Drone Warfare: Killing Our Civil Liberties With a Joystick

Ed Kinane, Truthout: ''Drone warfare is cowardly. A technician jiggles a joystick. Seconds later, thousands of miles away, a Reaper drone robot airplane fires a Hellfire missile, maiming or dismembering unsuspecting, unarmed, often unidentified human beings. That technician, along with his or her chain of command, plays god, a god who takes no risk in taking those human lives.''

Somebody Else s Atrocities

Noam Chomsky, Truthout: ''In his penetrating study 'Ideal Illusions: How the U.S. Government Co-Opted Human Rights,' international affairs scholar James Peck observes, ''In the history of human rights, the worst atrocities are always committed by somebody else, never us', whoever 'us' is. Almost any moment in history yields innumerable illustrations. Let s keep to the past few weeks.''


America s 23-Year War

By Anthony Gregory

If nothing else, this war has been effective at one thing: it gives cover for the steady erosion of human rights. Indefinite detention and surveillance, is there reason to believe any of this will end so long as the U.S. is at war?

Messing With Our Minds: The Ever Finer Line Between News and Advertising

Kingsley Dennis, Truthout: ''The manufacturing of consent is endemic within modern societies. Throughout history, the need to 'persuade and influence' has always been manipulated by those people in power as a means to maintain authority and legitimacy. In more recent years, the overall manipulation of the mass public mind has become less about making speeches and more about becoming a pervasive presence within the lives of each individual.''

by Andrew P. Napolitano


What if Memorial Day reminds us of times when we had more freedom? What if freedom is dying right under our eyes? What if the memory of the past is more fulfilling than the reality of the present?

Memorial Day: Remembering the victims of government

Libertarian News Examiner
by Garry Reed


People who have lost loved ones fighting in America s wars should, by all means, honor them for their courage, but they should not honor them for 'fighting for our freedoms' because they didn t. They fought to secure the power lust, wealth accumulation, and ego fulfillment of America s ruling class. America s leaders know this perfectly well, but they don t want their victims, the young people who do the actual fighting and dying and their loved ones who mourn them, to recognize that reality...

Memorial Day Propaganda

by Gary Barnett


Every day since I was born, my liberty has continually been harmed. Every war has caused a massive reduction in freedom, and since September 11, 2001, almost all freedom has been destroyed. So the next time someone without good sense says that we should all thank the military forces for our freedom, ask them what freedom?

Memories of freedom

Tenth Amendment Center
by Andrew Napolitano


What if Memorial Day reminds us of times when we had more freedom? What if freedom is dying right under our eyes? What if the memory of the past is more fulfilling than the reality of the present? What if the federal government could write any law, regulate any behavior and tax any event, no matter what the Constitution authorized? What if the majority in Congress rejects the idea of limited government and views the Constitution as granting it blanket power to do whatever it can get away with?
