I enjoyed the veritable Renaissance of unhindered web activism and organization, and watched as the alternative media proved its mettle during the run-up to the invasion of Iraq, while too much of the mainstream media was busy self-destructing in service to the US State Department.
I was active and vocal in the so-called 'antiglobalization' movement, and watched in horror two years ago as everything we were trying to warn the public about exploded in all our faces. I had hoped this would lead to better, more critical analyses of the institutions and people involved, as well as the schemes that created this mess, but sadly, the bulk of the media continues to champion these policies of ruin, and bankrupt 'logic' of global capital, and view those opposed to it with hostility.
I became a critic of the Israeli Government after I made an off-handed comment about a specific Israeli policy in one of my articles, and was similarly attacked as an "antisemite" by supporters of the Israeli Government and its deliberate perpetuation of the military, political, and economic campaign to deny the Palestinians their rights and annex their land and resources.
This led me to become more informed about the conflict, which naturally led me to become vocal in exposing the truth about the senseless conflict, and trying to find a way to end it.
