|10,000 gathered today in Seattle to protest "President" Bush's
war doctrine. While
analysis might cause some USA-firsters to cheer, such "patriots" should
look more closely at real conditions in the US, especially in regard to
education, healthcare, labor, and civil liberties. If the new world order
is to mimic the corporate model, life worldwide will indeed become very bleak
for all but a handful of the economic elite. Small acts matter. Do something

Washington State Congressman speaks his mind... in Iraq
Like Nelson Mandela, the Czech playright Vaclav Havel was a political prisoner
who went on to lead his people. Here are his thoughts on hope: "[Hope is]
a state of mind, not a state of the world. Either we have hope within us
or we don't; it is a dimension of the soul, and it's not essentially dependent
on some particular observation of the world or estimate of the situation....
Hope, in this deep and powerful sense, is not the same as joy that things
are going well, or willingness to invest in enterprises that are obviously
headed for early success, but, rather, an ability to work for something because
it is good, not just because it stands a chance to succeed."
~Disturbing the Peace, 1987
