I don't even know what to say here.
First of all, let me say this type of story is the Holy Grail of Blogging. I don't have to write anything. I am writing this right now in my free time, but I don'thave to write anything about this story.
It is so awful and lunatic in every regard that I really could have just put up a blind link like i used to do -- the old ??????? headline, with the !!!!!!! link -- and the story would get 500 comments.
This is the sort of story that needs no additional writing. I'm writing extra stuff now because it's fun to do, which is why this post will generate so many comments, but nothing more needs to be said.
I don't have to employ any rhetoric. I don't have to overstate things to animate them about this. I don't have to "analyze" this and explain to people, in five bullet points, why this is wrong, or why this is embarrassing.
It's all right there, present on the surface.
Sure, it's fun at first, but it's the government, so it has to be government approved fun, with full propaganda value. Maybe with a little "public service" on side, like digging the graves of people who resist going to the government "fun camps."
