America's Destructive Devotion To Greed and Violence
America's Destructive Devotion To Greed and Violence When questioned on New Year's Eve about the inevitability of war with Iraq, Bush replied to a reporter, "I'm the person who decides that, not you." Reminds me of a Caesar of Imperial Rome who contemplates world conquest as hoards of barbarians gather at the gates.

Our quality of life peaked in 1974. It's all downhill now
The reason should not be hard to grasp. Our economic system depends upon never-ending growth, yet we live in a world with finite resources. Our expectation of progress is, as a result, a delusion. Capitalism is a millenarian cult, raised to the status of a world religion; like communism, built upon the myth of endless exploitation. Just as Christians imagine that their God will deliver them from death, capitalists believe that theirs will deliver them from finity. The world's resources, they assert, have been granted eternal life.

Venezuela news search. Oil coup-strike-lockout for rich. Help President Chavez!
In 1974 80% of oil income went to the state. Today 80% of Venezuelan oil income goes to the rich, and to "operating costs." Only 20% goes to the state. Chavez reforms will help reverse this in January 2003. This is why the coup-plotters, "strike"-promoters, and corporate media are in such a hurry to overthrow the fairly-ELECTED Chavez government. They want to prevent these reforms, and reverse others already-implemented. Reforms that help the poor and lower middle class. Massive corporate-media disinformation, destabilization campaign going on inside Venezuela. Support President Chavez! Please forward widely.

ANALYSIS: Comparing Corporate Media's Berrigan Coverage
When you line the various corporate media up next to each

own original content -- most importantly who simply reprints
what the AP corporation tells them to write blindly. Here's
a bunch of stories I came across in an effort to do that.

Big Brother Says, "You've Got War"
This morning Big Brother AOL is blasting a headline about which stocks will make money off the war. Ugh. Let's see a picture of Steve Case's smiling robot face juxtaposed next to the picture of a dying Iraqi child. Is there not the slightest bit of decorum or decency left in the hearts of the moneymadmen? "The prospect of an invasion of Iraq has investors feeling jittery," it tells us in its inhuman, flat voice. "But the reality might not be so bad for the market. Some sectors and some well-positioned companies may even thrive."
