24 Jun 2012
We will examine issues of land reform, urban agriculture, rural development, fishing rights, and food sovereignty within a dynamic political context.

The Movie J. Edgar; Just More Hollywood Lies
24 Jun 2012
While the movie J. Edgar ignores J. Edgar Hoover’s many successes in silencing American Blacks, leftists, and persecution of homosexuals, it starts out by “justifying” the 1919 Palmer Raids. J. Edgar Hoover’s involvement in the Palmer Raids was at the beginning of his long sordid history of carrying out political repression in the United States. The Palmer Raids, led by Attorney General A. Mitchell Palmer with J. Edgar Hoover on his staff, rounded up leftists including Anarchists, Communists, and Socialists for prison and deportation. Among the many crimes committed by the government, hundreds were deported, including Emma Goldman, a leading anarchist and U.S. citizen who was deported to the USSR, Socialist Party leader Eugene Debs was thrown in prison, and the young communist movement was driven underground.

One Way Workers Become Worth Less Alive Than Dead
23 Jun 2012
Often enough the idea corporations are helmed by heartless people that don't care about the welfare of the workers underneath them, is attributed to propaganda from the political left. In fact, the only party in America (as we really have only 2 choices) that is associated with the left often marginalizes such talk, except when they are campaigning of course. We have been fed a steady diet laced with the idea all things favoring "workers are bad." This has been going on at least since the early 1980's, and, whether Republican administrations in talk backed up by action or Democratic administrations in actions that go against their rhetoric, workers have been labeled as bad guys while corporations are presented as victims.
