War & Peace


Alex Gourevitch | Despite various protests and challenges, the Bush administration's war on terror continues to dominate American politics. A group of writers, activists, and students, who run the initiative Against the War on Terror have organized an event, including Christian Parenti and Corey Robin, to discuss what the problem with the war on terror is, and why opposition so far has been ineffective. The purpose of the event is to keep speeches short so there is plenty of time for debate and discussion. The event is FREE, this Saturday, Feb. 25 at CUNY Graduate Center. more...  0 Comments

"Accuracy in Media" Validates Goering's Axiom

Walter C. Uhler | "Why, of course, the people don't want war...But, after all, it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy or a fascist dictatorship or a Parliament or a Communist dictatorship

[Democratic] voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them that they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country." --- Hermann Goering

Complete liberty of contradiction and disproving our opinion is the very condition which justifies us in assuming its truth for purposes of action; and on no other terms can a being with human faculties have any rational assurance of being right --- John Stuart Mill (from, On Liberty)

Beyond Mere Survival in the American Dystopia

Populist | 1984 has come to pass, both chronologically and in the Orwellian sense. Americans are "liberators" in Iraq. Opponents of this "peace initiative" are "doubleplusungood". Unchecked by the judiciary, the NSA electronically trolls for perpetrators of "crimethink". Pundits and the "liberal media" (owned by a handful of monolithic corporations despised by people with the values which many define as liberal) have become the Ministry of Truth for the Party... more...  0 Comments

Land of the Puppet People

Manuel Valenzuela | It oftentimes boggles the mind to try and understand the ease with which the Establishment can manipulate the American citizenry into another warmongering escapade..yet it is easy to comprehend this phenomenon, for we live inside the United States of Amnesia, a country where all semblance of the yesterday becomes but a haze of blatant forgetfulness and convenient whitewash.
