_ With the war on Terror still at its heights Florida mothers go one step further.
Security Mums like they are called do not speak up for the complete protection
of the American territory but plead for the total security of their children.
And that in a very extreme way ! Paranoid is more to the point.
If they wage war on everything what could jeapardize the security of their children
those women dare to give up their carriers, swear to a kind of family which falls
outside the scope of any ' normal ' analyses, barricade themselves into their
homes and induce reasons to keep the kids from school and why they should
raise them in their own mids.
So they escape reality and live apparently an autonomous existence.
But estranged in this way from what is going on in the dangerous outside
world these women submite themselves to what terrorists really want_ the
total deruption/ alienation of America's social life.
As these fresh currents infiltrate familiar strata of belief ( and which society
in not based, is not keen upon/ for the notion of having at least the children
safe), they tend to colour the notions already ' in stock '.
These ' social/ cultural pre- suppositions, still ' in solution ', active but pressing,
but not yet fully articulated define forms to formalize formats to confront the
These women are all for Bush and his politics, but what they IMO don 't
acknowledge is the fact that there is a difference, a potential conflict between
the practical and the official. These women feel they are oppressed and their
real life situation asks for more than one solution, but that ain 't the official,
read Bush' political point of view.
Bush can try to set America free from the direct terrorist danger, but he can 't
set his people free from the aggregate of life experiences, like paranoia and the
outward expressions directly connected to them ( behaviour).
The atmosphere of unfixed inner emotions, like fear, and outer speech ( Bush
his statement that the War on Terror will take time) endowns down the very
behaviour and actions of the women involved.
If their number, like it is growing already, will reach its peak, the terrorists will
have won their war. The women involved try to universalize their belief and
values in order to get support, but framing their beliefs in such a way may and
will run against their own interests. In the long term they will loose.
