The Lonely Hero

09-06-2004 17:06

"With the gradual loss of trust in God.. one is no longer delivered up to God's incalculable control. Rather one controls where one was previously controlled. One wants to be God where one no longer accepts God. This over-compensating reaction to powerless-ness is what I described elsewhere as a God-complex.." Horst-Eberhard Richter is a co-director of the international Physicians for the Prevention of Nuclear War.

The Reagan Legacy

06-06-2004 18:47

Usually, I am very reluctant to criticize the dead. However, since the corporate media seem so fervent in their desire to glorify Ronald Reagan and will probably do so for weeks, if not months, I believe an alternative perspective is only fair.

A referendum to recall President Chavez as well as a number of anti-chavista elected officials is being called for August. US pressure to overthrow President Chavez and get its hands on the oil of the venezuelan people is greater than ever.

Responsibility in Times of War

04-06-2004 19:44

"War is not a natural law. People have always sought to outlaw war and `civilize' war when war occurs, for example thorugh humanitarian international law. Wars are works of man. The contempt of international law is also a human work. Speaking of a self-dynamic of war as though wars can lead lives of their own without human decisions is a dangerous distortion.."

"Even the Wall Street Journal loyal to the government speaks of `incompetence' in the war against terror..Bush wants to move the rudder with words more than deeds. Six great television addresses - one every week - until the planned transfer of power in Iraq are beamed live at a prime US broadcast time in the living rooms of the nation..

The Disaster of the West

"A year ago Daniel Cohn-Bendit discovered almost `Bolshevist' characteristics in Bush's team of advisors, a sense of mission that is alien on principle to self-criticism... This is the oppoiste of what constitutes America's fascination up to today, the opposite of liberality. Still the bunker was broken open. America is becoming self-critical again.."
