Can democracy survive an open-ended, borderless war against an abstraction ("terrorism")?  Recent reports of FBI abuse of National Security Letters and increased surveillance of ordinary life make us wonder.  Clayton Morgareidge draws on Michael Hardt's and Antonio Negri's book Multitude: War and Democracy in the Age of Empire to explore these questions.  The piece ends with the song "Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream" as sung by Satori, Men Singing Peace.  Their concert, "A Time for Peace," will be at the Old Church following the Saturday Rally and March.
