Vengeance or Resolution

State television and radio in Yugoslavia drove scapegoating for IMF austerity measures into an eight-year civil war. State television and radio in the USA is in “competition” with corporate media to see who gets scapegoated for privatization measures here. Lacking suitable ethnically identifiable enemies, outraged Americans are left with only vague corporate, government, and party affiliations to fuel their resentment. A wholly unsatisfactory opportunity for either vengeance or resolution.
