critical farce redux (rethinking next month's critical mass)
as alex wrote in the last comment under the 'critical farce' post, there's a severe lack of defensive preparation for cm these days. i wouldn't even call what we've got going every last friday 'critical mass'-- a few times on this last one i was forced to answer the 'hey, what are you all doing?' question with 'well, it used to be called critical mass, but now it's called critical obedience'.

"Facts interest me, not theories. The fact is the US consumes more than it produces. There is a gigantic growing annual US foreign trade deficit of $500 billion.. The wars of the US are not an expression of strength but an attempt to prove something that is disappearing, the global power of the US.. The fear spread by the US seems to me the last convulsion of global US power.." Translated from the German

OREGON: The Only State That Finances Euthanasia For The Poor
THE Doctor Kevorkian...? Fact is, many of us are way cheaper dead than alive. I hear all about so-called safeguards against non-voluntary euthanasia, but as soon as your medical bills exceed your tax-paying productivity by $140 -- I wonder if that's annualized -- you, too, can qualify for better-off-dead status. Just so you know.

Weapons Of Mass Stupidity
How stupid are we, finally, how easy to fool? Fox News is run by the insidious Roger Ailes -- image merchant for Nixon, Reagan and Bush senior, producer for Rush Limbaugh, newsman never -- and Fox is not what it seems to be. It's not a news service, certainly, nor even the sincere voice of low-rent nationalism. It's a calculated fraud, like the president who ducked the draft during Vietnam, and even welshed on his National Guard commitment, but who puts on a flight suit stenciled "Commander-in-chief" and plays Douglas MacArthur on network TV.

Deflation Threatens. A Specter goes about in Germany
"The International Monetary Fund recently warned of a `deflationary development' and a dangerous intensification of the economic crisis in Germany.. Deflation is characterized by a lowering of price levels on a broad front and thus by the increased purchasing power of money. The cause is a surplus of the supply of goods over the demand for goods. A deflationary gap or demand gap occurs.." Translated fromGerman

Ecofascism
In our zeal to condemn the status quo, radicals often carelessly toss about epithets like "fascist" and "ecofascist," thus contributing to a sort of conceptual inflation that in no way furthers effective social critique. In such a situation, it is easy to overlook the fact that there are still virulent strains of fascism in our political culture which, however marginal, demand our attention.
