The Drums of War: Iran Edition

We Americans are not the best at history. Because of the spin of corporate-controlled media, we are not reminded of the consistent pattern of deception exhibited by our government when the ‘power behind the wheel’ wants a new conflict. Nor are we reminded of the tremendous profitability of war for the corporations who count on…

Summit on CoreChange in Cincinnati

Something powerful, something new under the sun happened in Cincinnati this weekend. A three day summit on changing Cincinnati in fundamental ways, an effort to rethink our city with an eye toward creating a just, community-oriented, sustainable city.

This conference was the brain child of Doctor Victor Garcia, a physician whose experience with young people from urban neighborhoods who were shot gave him a close-up view of the problem. One day he found himself with a heart-broken…

Occupy: New Wine and Old Skins

There is a famous biblical parable where Jesus speaks of his new way of thinking as something that cannot be contained in the existing Jewish culture. The idea is that if you put new wine into a used skin, the skin will burst as the new wine ferments, having already been stretched once from its first use.

"Happy Birthday Occupy Wall Street ... thoughts on Year One"

Fifteen years ago, I ran across a book, "100 Most Influential People in History," during one of my dalliances to my local Marin County bookstore. "Influential People" was one man's assessment on exactly that. But how he determined his rankings was the interesting part. They weren't always the reasons you would think. But after thinking about it, they made complete sense. For example:George Washington was ranked in the top 40 of all time. Understandable. But the reason why ... not so much. You…See More
