our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the
authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual
forces of evil in the heavenly realms."
"The aim- understood
by presidents, overlooked by many voters- is eternal mastery and control,
which, naturally has a high price.
Bacevich's (*1) cool, balanced analysis
is compelling, and recalls chilling words penned by James Madison in 1795:
'Of all the dreaded enemies of public liberty, war is perhaps the most to be
dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other. war is
the parent of armies. From these proceed debt and taxes. And armies, debts,
and taxes are the known instruments for bringing the many under the
domination of the few.'"

Human Rights Violations in the
Theory Versus Practice (Excerpts)
February 25, 2002
Of all the nations in the world
the United States is perhaps the most vocal against human rights
violations. Yet this nation has increasingly become a great violator of
human rights in recent decades. Most Americans are not aware of this
because they keep busy with plenty of work just to make ends meet.
Besides they are unable to know what is going on since all the major
news media is controlled by big industries headed by the weapons
industrial complex. It is not in the interest of big industries to
expose their methods of people's exploitation and the great suffering
they inflict in the world at large.
Dark side Exposed As a
capitalistic institution, the United States is not a democratic society.
It is a plutocratic* nation governed by the rich for the
rich. Although theoretically the government is the ultimate
authority of a nation, in practice the ultimate power lies entirely in
the hands of big industry headed by the weapons complex. This
industry is primarily concerned with the sales of its lethal
products to anyone who would give the right price, friends and enemies
alike, as witnessed in the Iran/Contra affair.
When a nation becomes powerful that does not mean
that such a nation can do what it likes. Everything must be done with
deep respect in accordance with laws of higher order. I am referring
here to the divine positive law, the natural law, and the ecclesiastical
divine positive law consists of the Ten Commandments we find in the Bible,
which are found in virtually every religion conceivable.
The natural law deals with the law of nature, while the ecclesiastical law
deals with rules and regulations enacted by religious authorities.
