Blue meaniesA friend asked me what are neocons. I couldn’t tell her exactly. Neo-liberals bent on world subjugation? The asshole elite? It seemed easier to define them by what they are doing, rather than what they say they look like.

I settled on an analogy with the Nazis. Hard to say what a Nazi is. National Social Democrat something something. Fascist doesn’t come into the official title. You know Nazis when you see them. You certainly know Nazis by their deeds. Neocons are like that.

The Beatles had already conceived of the fascist industrial asshole archetype. They called them BLUE MEANIES. Talk about “vaguely reminiscent of the sixties.” You think the war protests and environmental activism of today remind you of the sixties? The villains are the same. Blue for blue-blooded, blue for cold-blooded.
