"Sooner or later people will wake up.
First we have to dump the trap of right and left,
this is a Hegelian trap to divide and control.
The battle is not between right and left;
it is between us and them."

--Anthony Sutton, 1999

Social Fear and the Commodification of Terrorism
"Commodifications of fear ultimately rely on manipulation
through nostrums and ignorance.

There is, though, a real front-line of homeland defense:
teachers who refuse to mouth official dichotomies
of good and evil,
students who refuse to accept an uncritical perspective,
and parents who refuse to barricade their homes
against foreign ideas and people.
A radical rejection of social alienage
is at the heart of this homeland defense.
It is an expanded concept of homeland defense which recognizes
that contemporary American social fear derives ultimately
from fear of the global poor and dispossessed,
those with causes for anger.
Western economies have privileged capital over labor,
and have exported the social fears of capitalism —
unemployment, impoverishment,
inadequate health care and education
— to obtain Western prosperity. "

Myths Over Miami
"To homeless children sleeping on the street,
neon is as comforting as a night-light.
Angels love colored light too.
After nightfall in downtown Miami,
they nibble on the NationsBank building
always drenched in a green, pink, or golden glow.
'They eat light so they can fly,'
eight-year-old Andre tells the children
sitting on the patio of the Salvation Army...
Andre explains that the angels hide
in the building while they study battle maps."

The Chrysalis is inspired by a round, stone-hewn Aztec calendar.
I asked myself, “What if there were a musical instrument
in the shape of a wheel?
And what if this wheel had strings for spokes,
could spin, and when played,
would sound like the wind?”

Secret 9/11 case before high court
"It's the case that doesn't exist.
Even though two different federal courts
have conducted hearings and issued rulings,
there has been no public record of any action.
No documents are available. No files.
No lawyer is allowed to speak about it. Period.
Yet this seemingly phantom case does exist
- and is now headed to the US Supreme Court
in what could produce a significant test
of a question as old as the Star Chamber,
abolished in 17th-century England:
How far should a policy of total secrecy
extend into a system of justice?"

About Kumari Devi
"From time immemorial the practice of worshipping
an ordinary pre-pubescent girl
as a source of supreme power
has been an integral part of both Hinduism and Buddhism,
a tradition which continues even to this day
virtually in every household.
They call this girl Kumari Devi
and worship her on all the religious occasions."
