The Bin Laden Decade
In Friedman's post "The Bin Laden Decade" he addressed the damage done by Bin Laden to multiple countries, including America. Friedman relates the damage metaphorically as holes, only being dug deeper by the lack of political power. In the Arab countries who's governments ruled by fear, the people are no longer scared says Friedman, and in America, which was ruled by trust, the society is "more splintered than ever". I get the impression also, after reading two posts and and entire book of his, that he forces some relation to camera phones and social networking sites into everything he writes.
