The Peace Movement in America: Status Report

The world is rushing headlong toward world war, risking nuclear annihilation and the end of the human race. Eliminating geopolitical idiocy, imperial hubris, and monomaniacal delusions of conquest by challenging our warmongering elites with an effective plan of action should be what shapes and defines the struggle of those noble organizations attempting to abolish war and promote peace throughout the world. Otherwise, the next time I file an update, the response will be … “What peace movement?” Continue reading

The Politics of Panic and Puerile Propaganda

Every day I scan the pages and websites of main stream media and nowhere can I find a discussion of truly critical issues, much less a serious attempt to address them with cogent, creative, promising solutions. This should be shocking but it’s not. It’s the new normal. Continue reading

Why Donald Trump is not as horrible as Hillary Clinton … and why you should vote for Jill Stein.

Vote for Jill Stein! If that ends up electing Donald Trump, so be it. He’s a buffoon and will accomplish nothing. He doesn’t know his way around Washington DC and will be totally isolated. If Hillary gets elected, we will end up in a major war. She knows her way around the nation’s capital and is supported by Wall Street, the big banks, the multinational corporations, the MIC, and worst of all, the neocon-infested government and media organizations. These folks know only four things: War, profit, more war, more profit. Yes, Hillary may end up being the nation’s first female president. But she’ll also end up being the nation’s last president. Continue reading

It’s not easy being infallible . . .

Do you think it’s easy being infallible? Maybe we should ask President Obama at his next news conference. Continue reading

What Red State vs. Blue State Looks Like To An Ant

We are being kept disorganized and submissive by focusing on what divides us instead of what unites us. Bickering and name-calling only postpones serious efforts to address the greatest challenges we have ever faced and assures the inevitability of collapse and possible extinction of the human race. It’s time to put aside the “gang colors” of political parties and get some serious work done. We can start with the current election. If candidates don’t want to talk about real issues, they don’t deserve our votes. Continue reading

The Hands-Down Ultimate Super-Bowl of Showdowns!

You know how on the last page of a book it says, ‘The End’. Then you put the book down and life pretty much goes on like normal, except either you need to return the book to the library or take it down to a used book store and get a couple bucks for it. Well, this time we really mean it. So pay attention! Continue reading

Just a little . . .

It’s easy to confuse the little questions with the big questions. Language itself is often imprecise and misleading. Yet at other times it offers the appearance of an exactitude which is unwarranted, or at least inapplicable. Can we see the difference when we need to? Have we become so smart that we are outsmarting ourselves? Have we become victims of a conflation of logic and hubris? Continue reading

You say you want a revolution?

Is ‘revolution’ the new ‘LOL’? Will the profound need for radical transformation be trivialized and gutted of any substance by empty campaign rhetoric and fatuous sloganeering? Continue reading

A Swan Dive Into The Abyss

America is being hollowed out from the inside, becoming a lacquered shell of an empire filled with the abscess of its steady self-impoverishment. It is a swan gracefully diving into the abyss of its own disintegration. On its current course, either greed will drag its demise out over decades, or nuclear war will make the finality instantaneous. Continue reading

What Passes for Rationality in the Modern World

Who in their right mind would come up with MAD __ mutual assured destruction __ then destabilize it with policies which replace its precarious, paranoid, hair-trigger brinkmanship with more confrontation and a renewed arms race? Continue reading
