VIDEO: BookTV Discussion of Rachel Carson "Silent Spring" (tags)

Paul Driessen is author of "Eco-Imperialism: Green Power, Black Death." Linda Lear is author of the biography "Rachel Carson: Witness for Nature." "We care more about our green lawns than about songbirds. Pesticides are persistent and can't be simply repressed. Birds and fish have injested pollutants. Humility and arrogance are part of our collective life story. We are not in control of nature and have to think of the whole of things, the interlocking nature of life.." RELATED LINK: "Trees have Standing" William O. Douglas, the longest serving Supreme Court justice (35 years), was an uncompromising civil libertarian and lover of life. Growing up in upstate New York, he grieved when lakes became cesspools. Lakes are not anti-freeze and mountains are more than landfill. Reducing nature to short-term profit is a blindness and path to anthropomorphic self-destruction. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_O._Douglas

Nor how they are going to organize to fight the Democrats. They are instead preparing to cyberlynch John Murphy, the delegate from Pennsylvania that I wrote about in a column earlier this week.

Life is full of topics that are difficult to breach, but there are some issues that are so problematic that we pretend they do not exist rather than confront them.

A trademark of these types is that they never contribute anything of substance. Their refrain is "so and so is a... blah blah."

Anti-Authoritarians of Color! (All you "Tanarchists") (tags)

"...But this! Year Zero, will be ours! If we allow ourselves to sleep, we will sleep with one eye open. If we dare to dream, we will dream on our feet. And when the nightmares return pounding on our doors, they will find us awake and armed, because our memory is fire in the house of centuries past." -El Compay Nando

One way we can inform ourselves and others! (flyer art) (tags)

This is a flyer I've been passing out to hundreds of people where I am. I hope you will find a flyer of this type--broad demystification orientation--valuable enough to either use this same one or make one even better. The trick is, make one that may "bridge" with as many people as possible, instead of the usual "single issue" (usually topical) flyer we see all over. The beauty of this method is that it undermines all the "us vs. them" hysteria that most anti-war protesters are facing when they remain stuck in the single issue of the situation in the middle east.

I Was Censored -- Please Take My Place & Confront the Racists on Their Own Site! (tags)

A few days ago on www.indymedia.org, someone posted information (under the title "people who hate") about a hate-fomenting anti-immigrant website and their on-line discussion group. I visited the website, read their stuff and let them know what I think about their paranoid calls for a "race war," etc. Suddenly, without advance warning or discussion, the webmaster of this "free discussion" site BANNED my ID Number, so I can read, but not write! Just goes to show I was getting to them ... Now its your turn!
