Introducing A Game As Old As Empire
13 Mar 2007
Modified: 05:06:11 PM
After the Economic Hitmen retire from their cushy jobs of raping nations under "legal cover", they write confessionals as victims of conscience. Should we have let go Adolph Eichmann too had he written a confessional? The latter was the harbinger of misery to millions of peoples for a short span of a few years with just the stroke of a pen, and we tried him in Jerusalem. Whereas the former are the harbingers of the continued entrapment of entire nations in inextricable systems of poverty and misery for generations and they walk free in suits and ties, sometimes even heading prestigious economic institutions. Should we applaud the former EHM and absolve them of their own past monumental crimes just because they are revealing it all now post faits accomplis and laughing their way to the bank? Or should we use this information in informing our own Moral Activism to prevent future fait accompli? Should we demand from them that they deposit all the proceeds of their confessional writings in trust for the benefit of the nations they raped? Should we do something about the empire's "legal covers" and condemn them unequivocally as deliberate enablers of multi-color-collared crimes against humanity by the emperors? The choice of Moral-Activism is ours! To exercise this choice efficaciously however, we must be addressing the issues at the right levels of abstraction! The highest order bits are in the intellectual space!

The Tasks of the Immigrant Workers’ Movement: For a working class program!
13 Mar 2007
As we approach the first anniversary of the immigrant worker mega-marches, the struggle for our rights continues. We defeated the Sensenbrenner bill, and yet the attacks on the families of undocumented workers have intensified. Dozens of raids, the limitation of habeas corpus, the militarization of the border, “no-match” letters, and other attacks on our class must be met with a decisive response!

We need a clear program of struggle that can lead us to victory – to full amnesty and equal rights for all immigrant workers and their families.
