wars. He ordered people brutally tortured until they agreed to made up reasons for his wars.”
