Trying to make the "popular front" more popular:

Roy Rollin | Albert Einstein once defined "insanity (as) doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result" each time. Karl Marx, who many of today’s liberal left leaders once claimed as a mentor, back in their younger, more radical days, was even more on the money when he wrote about history repeating itself...first as "tragedy," and then, later, as "farce." Only Marx was thinking about something reoccurring twice, not as any many times as “Star Trek” or “Honeymooners” reruns do. For the liberal left has been pushing the politics of “lesser evilism” under the guise of “fighting the right” as a matter of faith ever since the Stalinist Communist Party (CP) helped FDR co-opt the CIO into the Democratic party in the 1930s. This not only cut off any further labor radicalization at the time but prevented the formation of an independent union-based labor party as well, a price that labor and the left has been paying for ever since. They did the same thing with the struggles of the sixties and seventies; from the movement against the Vietnam war to those for Black and women’s liberation. And as we all know, only too well, they co-opted the antiwar movement into the Democratic party's 2004 presidential campaign under the guise of "Anybody But Bush" (ABB) even though the "anybody" was John Kerry, who, taking the support of the liberal left for granted, was anxious to appear even more pro-war than Bush was. more...  0 Comments

War Pigs Suck or Ever Wonder What OUR TERRORISM Looks Like?

vf | You try to put it out of your mind. Hope it's not too bad. Maybe it will go away, but you know it's there, happening over there, the killing, the murder by our military. Oh how tired we feel. We marched. Some of us got arrested. We feel justifiably burnt out. Right? Who could blame you or me for staying home? Who could blame us for not even getting off our asses any more. We are the victims we may feel in the deep recesses of our mind. We made an effort and it didn't change a damn thing. We may even indulge in a degree of self pity. more...  1 Comments

When is a War Justified?

Thomas Assheuer | What is the future of the United Nations when its most powerful member treats it with contempt?.. The conflict over anticipatory self-defnse, the right to bring the battle to the enemy, is the real reason for the crisis of the United Nations, not the skirmish over reform.. A glance at the history books shows that the American century will not last forever. Therefore it would be a command of political wisdom that the United States at the zenity of its power should advance a peace order. more...  0 Comments
