The Engineer: Financial Trainwreck Finds a Face

Public Enemy Number One
by Stephen Lendman
A note before beginning. This article focuses on today's financial and economic crisis. Not affairs of state, war and peace or geopolitics. No guessing who's number one under those headings. That said:

With so many good choices, it's hard just picking one. But given the gravity of today's financial crisis, one name stands out above others. The "maestro," as Bob Woodward called him in his book by that title. The "Temple of Boom" chairman, according to a New York Times book review. Standing "bestride the Fed like a colossus." Now defrocked as the "maestro" of misery. Alan Greenspan. From August 11, 1987 to January 31, 2006, as head of the private banking cartel euphemistically called the Federal Reserve. That Ron Paul explains isn't Federal and has no reserves.

The Cost of Slumber

The Cost of Slumber 
by Dahr Jamail
Less than a month from the American presidential election of 2008, the day after the so-called final debate, I sat writing some of this article in Oakland airport, awaiting a flight to Portland, as part of a team of journalists, authors, activists and military veterans from the occupation of Iraq.
The team is embarking on a countrywide tour to talk about the occupation of Iraq and the American Empire, in the hope that the American public might consider resisting both.

Victoria Citizens Model to the World?

The Activist Eco Front on Canada’s West Coast: Could it be that Victoria Citizens are a Model to the World?
by Diane Walsh
The demonstration event of October 25th 2008 in BC’s Capital is something of note.  So significant it’s worth the world seeing. The Victoria Chapter of the Western Canada Wilderness Committee (WCWC) managed to inspire more than 2,700 people to come out in support of Big Trees not Big Stumps, a rally call with a powerful message: Cutting Old Growth trees as an instituted logging practice is no longer tolerable.  Wow.  Quite a doozy.

In droves, ralliers flocked to the streets in Victoria.    In a courageous effort to underline the moral duty -- compel government to stop ravaging majestic beauties that are hundreds of years old -- the people walked, the people spoke.

Priorities in the Face of the Storm

American Priorities
by Mickey Z.
I was walking down the street when I noticed a man sitting behind the wheel of a car, cursing and angry. His face was a mask of rage. I stopped and contemplated the source of his fury and assumed it was the election. Clearly, this man was fed up with the two-party farce, the barring of non-corporate candidates from public debates, the lies, the corruption, and the fact that a vote for either McCain or Obama is a vote for the same gluttonous, murderous culture.

Then I got a little closer and realized the man was upset because someone had beaten him to a parking spot.

Island Enviro. Activist Lee to Tour Europe

Island Enviro. Activist Lee to Tour Europe
by Ingmar Lee
Hi All; I am headed back to Europe on November 12th for my second tour, to speak about logging in British Columbia. In 2003, I delivered 20 lectures at universities, schools and at a variety of environmental organizations across Germany, Denmark and Sweden.
I spoke to the issue of the voracious industrial logging destruction of Vancouver Island forests. In 2003 I focused primarily on efforts to protect one of the final intact watersheds in the remotest corner of the island at East Creek, at the foot of the north Brooks peninsula. Since then the East Creek watershed, has been destroyed by logging.

Only 12% of Vancouver Island is protected in parks, of which 6% is above the tree line, -rock and ice. Virtually everything wild outside those bounds has been exterminated; converted to a monotony of tree farms. In contrast to the relative indifference that Canadians seem to have for their forests, I've found that many Europeans, -Europe buys a lot of BC forest products-, care deeply about what goes on in these woods. Now I've been invited to return to Europe to give them an update.

Finance and Militarism

Democracy and Militarism
Howard Zinn: The financial and war crisis have created an opportunity for real change Pt5/5

In the final segment of our interview with Howard Zinn we explore the idea of the United States as a source of freedom and democracy in the world. Prof. Zinn outlines the long history in the US of linking military pursuits with the cause of freedom and democracy, a marriage which Prof. Zinn believes is still used due to inappropriate historical education.

Vancouver Island's Watersheds Need Protection from Private Owners

Watersheds Need Protection from Private Owners
by Richard Boyce
On a recent walk around Labour Day Lake, I was enchanted by the mycrological world that erupts with the return of the rains. I spent the entire day examining mushrooms with a wide range of colours: bright yellow, orange, red, dull purple, green, white, and every variation of brown. Some were so tiny they made the evergreen needles look big, while others were the size of soccer balls. They grew on rotting logs, amongst the evergreen needles, and high up on dying trees. Some looked extremely delicate and others hard shelled.

I particularly enjoy hiking at this time of year because of the profusion of life that comes out of death. Decaying wood and the thick layers of humus that have accumulated over the years, forming a rich forest floor, dotted with a diversity of mushrooms. I have only seen such an abundance of mushrooms in old growth forests where centuries of vegetable matter decaying into soil provides a lush environment for fungi.

Mushrooms that appear on a wide variety of surfaces in the forest are actually the fruiting bodies of fungi, which for the most part are hidden below the surface and can stretch out for great distances. They are an indication of a healthy and vibrant forest ecosystem. Water is purified through soil, which is stabilized by tree root systems, that live in a semiotic relationship with fungi.

How the Pentagon Could Help Bail Out America

The Trillion Dollar Tag Sale: How the Pentagon Could Help Bail Out America
by Nick Turse
Wars, bases, and money; the three are inextricably tied together.
In the 1980s, for example, American support for jihadis like Osama bin Laden waging war on (Soviet) infidels who invaded and constructed bases in Afghanistan, a Muslim land, led to rage by many of the same jihadis at the bases (U.S.) infidels built in the Muslim holy land of Saudi Arabia in the 1990s. That, in turn, led to jihadis like bin Laden declaring war on those infidels, which, after September 11, 2001, led the Bush administration to launch, and then prosecute, a Global War on Terror, often from newly built bases in Muslim lands.
Over the last seven years, the results of that war have been particularly disastrous for Iraqis and Afghans. Sizable numbers of Americans, however, are now beginning to suffer as well. After all, their hard-earned taxpayer dollars have been poured into wars without end, leaving the country deeply in debt and in a state of economic turmoil.
