The Face of Protest is A Changin'
21 Mar 2005
Modified: 22 Mar 2005
The critical issue to emerge from this weekend is not medical ethics, but the failure of the US anti-War movement to focus public attention on the fear, death and suffering caused by President Bush's foreign policy. There are two reasons for this failure: control of the media by political forces that support the Evangelical agenda, and refusal of the US progressive movement to move beyond the protest style of the 1960s anti-war movement. As a result, the new face of protest in America has shifted from anti-war to religious militancy.

Two Minutes of Silence for Dr. King
21 Mar 2005
April 4th, 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated. Monday, April 4th, 2005 will mark the 37th anniversary of this tragic day. It is however, widely acknowledged throughout the world that Dr. King was our drum major for peace and justice.

Intellectual Ferment in the Party
21 Mar 2005
QUESTION: I was just wondering if you could speak a little bit to how--while not throwing out democratic centralism or something like that--how do you have the party in the mix of all of these ideas? You went to China and you talked to these people around how China was opening up to the West and saying Marcos was a great leader and this, that and the other, and you were asking these people in the Chinese party and they didn't have the answers. And part of it is: did those people not have the answers, or did they have some questions on it, but they were more debating it internally and they couldn't talk to you about it? How can you have the mix of people being able to be in the midst of all the questions that are going on, intellectually--political questions, but also in the ideological realm--without breaking democratic centralism? How do you have people in the mix of that, being able to engage it and even in some ways go off in the wrong direction in order to eventually get to the right direction, but then not have that cause a splintering effect. You know?
