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.

Cultural Crossroads: Clarence Thomas and Our Right To Privacy

In 1789, Thomas Jefferson wrote a note to James Madison about the future possibility of a president who didn’t understand the principles on which America was founded.

Former Vice President Al Gore: Remarks To MoveOn.org

To all Americans who love America...who believe our country has gone astray in becoming something other than the land of freedom, justice and equality for all...

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!

Cultural Crossroads: Why Germans Oppose War in Iraq

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

Cultural Crossroads: Goldwater’s Ghost

Computers in the electoral process started in 1964, the year Goldwater opposed Johnson for the presidency.

Not In My Name

Before I start this poem, I’d like to ask you to join me in a moment of silence in honor of those who died in the World Trade Center and the Pentagon last September 11th.

From Abraham To Muhammad

For the last half century, children the world over have had to learn that their elders possess biological, chemical and nuclear weapons which could conceivably destroy all life on Earth.

Something To Say

As a veteran, we deal with these issues of war and peace all the time. Who suffers from war? What are the real and hidden costs of war?

Challenging The Corporate Theft Of Human Rights

"There can be no effective control of corporations whiletheir political activity remains."President Theodore Roosevelt, August 31, 1910

Musings: Where Have All the Hippies Gone?

I coulda' woulda' shoulda' been a hippie, but I was born too late...or maybe it was right on time, depending upon how you look at it.

Kucinich Envisions A Department Of Peace

If you believe that humanity has a higher destiny; if you believe we can evolve, and become better than we are; if you believe we can overcome the scourge of war and someday fulfill the dream of harmony and peace on Earth, let us begin the conversation today. Let us exchange our ideas.

High Ideals: The Story Of Industrial Hemp

In February of 1938, Popular Mechanics ran an article about industrial hemp entitled "The New Billion Dollar Crop." This article spoke of a new machine called a decorticator that separated the woody "hurds" from the fiber, thus making the fiber readily available for use without prohibitive amounts of human labor.

September 11: It's the US Foreign Policy

America is not the target of terrorism because Islamic fundamentalists hate American democratic ideals of freedom, liberty and "all that we stand for," as George Bush has claimed. Only if it were so. The problem may be much bigger.

Musings: Sharing

Lately, the keyword for me has been "share." Funny how that book title from several years ago really does ring true...
