Every Palestinian is a militant because everyone (sooner or later) wants Israel off their land, out of their lives, and forgotten like a horrible dream. It is for this reason that they are all equal targets: none of them is intelligent enough to understand that their land isn't their land, their lives are not their lives, and their horrible dream is their present and future.
We note now and then in these very pages mention that a journalist has dared ask about some such subject as the deportation of ‘the dancing Israelis’, or of Dov Zakheim’s implication in ‘the 2.3 trillion missing from the Pentagon defense funds’, only to have been told that such questions are ‘forbidden’, otherwise meeting a persistent hail of flak, which only indicates the same thing and amounts to the same answer.
But ‘forbidden’, are they now? ‘Forbidden’, eh? Ultimately by whom?
According to The Club of Rome, the world problematique is the set of interlocking world problems, such as, over population, food shortages, non-renewable resource depletion, environmental degradation, etc. With the use of absurd, exponentially based computer models, the complete unravelling of society and perhaps the biosphere was predicted. Not surprisingly the only solution capable of adverting global catastrophe is the development of an organic society. As I will show, a global organic society is only a euphemism for totalitarian world government.
The NAU, a goal of the Council on Foreign Relations, follows a plan laid out by Robert Pastor. It is currently promoted by the Bush administration to expand the size and scope of NAFTA (North American Free Trade Agreement). Its goal is to effectively create a North American trading block by erasing the borders between the U.S., Mexico and Canada resulting in free, unimpeded movement of people and goods across those borders. It is also a political union that would integrate the governments of the three countries. And clearly it is an economic union with the intention of equalizing the wages and standard of living of all but the ruling elitists.
Nader pointed out the horrific corruption of the Bush regime, which none of the candidates have really done. As an attorney, Nader pointed out that professional attorney associations and bars around the nation are horrified at the egregious violations of the Constitution that have been hastily established, as well as all the civil rights infringements that have been perpetrated by the Cheney-Bush crime machine. He made a point of how the Democratic Party's advantage in Congress hasn't benefited the American people in the least. He stated that the American people are disenfranchised from their government, and are disillusioned with both political parties. And he pointed out the "third rail" of the entire Middle East problem, the unbelievable license given to Israel in Palestine. In other words, he stated reality and the truth. His run at the windmill is strikingly similar to that of Congressman Paul. In fact, he can be said to be the left's Ron Paul.
If history is any indication, we may be on the road to violent revolution. We got here because of the conservatives' war against liberal government.
It turns out that, historically, liberal nations make very poor grounds for revolution -- but deeply conservative ones very reliably create the conditions that eventually make violent overthrow necessary. And our own Republicans, it turns out, have done a hell of a job.
