I wrote an article last night, one of the best (IMHO) I’ve ever written. At 3AM my computer automatically went searching for updates, found a few, and proceeded to shut down automatically. Of course, when the computer shut down, it took my three page article and flushed it down the cyber sewer. Needless to say, I was outraged and came very close to putting my foot into the thing, but the rational part of me stepped in and saved the day. I’m going to try to write this article over again, but my expectations are very low.
When I was a young boy… I wanted to be The President of the United States. From time to time, I still wish I was the President, but now…not so much. There are just too many problems to contend with and not enough people that have the answers, or even a clue as to how to solve them. Continue reading

“(Propaganda) proceeds by psychological manipulations, character modifications, by creation of stereotypes useful when the time comes – The two great routes that this sub-propaganda takes are the conditioned reflex and the myth.”

I can’t tell this story enough—and it fits into this piece:
On July 4th 2006, I, and dozens of other antiwar activists began what we called: “Troops Home Fast.” It was supposed to be a fast until the troops were coming home from Iraq (Note: After 39 days, I ended up in the hospital with another condition and I had to have two emergency surgeries and 2 blood transfusions, so I had to stop). So a few days after the fast began, I was invited to go on MSNBCs Hardball, and I was told I was invited so I could talk about our fast.

Leon Trotsky’s life spanned the inspiring highs and tragic lows of the international socialist movement in the 20th century–a leader of the 1917 Russian Revolution that gave us our first and best glimpse of a workers’ state, and the victim of the Stalinist counter-revolution, assassinated 70 years ago in August. Shaun Harkin pays tribute to Trotsky and his immense contributions to the revolutionary tradition.
For 43 years of my conscious life, I have remained a revolutionist; for 42 of them, I have fought under the banner of Marxism. If I had to begin all over again, I would, of course, try to avoid this or that mistake, but the main course of my life would remain unchanged. I shall die a proletarian revolutionist, a Marxist, a dialectical materialist and, consequently, an irreconcilable atheist. My faith in the communist future of mankind is not less ardent; indeed, it is firmer today than it was in the days of my youth.
