Fabulous Guantanamo Torture



The sadistic component that accompanies all power regimes tends to appear in a particular way in Neoliberalism. Indeed, this latter mutation of Capitalism, particularly in ned of making a profit from human pleasures and pains, inevitably leads to an increasingly intense conquest of his dark areas, as is the case of the enjoyment at contemplating others' suffering. This would be not only a prosperous new business niche for mass tourism, but also would offer an effective financing instrument to these increasingly widespread and costly repressive institutions, consistent with the tendency to privatization of this kind of state services, as well.
