Follow-up to my suggestion for a talk between Paul Roberts and Noam Chomsky.

created in my imagination
on the suggestion of Paul Craig Roberts
consisting of himself and Noam Chomsky
and a number of other illustrious
naysayers to the mad march to global self-destruction
who agree to agree on so much more
than they disagree on, and write a letter
once a week to POTUS, telling him
how to save the world, signed by every one
of them and giving millions of supporters
and dozens of progressive websites
a straw to clutch, a straw man for the mainstream but
at least a way to say that we, and not just I
told you so. And who knows, maybe
it will be the hundreth straw to break
the monkey on our backs, and start the music.
