Some Good News

Here's a pretty old legacy post from the blog archives of Geekery Today; it was written about 20 years ago, in 2004, on the World Wide Web.

Here, at least, is some good news: a Chilean appeals court has lifted Augusto Pinochet’s immunity from prosecution for crimes committed during his seventeen-year reign of terror from September 11, 1973 to March 11, 1990.

Whether you take it as a fortunate bit of synchronicity or as a sign in these dark times, the hope that war criminals on the lam might at last stand accountable for the thousands they have left murdered or maimed in their lust for power should be a welcome one–even though our own remain tenuously shielded in the comfort of their homes, for now.

Let us realize the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice. – Martin Luther King Jr.
