Nothing Is As Powerful As An Idea Whose Time Has Come, And Though You May Kill A Dreamer; You Cannot Kill The Dream.

Nothing Is As Powerful As An Idea Whose Time Has Come, And Though You May Kill A Dreamer; You Cannot Kill The Dream.



"The action I am taking is no more than a radical measure to hasten the explosion of truth and justice. I have but one passion: to enlighten those who have been kept in the dark, in the name of humanity which has suffered so much and is entitled to happiness. My fiery protest is simply the cry of my very soul. Let them dare, then,
to bring me before a court of law and let the enquiry take place in
broad daylight!"

- Emile Zola, J'accuse! (1898) –

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude
than the animating contest of freedom, — go from us in peace. We ask
not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed
you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and
may posterity forget
that ye were our countrymen!”

-Sam Adams-

Editor’s Note: President Barack Obama faces a nearly impossible task in untangling the economic and geopolitical messes left behind by George W. Bush – especially since Washington’s political/media Establishment consists of pretty much the same cheerleaders who advocated Bush’s policies.


But something even more troubling may be afoot as America steps into a future where war appears endless and peace may be impossible, as author Norman Solomon notes in this guest essay:


The United States began its war in Afghanistan 88 months ago. "The war on terror" has no sunset clause. As a perpetual emotion machine, it offers to avenge what can never heal and to fix grief that is irreparable.

For the crimes against humanity committed on September 11, 2001, countless others are to follow, with huge conceits about technological "sophistication" and moral superiority. But if we scrape away the concrete of media truisms, we may reach substrata where some poets have dug.


W.H. Auden: "Those to whom evil is done / Do evil in return."

Stanley Kunitz: "In a murderous time / the heart breaks and breaks / and lives by breaking."


And from 1965, when another faraway war got its jolt of righteous escalation from Washington's certainty, Richard Farina wrote: "And death will be our darling and fear will be our name."


Then as now came the lessons that taught with unfathomable violence once and for all that unauthorized violence must be crushed by superior violence.


The U.S. war effort in Afghanistan owes itself to the enduring "war on terrorism," chasing a holy grail of victory that can never be.
