The most dangerous man in America

"Non-cooperation with evil is as much a duty

as is cooperation with good." - Ghandhi

The three videos below detail how and why Daniel Ellsburg released the Pentagon Papers in 1971. The similarity of the cover-up behind the Viet Nam invasion to the invasion of Afghanistan today is shocking and humbling, and could not be more pertinent to the situation citizens find themselves in today vis-a-vis media manipulation by the government.

There was still a semblance of separation of powers in American government in the 1960's: something that is gone today. When will American citizens refuse to fund the illegal war in Afghanistan? Perhaps we must look to the past to find the future.

Bradley Manning is the conscience of the American people today: no doubt he will pay a heavy price for this burden.

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil
is that good men do nothing. - Edmund Burke

INTERVIEW WITH DANIEL ELLSBERG/REAL NEWS (18 min) - Absolutely excellent! Ellsberg's comments were made before the dismissal of McCrystal and read like a prophecy come true.

All blogs are really just small snapshots of a person's mind, heart and soul as they evolve together through life....

Small bits of the thread of life we weave together into the fabric of ourselves, in the hope we will make sense of our existence, individual and collective.

On this page, is the cloak I have fashioned from my fabric to warm myself in a universe which often makes little sense.

Inside my cloak, it is warm enough to face the blistering cold winds of the insane world in which I find myself.

If you find some a bit of 'the good stuff' here, it has been my pleasure.
