i read the US guv'mint collected together the major comic books writers days after 9/11. their objective was to use these talented imaginations to unearth other ways or means terrorists may next use to strike within our border (now called Homeland for reasons unknown). i thought this was smart of our gov't agencies to do this. sure they have all sorts of think tanks at their disposal. those people are highly educated, and that type of brilliance is much different than the brilliance of imagination.

i never read any more about this get-together. if it really did happen, those that were invited were probably sworn to secrecy. they were probably given really cool badges or something, because what fan boy wouldn't want to be part of some secret Peace Keeper League? that would be farking awesome.

/ the whole Homeland thing creeps me out and smacks of Fourth Reich IMHO

Hidden between the lines is that they can use these studies to determine where the information comes from that gives the collective unconscious of the Internet the predictive knowledge. Then it's only a matter of time until everything we know is a shadow puppet show.
