Hello Winston Smith
Thanks to todays KBOO news we can now be certain that 1984 is now! The currents we smelled in the Reagan/Bush I years are laid out palinly in the current cabal's New American Century policy, but a careful observation reveals more insidious elements.The military industrial complex is supreme and democracy no more.

Why is local phone service so expensive?
Why is basic phone service so expensive? Given that nearly everyone has at least one phone -- and more often, several -- it would seem that service should be cheaper . . . or assorted taxes and fees associated with it, lower. There are more taxes associated with phone service than cigarettes or alcohol!

What does it take to bring about a change?
Reading this site, and listening to discussions and arguments in various places, I have heard many views expressed about what is needed to bring about change. There have been many discussions about tactics, strategies and approaches. There is the ever present discussion of violence vs non-violence. Some people argue for picking up the gun, some for strict non-violence, some for political reform, some for civil disobedience and revolution and so on...

What I hear little of, and what I believe to be more critical than all of these external considerations is recognition of what sort of human character and psychological foundation is needed to bring about a shift in the suicidal direction of our civilization.

To bring about a change, we need to examine our own psyches and uproot the disease of selfish indulgent culture in its many forms. Regardless of the outer discussion, internally it is necessary to be free of violence, violence against oneself. To be driven by despair, or anger, or conditioned response will not give the good result.

We need to have the courage to have faith in ourselves, faith in the intuitive intelligence that brought forth this beautiful world in the first place. That creative force is everywhere, and within us. We do have the capacity to create something positive. To develop faith, not in some religious dogma, or technological panacea, but in our own intrinsic nature, is the counter agent to the despair, greed and selfish action that is driving us towards extinction.

Seekers of power LEADERS NEED NOT BE SANE, RATIONAL, OR EVEN MENTALLY COMPETENT TO RULE A COUNTRY.

For the first time in nearly seventy years anarchist militants would be at the forefront of a class struggle in the Boston area, successfully leading a campaign for unionization using explicitly anarchist strategies, tactics, and methods of organizing.

A cynic might say that the true purpose of college is to teach exactly such lessons. After all, college graduates are a relative elite, comprising only 25 percent of the adult population, and they are expected to fill the kind of administrative and managerial jobs that make it a positive advantage to be able to starve workers, impose layoffs, and bust unions without losing a minute of sleep.

Raining on a parade--or, in this case, an anti-war march--isn't likely to win one popularity contests. But somebody has got to raise the alarm. The upcoming Oct. 25 march in Washington DC is being billed as a revitalization of the movement which made history with coordinated worldwide protests against the looming US-led assualt on Iraq Feb. 15. But the new mobilization actually represents a dangerous step backwards for the anti-war forces in the US.
