Born in Phila, I spent most of my adolescent and adult years in Europe, resulting over time in several unique books, my latest being Cuba, Diary of A Revolution

CUBA: Diary of a Revolution, Inside the Cuban Revolution with Fidel, Raul, Che, and Celia Sanchez

Lunch with Fellini, Dinner with Fidel: An Illustrated Personal Journey from the Cold War to the Arab Spring

America Revealed to a Honey-Colored World

A Taoist Politics: The Case For Sacredness

I began my journalistic career at the French News Agency in Rome, spent two years in Cuba finding out whether the Barbados were Communists before they made the revolution ('Cuba 1964: When the Revolution was Young'). After spending half a decade in Eastern Europe, and a decade in the U.S., studying Global Survival and writing speeches in the Carter State Department, I wrote the only book that foresaw the fall of the Berlin Wall AND the dissolution of the Soviet Union ("Une autre Europe, un autre Monde'). My memoir, 'Lunch with Fellini, Dinner with Fidel', tells it all. 'A Taoist Politics: The Case for Sacredness', which examines the similarities between ancient wisdom and modern science and what this implies for political activism; and 'America Revealed to a Honey-Colored World" is a pamphlet about how the U.S. came down from the City on a Hill'.

What all the Hullaballoo is About Calls to impeach the new president will grow louder as various pundits make their case, filling the coffers of mainstream publishers. But it would be surprising if they led anywhere, as I show in three examples of the new normal. Hopefully, fascism 2017 is less about making war than about making money.

Anti-Russian Feeding Frenzy instead of New World Information Order Fifty years ago there was an opportunity for the world -- though divided between East and West -- to agree on new principles concerning the production and dissemination of news and information more broadly. Guess why the initiative by the third world went nowhere?

But most of the world's people are painfully aware that the shoe is on the other foot.

Wait a Minute! Is Early Voting Part of Campaigning? IS there some hanky-panky going on right before our eyes as early voting is folded into campaign rhetoric? Trump warns about rigged elections, yet he is silence about this new practice which could well swing the election one way or the other, as part of campaigning.
