Different Aims, Different Methods: On the incompatibility of reform and revolution
Reformist consciousness is always expressed in the form of justification.
Contrarily, the behavior of the rebels seemed unjustifiable.

Radical libertarian Vin Suprynowicz has written an exciting novel of rebellion in a fascist America of the not to distant future.
et Cornwell is even more damning of the Pope when he deals with an area where Wojtyla is widely praised: his commitment to human rights. While he was brave and tough and right in his criticisms of communist tyrannies, Cornwell shows Wojtyla has been persistently soft on fascist regimes. He refused to back the Catholic priests begging for his support in their resistance to neo-fascism in South America in the 1970s and 1980s. He has vigorously disciplined any priests inclined towards liberation theology, while relentlessly promoting Opus Dei, a group with explicitly fascist roots and a key plank of support for General Franco.
This day that sees all politicians, from Fausto Bertinotti [PRC] to Alessandra Mussolini [ex-AN, "neo-fascists"], bow down in front of the "throne of Peter" we want to remember the man who was at the head of an absolute monarchy distinguished for centuries in its barbarity. The church that has perpetuated and blessed the massacre of millions and millions of men and women, tortured, burned, killed in the name of the cross isn't the memory of a now disowned past, but found in Wojtila, its deserving descendent.
firewall after downloading Buzzflash's gophypcrite of the Week!
I checked out my firewall after going off line to see who and how many times my computer was attacked and the following ip's came up: 184.108.40.206 and 204.284.231.157.
Here's the link for gophypocrite of the week.
Here's what up

What we have placed in front of you here is the legal case against Dick Cheney and other persons of interest within the U.S. government. Such evidence should constitute the foundation for articles of impeachment and criminal prosecution against George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, and their accomplices.
I went to open the post and got an error message and when I went back, it was gone and I don't see it in the Compost bin.
I think we all know this, but Harry Browne says it better than anybody else I know of
note: due to the lapse in time that it took me to get this posted, the strike actually ended yesterday. VAT will go into effect in 20 states.
With the release of Frank Miller's adapted comic to a live action movie, Sin City reminded me of a work of Frank Miller entitled "Give Me Liberty" wich led to the Martha Washinton series. A synopsis of the comic follows.
O.K., We're Fucked!
May the grace of God shine on Pope John Paul and the entire world.
There are many words in our language that illicit strong emotions. In name calling the propagandist tries to attach a negative emotional message to what seems like a normal communication. Glittering generalities involves the skillful use of words that already have an emotional message attached to them.
It seems you doofuses are still blathering on about Terri Schiavo and very little else. So I drew up a little list of just 5 big stories that ain't being discussed... Hopefully it will clear some of those cemtrails from your membrane.
Here are my responses from another forum on sexual/racial discrimination. If you want the original email the person I replied to sent, PM or email me ( email@example.com ). Also be sure to check out English parts of sisyphe.org
I want to shout out my support from this neck of the woods
I first learned about this action by listening to Lars Larson on his hate radio show. It was lunchtime from work and I was taking Poindexter to the dog park in Ashland and yes, i was listening to Lars. I can not help it, I am a media junkie, and listen, read, and watch the right wing media all the time.

With Terri gone, they don't know what to do. What can they report about on the news that will keep viewers glued to the tube until Prime Time?

All day today I am hearing in the backgound, mostly NPR but no doubt all over the airwaves, Bush's annoying voice saying --
"I trust you with your own money. I think congress should trust you with your own money."
One of those soundbytes that function as unpaid commercials for Bush.
The true results of the social security reorganization.
here is some from one of personal favorites. and for those of you that fell the corporate media suxx, here are some linx to alternative sounds that you won't hear on the radio. (except for KBOO, perhaps).
There's an interesting development in on-line news. OhMyNews had a big effect in S. Korean elections recently. We could use such an operation in Portland, OR to replace the Oregonian.
As many Indy regulars undoubtedly have known all along, the Schiavo circus was NEVER about Schiavo, it was ALWAYS about overturning the filibuster in order to pack the federal courts with ultra-right or fascist judges. Including, most importantly, the Supreme Court.
"We need common sense judges who understand that our rights are derived from God. Those are the kind of judges I intend to put on the bench."

Can the Left Tolerate a Dissenting View on Ward Churchill?
These people claim moral high ground in their double speak. Who in the media is allowing this shit to pass without notice? When are you going to wake up and get these people out of our lives!
Tribune attempts snarky comment on Indymedia reporter but only reveals their own ineptitude.
FROM POLITICS TO LIFE:
Ridding anarchy of the leftist millstone
Questioning the framing narrative of the Terri Schiavo story as created by the religious right, and the version provided by the media...
getting involved in leftist politics is a strange experience.
Donors to the "save Terri Schiavo" fund find their names and e-mail addresses being sold.
I find this really sad..
The religious right is being used to repeat history. The British and the Romans did it to the Celts. Separate a people from their land and concentrate wealth in the hands of a few.
or the anti-war movement, the history of the past two years is one of failures. The shutdown and disruptions of San Francisco and other cities have not been repeated. An enormous amount of energy was diverted into the failed Presidential campaign of a pro-war Democrat. The protests marking the second anniversary of the invasion of Iraq were dwarfed by the mobilizations of February 15 and March 20, 2003, which garnered public opinion the title of "the world's second superpower" despite—or because of—the powerlessness of mass marches to deter the march to war. (The endorsement of the NY Times is perhaps a good sign that a movement is failing to really challenge power.) Anti-war forces are splitting, with liberal groups such as Moveon.org refusing to call for the withdrawal of troops and bickering becoming increasingly public between mass-mobilization coalitions United for Peace and Justice and Troops Out Now! (see: http://nyc.indymedia.org/feature/display/145170/index.php)
Far from showing signs of winding down the war, the Bush Administration seems to desire to extend it to Iran, Syria and Venezuela, while settling in for the long haul in Iraq and Afghanistan. Clearly, mass mobilizations and support of the Democratic Party are not getting the goods. It is past time to go back to the drawing board and figure out how to build an anti-war movement that is capable of ending this war while and by building independent bases of power that can be used to effect future social change. The intent of this article is not so much to break new ground as to synthesize what has already been said and spark discussion.
What's up at Rense? The Schiavo spin makes FOX News look tame these days

The New York Times was outraged that China, a human rights outlaw, would criticize America's human rights record, but the Chinese report is in fact right on target, and should shame all Americans who care about the state of our own rights and freedoms.

i tuned in after it started, so i don't know who's hosting it, and who's the guest, or whatever, but it's a great discussion about OHSU and all the money they waste. man, what a corrupt institution! they're like halliburton or something!
While international news medias focused on Arafat's Swiss bank account, an investigation into one of the largest money laundering scandals in Israel's history has been tightening an investigative net around suspects already linked to nefarious arms deals, murder, conflict diamonds and state departments in other nations.

I made a call to an internet service provider to inquire about services. What happened after I reached them, their automated system asked if my phone number was: 555-555-5555, if coreect press one, then the automated system asked if my address was: 123 any street, press one.
I read where the Judge who had refused to hear any more arguments, was expelled from his church for not giving in to the religious right
I don't know if anyone has posted or stumbled across this site before, but in case no one has, I wanted to draw attention to the latest strategies being used for "Coup - Made in the USA" ...
It seems really strange that these U.S. groups, NED etc. would so blatently brag about the fact that they orchestrated recent events in Serbia. And that PBS would so innocently post ALL this fantastic information about HOW TO ORCHESTRATE a 'successful' Revolution!
This may be a re-post. Even if so, it is worth a read - or re-read.
Basically, it presents a pretty good parallel history from 1947 to present of Islamic fundamentalism and US neocons. Check it out.
Who's organizing the May Day protest? Will there be one? We need to start organizing now. If actions are not made, it'll be as if we gave up. Our power is dying. Our events are getting smaller and smaller. Isn't this our wake up call to do something?
