Why I am Ashamed to be a U.S. Citizen

By Doug Soderstrom

I never cease to be amazed at how terribly ethnocentric
the typical American tends to be. It is almost as if having
been born in the United States confers upon one the right
to think of himself as a privileged person, a contrived sense
of status that no doubt lies at the very heart of everything
that I will discuss in this paper. Continue

Losing the Economy to Mythology

By Paul Craig Roberts

Economists are governed by the illusion that America’s post
World War II prosperity is based on free trade. It is not.
America’s post-war prosperity was based on the destruction
of the economic capability of the rest of the world by World
War II and communism/socialism. Continue

Over Hill, Over Dale: The Militarization of Culture

By Charles Sullivan

The glorification of war is nearly ubiquitous in the culture. You
see it in the vehicles we drive, aggressive behavior, excessive
national pride, flag waving, military style clothing, movies, video
games; and now—television commercials. The American consumer
is essentially becoming a piece of computer hardware programmed
to download propaganda and to execute its commands without
thinking. Continue

THEY REPORT AND YOU DECIDE. ANOTHER PERSPECTIVE;
HENCE, WE SHOULD ALL HAVE OPEN MINDS. AND WE
SHOULD ALL GAIN INSIGHTS FROM WHATEVER SOURCES
ARE AVAILABLE TO US. AND WHETHER YOU BELIEVE IT OR NOT,
THE ONLY WAY TO MAKE ONE'S EDUCATION WELL-ROUNDED
AND BALANCED, IS TO READ (OR WATCH) THE FOLLOWING
UNIQUE MEMBER OF THE FOURH ESTATE: FOXNEWS...! Is the
news balanced as indicated? That's for you to decide, and that's the
educational experience you should derive from this news exercise
of tolerance. You should be able to answer that question in no time
at all; it'll slap you in the face. But, in any case, the world has many
dimensions and points of view. Ignoring excellent sources of news
is the key symptom of a known degenerative mental illness called:
fossilization of the brain (a coined term for sure: but appropriate).

“So Who Are we Honoring Here?

By David Michael Green

Maybe this was once the land of the free and the home of
brave, perhaps way back in the olden times of the twentieth
century. But right now the free are at home with their
wide-screen TVs and the brave are retiring from the field,
exhausted and disgusted. Continue

and the mainstream media, and investigates U.S. foreign policy
throughout recent history, showing how it has contributed to
the terrorist crisis. With his famous wit and insight, Vidal also
demonstrates the ways in which the “War on Terrorism” is
being used to curtail civil liberties and shred the Bill of Rights.

To Bush, body bags and deaths are simply an inconvenience and,
with the help of the corporate media, he is very adept at hiding
them from prying eyes. Continue
