Cultural Crossroads: Jefferson Would Have Stood With Cindy Sheehan

Nationally, it was clearly a phenomenon when several truckers called into a radio show on Sirius Satellite to say that they were interrupting trips through central parts of the USA to head to Crawford, Texas.

Cultural Crossroads: Carter Tried To Stop Bush's Energy Disasters 28 Years Ago

In his recent news conference, George Bush Jr. suggested that our nation's "problem" with high gasoline prices was caused by the lack of a national energy policy, and tried to blame it all on Bill Clinton.

What Is A Conservative?

Definitions in Webster's dictionary include "tending to preserve old institutions, methods, customs, and the like;" and "modest, prudent, safe.

Musings: Home Around the World

A dear friend of mine insists that our world would be a much better place today if people had stayed in their own lands throughout history and did not migrate or explore.

Cultural Crossroads: The Young People Voting Block

Democrats and progressives make the mistake of thinking that today's Social Security debate is about Social Security. It's not. It's about creating single party rule for a generation or more.

Hyping Terror For Fun, Profit And Power

What if there really was no need for much - or even most - of the Cold War? What if, in fact, the Cold War had been kept alive for two decades based on phony WMD threats?

Null and Void

The announcement that the California Supreme Court would rule within the month on the legality of San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom’s initiative granting of marriage licenses to same-sex couples had been made weeks earlier.

Scalia To Synagogue: Jews Are Safer With Christians In Charge

Antonin Scalia, the man most likely to be our next Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, turned history on its head recently when he attended an Orthodox synagogue in New York and claimed that the Founders intended for their Christianity to play a part in government.

A Simple Plan to Save the World

Ending extreme poverty, disease, environmental degradation, war? We asked one of the world's most influential economists--adviser to Kofi Annan and Bono alike--what would have to be done to put the world on a course to do exactly that. What follows is his modest little plan.

The Choice This Year Is Between Empire and Democracy

Having lived in Germany and extensively interviewed many former, now elderly, members of Hitler's Nazi Party (and one spy for him) for a book I was writing on the religion of the Nazis, I can say categorically that Hitler had (or at least his people believed he had) a Vision.

Time To Reconsider Jefferson's Call For Universal Service

Many of the world’s mature democracies require every high school graduate to serve a year or two of either military or nonprofit service.

Cultural Crossroads: Jefferson Predicted Iraq

Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon thought they could bomb Vietnam into accepting democracy. George W. Bush thinks he can do it with Iraq. Thomas Jefferson had some very different thoughts on the issue.

Gay Marriage: What's In A Word

What's in a word? Plenty, if the word is “marriage.”

Cultural Crossroads: Gay Marriage? It All Began with Jefferson

"Gay Marriage is simply the logical and appropriate extension of the idea that in a constitutionally limited democratic republic a vital function of government is to protect the rights of minorities. It's called 'civil rights.'"

Musings: Healthy Parenting

Having raised a daughter almost into her third decade, I now have the luxury of looking back to savor all the hard work done.

Cultural Crossroads: Rush Limbaugh May Teach Conservatives A Lesson

The reaction to the drug problem -- and drug felonies -- recently alleged against Rush Limbaugh highlight sharply the differences between conservative morality and liberal/progressive morality.

Cultural Crossroads: The Genetically Modified Bomb

Imagine a bomb that only kills Caucasians with red hair. Or short people. Or Arabs. Or Chinese.

Musings: "Bombing Iraq Is So Last Century!"

A year ago when the theme “Beginning Anew” was chosen for this issue, I wondered if we might possibly be living in a radically transformed world at this time -- for better or for worse.

Cultural Crossroads: Your Vote is the Property of a Private Corporation

Santa Clara County, of all jurisdictions in America, should have known better. They could have started by looking at Florida.

The New America

As surely as renewed resentment and violence is brewing worldwide in response to the United States’ attack on Iraq, a New America is also being born out of the ashes of these recent world events.

Rep. Dennis J. Kucinich: America, Come Home

Dennis J. Kucinich, US Congressman and presidential candidate, leads the Congressional opposition to the war in Iraq. He delivered this speech to the US National Newspaper Association, March 21, 2003.

Tim Robbins: A Chill Wind Is Blowing In This Nation...

The following is a transcript of the speech given by actor Tim Robbins to the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. on April 15, 2003.

Scott Ritter: Active Citizenship

Scott Ritter, a former UN Chief Weapons Inspector in Iraq from 1991 to 1998 is much in the news. Although a Republican he is also a vociferous critic of the Bush administration. Invited to the Netherlands by the Dutch Socialist Party, he gave a series of lectures and interviews

Cultural Crossroads: The American Empire Needs New Clothes

It's easy to vilify George W. Bush as a cynical warmonger, anxious to attack Iraq to repay the oil companies that funded his election campaigns.

Musings: Education Outside The Box

My daughter, Michella, is graduating from high school and stepping out into the adult world. Her first cultural milestone -- oh, but what a precipice for her mother!

An hour ago, I was standing deep in a Franconian forest of central Germany, gazing in amazement at the time-hidden ruins of an ancient castle
