“The purpose of war is indeed war itself. The justifications are always pretexts.
David Swanson

"Discomfort is an essential part of learning."
Judith Butler

"We can either have great concentrations of wealth or we can have democracy.  But we cannot have both."
Louis Brandeis

“A basic principal of modern state capitalism is that costs and risks are socialized to the extent possible, while profit is privatized.”
Noam Chomsky

“I think it is appropriate to ask whether this trend [growing income and wealth inequality] is compatible with values rooted in our nation's history, among them the high value Americans have traditionally placed on equality of opportunity.”
Janet Yellen
US Federal Reserve Board Chairwoman

“There’s class warfare, all right,” Mr. Buffett said, “but it’s my class, the rich class, that’s making war, and we’re winning.”

6/10/1994, Jackie Goldberg speaking before the tenBroek Society, St. Francis Hotel, SF:

"Cynicism is the biggest blockade to progress right now. Cynicism is the biggest method of social control in America today. It is what prevents young people...from feeling their own power. We had disillusionments, but we weren’t cynical. We believed you could change the world and we tried to do it and many of us continue to try to do it."

Peace Day
September 21

America is trapped in a never ending cycle of enormously profitable warfare. The public relations packaging is always the same: "We are fighting for freedom and democracy." Who better to believe that than the idealistic and young? The truth however is cleverly hidden in plain sight: We are sending America's young men and women off to protect the global interests of wealthy and powerful mega-corporations based on US soil.
Mark Ash


'One threshold really needs to be both stated and restated as we consider the options, and that is that it is fundamentally unsustainable to continue spending $10 billion a month on a massive military operation with no end in sight.'
John Kerry
Washington Post5/10/2011

"In the last ten years our wars have been paid for by borrowing," Al Franken 4/6/2011

"When the most powerful country ever to inhabit the earth finds it so easy to plunge into the horror of warfare but almost impossible to find adequate work for its people or to properly educate its young, it has lost its way entirely."

Barbara Boxer pushes for Afghan exit strategy
Carla Marinucci, Chronicle Political Writer

Asked whether she would eliminate any government programs to reduce the national debt, Boxer said to applause, "Well, the biggest one is the wars."

The Atlantic, June 2010Letters, page 12

The Causes of Inflation

I’m glad to see Michael Kinsley (“My Inflation Nightmare,” April Atlantic) raising the issue of the unavoidable connection between budget deficits and inflation. Another connection is also rarely dealt with by economists or the press: the connection between budget deficits, inflation, and massive military spending. It cannot be just coincidence that hyperinflationary pressures so regularly follow, about a decade later, periods of massive military spending, whether the wars be hot or cold. This pattern is seen across nations and across centuries.

'Every Man in This Village Is a Liar'
Rayyan Al-Shawaf, Special to The Chronicle

Every Man in This Village Is a Liar
An Education in War
By Megan K. Stack
(Doubleday; 255 pages; $26.95)

" the foundering war on terror is 'essentially nothing but a unifying myth for a complicated scramble of mixed impulses and social theories and night terrors and cruelty and business interests, all overhung with the unassailable memory of falling skyscrapers.'"
