A clearer focus on the evils of math and science (or how a corrupt society uses them)
The math content displayed by the academics... , though characterized by great complication... , seems quite thin, because it has become unrelated to "practical" creative development, and the stable and fundamental systems of: the nucleus, the crystal and the solar system still go without valid descriptions (calculations) based on what is claimed to be physical law, ie the patterns of colliding elementary-particles, the function space models of general quantum systems, general relativity, etc.

"To Protect and to Serve"
"To Protect and to Serve" was a motto adopted by LAPD way back when. It has a ring to it and a history, and also can be interpreted in various ways. But maybe if some simple meaningful statement, or motto, was stenciled on the cop car doors as a reminder of their legitimate mission...

Karl Rove, Netanyahu and Islamic Uprisings
The hate machine, lie machine, and the money machine are all on full blast with intent to kill any chance progressives and liberals have standing—especially President Obama and some Senators. The Republican strategy has been to deny, ignore, deceive, and attack. What is also becoming known, since there is now no other viable alternative candidate in Ron Paul, is that the Romney/ Ryan team will likely be a huge disaster in the making for a majority of Americans. So despite what well seems like another stolen election in the making, such as with disenfranchising voters with new State laws, alienated, apathetic, disappointed, disheartened, angry, resentful, confused, Americans, and all independent minds must get out and vote in huge numbers this election—because this election still deeply matters.

Government—never clarified what constitutes a (belligerent); or militant; or what belligerent activities (directly aligned with a militant) to order a belligerent's arrest or indefinite detention. Sections of 2012 NDAA are so broad, it appears U.S. Government or the President could (retroactively) deem an American's past 1st Amendment activities prior to passage of 2012 NDAA—supported hostilities, terrorism or (Belligerents) to order the arrest and Indefinite Detention of any U.S. Citizen, writer, group or organization.

Brief history of western civilization (with focus on the US)
It is clear that (now, 2012) the west (the US) is a corporate controlled state, an oligarchy, where violence is organized by the state to support corporate interests, and the corporations control the propaganda which includes politics, law, education etc.. what is created in the US state is controlled by the corporate interests.
The US is still participating in its original Revolutionary War, where the issue is about equality, and the relation that equality has to both knowledge and creativity. Equality allows clarity.

They are fighting for principles: the defense of public schools and the right of young people to a decent education.

How the Nazis Won the War
Former IG Farben Headquarters, Frankfurt By the time dictatorship had fallen in the East in 1990, the US had formed one in the west of Europe, which then expanded east to Russia's borders. As if Nazi Germany had been successful in Europe, minus the anti-Semitism, or with Muslims as the new scapegoats, and serial wars of aggression then continuing as part of a remade neo-fascism, operating on an audience of subjects agape at powerful modern media and cringing from the baton-blow shock on the collective psyche of mass shootings, disasters, profitable health scares and threats of more to come.

Economic Growth vs. Environmental Protection
Portland is blessed to be nestled between the coast and Mt. Hood National Forest, surrounded by fertile farmland, and is more hospitable for a healthy human presence than most places on the Earth. As droves of hopeful immigrants arrive, the economy is stretched and the forests are at risk. With an earnest sense of awe about Portland as is, I wonder what the future will hold for this area. People who otherwise seem interesting get Starbucks coffee instead of supporting a local cafe across the street. People drive past Parr Lumber to Home Depot when there is a sale. Will there not always be a sale?

In Service to Power: A First Read of Michelle Obama’s Speech
As the U.S. sinks further and further into economic decline, with 23 million people unemployed or underemployed and one report after another detailing the everyday sense of dread the average working class family faces with a declining standard of living, cuts to education and vital services for those most in need, the tightly controlled spectacle called the Democratic National Convention featured First Lady Michelle Obama on Tuesday, September 4th. The convention appeared little different than parties built on the personality cult of the Great Leader upon whom all aspirations are placed. There was little to distinguish the Democratic National Convention from the gross rubber stamp party congresses of the old Stalinist parties, with functionaries clapping in approval, on cue, for popular consumption.

A bill opposing the shackling of pregnant prisoners, AB 2530, has been passed unanimously by the California State Legislature and is now on Governor Jerry Brown's desk, with thirty days to either approve or veto it. Last year, a previous version of this bill was also passed unanimously by the Legislature, but it was ultimately vetoed by Brown. With Brown's decision expected anytime, local activists are urgently mobilizing to stop him from vetoing this important bill once again. AB 2530 supporters have created a webpage for the public (not just California residents) to contact the Governor.

How is it to be fun?
It's been almost a year since Occupy Wall Street began and quickly evolved into a nation wide series of events. In that time we have witnessed an increase of attention and interest in anarchism and black bloc activity. We are excited about all the new arrivals but are also concerned for their safety. There are many texts available about black bloc tactics as well as about how to minimize your risk of experiencing harm while engaging in these kinds of actions, but these texts are largely only available through obscure publications and websites. We wonder if things would have been different for the Cleveland five if they had been able to access some of this information prior to winding up in a police trap. The following is a letter to the new arrival, may it find you well and be of some use to you as you experiment with new means of approaching freedom.
So you caught wind of some of the media hype about the black bloc or maybe you saw us at a protest doing what we do and now you want in. Sweet, welcome! We're not an organization so you don't have to sign up anywhere, we are people all over the world who employ a certain tactic against domination when we see fit to do so and we're excited to meet you. Together we'll create and destroy history. However, before crossing that line into illegality with us there are some things you could benefit from knowing and considering.

Life Is Sacred
I retreat in the summer to the mountains and coasts of Maine and New Hampshire to sever myself from the intrusion of the industrial world. It is in the woods and along the rugged Atlantic coastline, the surf thundering into the jagged rocks, that I am reminded of our insignificance before the universe and the brevity of human life. The stars, thousands visible in the night canopy above me, mock human pretensions of grandeur. They whisper the biblical reminder that we are dust and to dust we shall return. Love now, they tell us urgently, protect what is sacred, while there is still time. But now I go there also to mourn. I mourn for our future, for the fading majesty of the natural world, for the folly of the human species. The planet is dying. And we will die with it.A village boy leads his goat past a parched pond on the outskirts of the eastern Indian city of Bhubaneswar. (AP/Biswaranjan Rout)

The giddy, money-drenched, choreographed carnival in Tampa and the one coming up in Charlotte divert us from the real world—the one steadily collapsing around us. The glitz and propaganda, the ridiculous obsessions imparted by our electronic hallucinations, and the spectacles that pass for political participation mask the deadly ecological assault by the corporate state. The worse it gets the more we retreat into self-delusion. We convince ourselves that global warming does not exist. Or we concede that it exists but insist that we can adapt. Both responses satisfy our mania for eternal optimism and our reckless pursuit of personal comfort. In America, when reality is distasteful we ignore it. But reality will soon descend like the Furies to shatter our complacency and finally our lives. We, as a species, may be doomed. And this is a bitter, bitter fact for a father to digest.

Sleepwalking Progressives and Climate Change
You know, the climate change news the past few months has been momentous! Historic droughts, historic heat waves, Mississippi River 50 feet lower than last year and low enough to be halting barge traffic. Add that to the weather of the past few years and it is clear and obvious that climate change is happening faster than predicted and it is going to have an overwhelming impact. Extreme weather is draining resources, drastically reducing crops, burning vast areas of forest. The top scientists of our time are bluntly saying we are on the brink of climate change so great that human civilization as we know it may cease.

Enter Karl Rove—Need One Say More?
The hate machine, and lie machine, and the money machine is on full blast with intent to kill any chance liberals have standing—especially Obama. The President had better find a fighter within himself because he is being challenged in a awfully big way. Americans are angry across the divide. "Many" republicans are angry as well. They know that Mitt Romney did not truly win the nomination. Rather they well realize he was foisted on the party by the sophisticated propaganda machine, the mainstream media and people like Karl Rove and billionaire donors like Sheldon Adelson. We Americans need to be reminded, again and again, in loud and bold terms, of Karl Rove's last protégé. Another disaster in the making, with Rove's knack for choosing people who don't understand moral ethics, despite rhetoric to the contrary. "Karl Rove Is Back With HIS New Choice*!*!*" ought be the clarion call for today's Paul Revere. Which brings us to an important question, if lying to the public like a psychopath, were the criteria to judge those who work in the capital who would be left standing? Certainly not Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan?

As negotiations enter their final stretch, it is imperative to get the word out on how CETA could further jeopardize our political and economic sovereignty. A NAFTA-style free trade agreement with Europe that gives corporations further powers to influence Canadian laws would be dangerous and destructive. Considering the deepening economic crisis in Europe and the real possibility that the Eurozone could break up, this is also the wrong time for Canada to be entering into this trade deal with the EU.
