War and Globalization

Dollar bill

Its one of those things I have been keeping an interest in, but not deeply. Then I watched Micheal Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11. I felt it was ok, but not enough. So i watched a couple of torrents called fear or love: 9/11 the great illusion and The truth and lies of 9/11. The first one was very good but highlighted alot of theories that I had heard on the net before. The last one was great and far better than all the others. So anyway I need to keep a better eye on the project for a new american century, the new world order and the grand chessboard.

So anyway tons of links which I hope to move to my bookmarks or (the wiki) in the future.

And something positive to leave the blog with. Taken from BoingBoing and Lawrence Lessig's blog. The video stream is available here too.

If there's a child on the south side of Chicago who can't read, that matters to me, even if it's not my child. If there's a senior citizen somewhere who can't pay for her prescription and has to choose between medicine and the rent, that makes my life poorer, even if it's not my grandmother. If there's an Arab American family being rounded up without benefit of an attorney or due process, that threatens my civil liberties. It's that fundamental belief-I am my brother's keeper, I am my sisters' keeper-that makes this country work. It's what allows us to pursue our individual dreams, yet still come together as a single American family. “E pluribus unum.” Out of many, one.

Yet even as we speak, there are those who are preparing to divide us, the spin masters and negative ad peddlers who embrace the politics of anything goes. Well, I say to them tonight, there's not a liberal America and a conservative America-there's the United States of America.

There's not a black America and white America and Latino America and Asian America; there's the United States of America. The pundits like to slice-and-dice our country into Red States and Blue States; Red States for Republicans, Blue States for Democrats. But I've got news for them, too. We worship an awesome God in the Blue States, and we don't like federal agents poking around our libraries in the Red States. We coach Little League in the Blue States and have gay friends in the Red States.

There are patriots who opposed the war in Iraq and patriots who supported it. We are one people, all of us pledging allegiance to the stars and stripes, all of us defending the United States of America.
