Hippocrates and the Holocaust
"A Hippocratic oath-`I say NO to everything that helps promote wars and lets people die" may not only be an intellectual game. How would a binding scientific ethic appear that soberly and rationally confronts the possible apocalypse? On one side, gthere is no denying or forgetting the accumulated knowledge. On the other side, everything that can be done is separated from everything that may be done."

A critique of 'fair trade'
I hear a lot about 'fair trade' and also a lot about 'ending subsidies' and I find that I am adamantly opposed to both concepts, not on the basis of economic principles, but on humanitarian grounds.

Rights of the Environment: Ecology and Eco-Fascism
"Eco-fascism means the spread of eugenic and racist positions through seemingly ecological arguments. Biologism means transferring alleged laws from the animal- and plant-worlds to human society... The supposed overpopulation is made responsible for the destructionof nature, not capitalist exploitation." Crisis is also opportunity. Let us resist the rightwing nullification of the rights of the environment!

"The main effect of the book was and is important apart from the question how prophetic was the study in all its individual analyses.. The prognoses of Dennis Meadows and his research team have not been fulfilled. Perhaps they have not been fulfilled because they brought many to reflect as the theses of Malthus did or in Meadows' case to rethinking or shifts in thinking." translated from the German

ART OF WAR: Dreams of Muhammad
Dreams of Muhammad IN MEMORY OF THE PALESTINIAN BOYS KILLED BY ISRAEL. These
Palestinian boys were gunned down, often by Israeli snipers from fortified positions, that
picked them out of the crowd, using high power rifles with telescopic lenses and
silencers, who shot these boys in the heart, in the head. They were among the more than
140 Palestinians who were killed during the first month the intifada;
killed before there were any suicide bombings in Israel,
killed for daring to throw rocks at Israeli tanks,
killed for wanting their FREEDOM!

On Zionism #2 13.11.2003 22:19
Opportunism on the Left with Regards to the Palestinian Struggle
We work hard for this un-recognition of "israel" by opposing normalization of relations with it. We maintain as the Palestinian National Charter did that armed struggle is the only negotiation with Zionism we advocate, and that it alone will lead to the liberation of Palestine and its return to the Arab people.

On Zionism 13.11.2003 22:15
Its Time to Radicalize the Concepts on the Arab/Zionist Struggle
It is time for the international Anti-Globalization movement to take up a more concrete analysis instead of clinging to stereo-typed "reasoning". There is no solution but to eliminate the Zionist/Imperialist project, otherwise, it'll only be a slow process of self-consumption, while the enemy gets stronger. And it should be understood that to resist Globalization, you should resist "Israel", and the opposite applies: To resist Globalization, you must resist "Israel", not on the level of policies, but on the level of function and mechanisms, that is: existance.

The free market, not the free citizen, is made into the supreme aspect of economic and social policy..Is this to everyone's advantage? Reality often appears different. Winner takes all is ultimately the motto of boundless competition." translated from the German

Is War Our Biological Destiny?
In these days of hidebound militarism and round-robin carnage, when even that beloved ambassador of peace, the Dalai Lama, says it may be necessary to counter terrorism with violence, it's fair to ask: Is humanity doomed? Are we born for the battlefield congenitally, hormonally incapable of putting war behind us? Is there no alternative to the bullet-riddled trapdoor, short of mass sedation or a Marshall Plan for our DNA?

Profit maximiza-tion was always the goal. All human life, all social compromises, the remnants of culture and even the nterests of the state bureaucracy should be subordinate.."

Bush Bodyguards OKed to Fire on anyone "threatening the life" of the Prez while in London
"We are on the highest alert that we have ever worked at," he said. "We are working two-and-a-half times harder than we did at the very height of the Irish terror campaign."

Scotland Yard has cancelled all leave for the three-day visit and mobilised 3,800 officers for the 4million security operation . . . the Met and the US Secret Service have reportedly agreed "rules of engagement" allowing Bush bodyguards to shoot anyone they believe is clearly threatening the life of the President.

Sounds a little like Bush's fund-raising appearances in the US, doesn't it? What a collossal waste of money.

BUFFALO COMMONS: Boldest idea in US today
It sounds cruel to say so, but towns like Rawson are a reminder that the oversettlement of the Great Plains has turned out to be a 150-year-long mistake, one of the longest-running and most costly errors in U.S. history. Families struggled for generations to survive droughts and blizzards, then finally gave up and moved on. You can buy a home out here for $3,000, and you can sometimes rent one for nothing at all if you promise to mow the lawn and keep up the house.

Beware Disinformation during Presidential Campaign
The 2004 presidential campaign is well underway, and it's gonna be an ugly one. If you're someone who sees the demopublican duopoly for what it is -- a single corporate monster with two heads -- you've got tough times ahead. The Anything-But-Bush people are desperate, and are already getting shrill in their demands that no one on the left or elsewhere do anything but toe their party line. Their tone is that of an angry, jonesing addict who needs another hit; in this case, the drug is political power, not a chemical substance, but the urge is no less destructive. Unlike an individual junkie, though, these people will take us all down with them if they get their way.

Dirty tactics will be the name of the game from democrats and republicans both, and the former will be no less cunning in their lies. Already the disinformation is appearing. Posts on this site that falsely accuse Nader of losing Gore the election in 2000 are becoming more common. Today, a ridiculous assertion appeared under the title, "Ralph Nader accepts millions from Bush", and the editors of this site had the good sense to compost it. The accusation is entirely false.

Cannon Fodder
The Bush administration has cut veteran's benefits and forced wounded soldiers to pay for hospital meals. They have kept returning sick and wounded soldiers in horrible conditions on US military bases and made them wait months for doctor's appointments. Now, they plan to close schools and commissaries on military bases and privatize the remaining commissaries. Oh well, that is more taxpayer money for Halliburton, Bechtel and all other corporations which profit immensely from war.

A strategy to protect Miami FTAA prtests from police abuse
Below is a strategy to deter Timoney(of R2K fame) from violating the rights of FTAA protestors. He is in charge of security and cannot be trusted. If Monkeywrenchers and other "night direct action" activists were to select a list of corporate "contingency targets," announce that they had done so(but not announce the particular targets themselves), and then stand ready to go after them, Timoney will have no choice but to think twice about brutality, mass arrests, or other such illegal violations of the First amendment.

US Soldiers Retruning to Cheers?
The below story is horrible! How could any American help speed the war machine?
We need to stay a peaceful country and supporting the troops is the wrong way to do it.

I urge all that see troops returning home for this so-called-war to let the troops know what you think a simple boo or child killer would do. If the media, troops and administration see that American's are not happy with what they have turned our peaceful National Guard reserve force into killers for oil they will see more disfavor. Every troop return needs to meet with protest to the war.

These national guard troops are supposed to be here to protect the physical united states soil and for state natural emergencies like fire and flood not to go to kill others on foreign soil for his oil.
