Myth Nine: The Environment, Who Needs it?

Myth Ten: 19 Muslims with box cutters were responsible for 9/11

Summary: The Case for (peaceful) Revolution.

There Ain't no Power like the Power of the People!

In this exciting Internet Booklet, Cindy, with her characteristic open honesty not only exposes the myths of the Robber Class, but gives us tangible and doable solutions and alternatives to buying in to the Robber Class myths!

Myth America will be available a week from today!

As I write this report, I am instant messaging with our OEN correspondent in Peshawar, Muhammad Khurshid, who's been within blocks of two recent terrorists attacks and whose family lives in the Bajaur region of Pakistan, near the Afghan border, where the Taliban has taken over much of the territory. The Pak army is on its way there to clean up the Taliban and that will put his family at risk. Khurshid is in Peshawar, where the jobs are available and he opines to me how he wants to be doing more activism work. I reply, "Talking with Cindy Sheehan last night, we talked about how difficult it is to pay the bills when being an activist. It is not a comfortable or easy life."

In Campbell's characterization of the archetypal heroic journey, the hero's goal is to find the "magic elixir" which will cure the ills in the world the hero departed from when she began  her heroic journey. Then, the hero must bring that elixir home.

While there's no question Cindy is a hero on a heroic journey, she has had her share of travails, her share of encounters with antagonists from the right and left. The challenge of the hero is to be true to one's self and one's beliefs, to fully evolve, once  having crossed the threshold, to a new, higher level of being and then to bring that greater awareness and power home, sharing it with the community. Cindy has chosen to bravely explore the domain of her beliefs, not simply embracing any party's  or ideology's line. Her book maps  out some new territory with a vision which, if it comes to pass, will indeed make this world a much better place.
