It's not just Alaska and Hawaii that are missing— the occupied territories aren't shown, either.

No, I think TLP is trying to say all the minorities were gotten rid of - notice how the map is all 'white'. (Which doesn't seem true to me, but it's not my blog.)

In the long run, a hierarchical society was only possible on a basis of poverty and ignorance.

The very word 'war', therefore, has become misleading. It would probably be accurate to say that by becoming continuous war has ceased to exist.

WAR IS PEACE

America is alone. This isn't even a geographic map with the American borders defined; it's just a cut-out of the mainland United States. You wouldn't know that Mexico or Canada so much as existed.

Yeah, that has the ring of truth to me.

And hasn't TLP mentioned before that 9/11 was like a narcissistic injury to us? So we end up responding, but our reactions all come from a kind of national narcissism, and narcissists don't connect well with other people, sooo...

You guys are over-thinking this. It's a map of the continental US. The same continental US that existed prior to September 11, 2001.

Nothing has changed. And not just geographically.

Speaking of which, would be interested in your, Mr. TLP (or your friends at Partial Object), decoding of the following decoding:

September 11, 2011 10:31 AM | Posted by rpg: | Reply

it means "9-11 didn't change America at all." I think that's why he avoided the typical construction "How Has America Changed Since 9-11?" America has changed considerably, but, as Alone suggests, 9-11 hasn't had much impact in the long run.
