The Right to Bear Arms? (even in a well regulated militia?) A viral video depicts the truly awesome killing power of the Glock 18 fully automatic pistol. It also shows how difficult it is to control, and it's easy to imagine horrific "accidents" happening.

Old, Wise, and Mad as Hell: Harry's Last Stand Harry Leslie Smith is old (91), wise, and very angry. He writes powerfully and well and what he has to say about the economic and political state of the US and Britain. Harry's generation of working class Brits grew up in poverty made desperate by the depression. He sees strong parallels between what is happening in the US and GB today, and the poverty of his youth.

Review: Open Source Everything Manifesto What could or world happen if virtually everything, all intellectual property, all the stuff that's now secret or locked away in proprietary silos were universally available. In this book Robert Steel tells us that many of the challenges society faces in governance, environment, health, and virtually all areas of concern could find resolution. Were it not for Steele's rigor citing sources this might seem like Sci-fi. Not so.

Feeding a Hungry Planet Our food supply is in jeopardy. The next 36 years will bring global catastrophe unless we can succeed in changing the way we use the limited capacity of Earth to grow food for people. Agriculture, as now practiced, is not sustainable, nor is it sufficiently efficient to meet the needs of 9 - 10 million people (the global population in 2050.

Tribulations of Trolls and Goats In children's stories a troll is a fearful, loathsome, and darkly dangerous creature that lurks in the shadows and eats hapless kids who come within reach as they go about their business. In the blog-o-sphere of the adult world a troll is a darkly dangerous writer who lurks in discussion threads. Most commonly they are believers in an extreme point of view doing battle for their cause.

How can I trust? The betrayal of trust is the stuff of national headlines, the grist of theater drama, and the bane of our personal relationships. As I write this, Edward Snowden has been in the news for a year having revealed that the National Security Agency has been doing Orwellian surveillance of domestic communications in the US. Both Snowden and our government leadership have breached our trust. This essay examines authentic trust.

Common Bound Conference - Boston Organizers of the Common Bound Conference in Boston expected 300 people and we almost overwhelmed when 650 people representing 110 organizations registered, maxing out the accommodations (our publisher Rob Kall was among those who couldn't find a room.) The theme is "Moving Together Toward a New Economy." The core concept? Our economy is more than just money. It's about stewardship and sustainability.

"Death Spiral" States - Whispernet Viral Propaganda Viral emails are being used by politicians and activists to influence public opinion and solidify base groups. It's an ideal propaganda technique because it usually comes from someone known to the recipient, and is therefore read as credible. Even when received by an unsympathetic reader, it may sow seeds of doubt. Because it's anonymous and not in public media there is no rebutting it or holding the source accountable.

O'Reilly -- On Obama and the Race Problem The conservative whisper-net is circulating a video clip of Bill O'Reilly delivering an impassioned opinion piece that articulates a demonstrably wrong analysis of "President Obama and the Race Problem." He's wrong in too many ways to enumerate, but his rant is a good motivator to read Tim Weiss' book that details why.

Gaming the System In "Gaming the System" Shreve asserts that the US and much of the developed world has forgotten the importance of the old fashion value of stewardship - the nurturing of that which sustains us. The 2007 recession, the environmental crisis, the growing gap between the wealthy and the poor of the world are all manifestations of a lack of stewardship. Our survival may depend upon embracing stewardship as our primary social value.

Comcast is Nudging Consumers Toward Higher Cost Services Unless the FCC get some spine and takes control, net neutrality is dead. "[The FCC] should decide to classify broadband as a telecommunications service, which would allow it to prohibit companies like Verizon and Comcast from engaging in unjust or unreasonable discrimination. (The F.C.C. classified broadband as a lightly regulated information service during the George W. Bush administration.)," -- the NY Times.

The US is Broke -- Not! Fears that the US is going broke abound and are unfounded. But there is a whisper campaign afoot to amplify them for political gain. This cynical belief is convenient and useful to the GOP in their bid for power in November. One element of the fear campaign is a video reportedly produced by a retired IBM accountant that shows [old news] that US tax revenue is insufficient to operate the government after entitlements are paid.

How's That Workin' for Ya? Author Shreve asserts that we are story animals and that political communications play upon and manipulate that trait. To assume that logical, rational arguments will counter propaganda is a false hope. The answer may lie in examining the story that drives the major parties and decide how and if it works for you personally.

GOP Apologists' Viral Email Campaign Chain Emails are a useful tool for propaganda because they foreclose the prospect of rebuttal, are forwarded by a trusted source, and probably won't be scrutinized very carefully. The audience wants to believe the message, and voices of dissent won't challenge. Here is and example of such a propaganda piece designed to bolster the GOP rank and file.

But when of one of its authors, Cass Sunstein, became part of the Obama administration, the appointment alarmed conspiracists because his paper advocates "cognitive infiltration of extremist groups."
