In regards to the excerpts, and in some cases whole books, and much else, essays, etc. that are provided my "malcontent providers" (Some noted below, Third World Traveler, Z Magazine's, ZNet, ParEcon ("Participatory Economics (Parecon for short) is a type of economy proposed as an alternative to contemporary capitalism" - sledom hear much about all the 'corrective' factors - stay tuned - for such a fine running system), and others to be more fully noted, if only Affero or someone would connect with people who are grateful for this being available and who would 'donate' in whatever way they could. I did not have to see book prices and ever twindling "used" bookshops (still miss Roseway Books in Jamaica Plain, MA) to be aware of the cost of some new boxes. If only books were as ubiquitously accessible (aside from libraries..) and touted (by NEtWorked adS) as "private busses"- you know those Fossil Fuel Transporters (silly uBig vechiles would be just plain too silly) youmigth see up in the mountains, slopes, on the lakes but seldom nearly running over people walking, riding bikes, etc. Anyone with a different view might "sound like crazed Marxist lunatics. That just shows how much our intellectual life has deteriorated." Thought of that line when heard one host of DN! during a (gladly without hearing the * reports, where *is yet another uncritical reference to a source from a corporte view of reality) report on NYPD Attempts To Criminalize [a threat of a good example, and quite visible, as] Bike Riders Taking Part in Critical Mass say bike 'taking over" streets. It hardly needs be said that fossil burners are in the way of people walking, riding, pushing baby carriages, etc.

It is possible to value something very much, and be critical of it. Will say more about uncritical references later.

The cost of books struck me again the other day while in LPC's (below) - granted this is a range of prices but..."new book" arrivals, Community Windows, and Collective Library Syndrome later.

Like the ultimate binary choice, "Hegemony or Survival" - just the other day while "just browsing" at Lucy Parsons Center I was glad to see an updated edition on AKPress of Language and Politics, a fine reference -"his consistency of tone and ability to discuss anyone from St. Augustine and Galileo to Hume and Bakunin mark him as an intellect whose worst-case perspective of the Western world deserves a measure of respect.

Third World Traveler (www. "excerpts from the book The Culture of Terrorism by Noam Chomsky ( (format of five principles changed slightly)

"In conformity with these overriding principles, as we have seen, many crucial issues are simply off the agenda:

  1. the historical and documentary record that reveals the general and largely invariant guidelines for U.S. policies;
  2. the institutional setting within which policy develops;
  3. the recent (1980's) application of these policies in Guatemala and El Salvador;
  4. the normal conditions of life within the Caribbean and Central American domains of long-term U.S. influence and control, [and] what these teach us about the goals and character of U.S. government policy over many years; and
  5. similar matters elsewhere that might yield a degree of understanding of the origins and nature of the problems that must now be addressed. Such matters are not fit topics for reporting, commentary and debate. Rather, the agenda must conform to elite requirements, generally set by state propaganda, though debate is permissible insofar as dominant elites disagree on tactical and procedural matters. Within these limits, basic doctrines are beyond question and controversy. [For example], the firm commitment of U.S. policymakers to "democracy," economic development and human rights. Contemporary events must be reported and discussed in these terms, and historical memory must be shaped so that these doctrines are not called into question, or even considered controversial."

A History of Hope When Americans Have Dared to Dream of a Better Future by "James W. Fraser, Professor of History and Education and Director of the Center for Innovation in Urban Education at Northeastern Univer sity, Boston, Massachusetts. He is the author of Between Church and State."

Professor Fraser was on Radio with a View ( AirWaveWEB) on January 14, 2003 and quite possibly left many listeners hopeful that the interaction of efforts by individually connected active citizens and peace and justice o rganizations can and will have an impact regarding Iraq. And these processes along with existing ones will address and resolve issues worldwide.

...corporate control over water by Vandana Shiva

The Citizens' Network On Essential Services (CNES) works to democratize national and global governance by supporting citizens' groups in developing and transition countries that are engaged in influencing policy decisions about basic services: water, power, education, and health care.

It seems fitting to relate:

Coalition of Immokalee Workers - Boycott the Bell! Heard an John Grebe, Sounds of Dissent, interview on Oct 12, 2002.
Contact: Coalition of Immokalee Workers: Lucas Benitez 941-503-0133, Max Perez 239-292-3431; Student Farmworker Alliance: Julia Perkins 239-292- 3064, Office: 941-657-8311

Julia noted the marketing designation, if I have correct, HFFU's, refering to Heavy Fast Food Users, and Max noted Tricon, Taco Bell's parent company, clearly is attemting to market concepts, namely high calorie, low nutrition, and via its "sweatshops in the fields". I also liked what Julia said about "thinking outside the bun" and glad to see Adbusters. What an example of an organized effort.
