The Ecology of Impeachment It's not enough for George W. Bush to leave office. We must also get rid of all the illegal stratagems he used to subvert the Constitution, from signing statements to the concept of the unitary executive. Only impeachment(s) can help us do that.

Restore Fairness, Return to Reality While I'm happy Don Imus has been fired, it won't change much about our hate-filled media. But it would make me ecstatic to see a groundswell of activism to restore the fairness doctrine and return to some semblance of reality-based reporting.

Who Is the Enemy? Alberto Gonzales has declared that after September 11, 2001, the United States became a theater of war. The fact that this is a rightwing dream come true is merely coincidental--in the same way that the Culture War is merely a metaphor.

One Nation Under Psy-Ops Where I live, on Long Island, we are constantly bombarded with the message, "If you see something, say something." Well, I do see something suspicious, and I want to report it.

Greenwave The Democrats have deserted their New Deal roots. They distract us from our real problems and manufacture consent for dictatorship. Time for a new paradigm. Time to go Green.

Scandalology 101 There is nothing more stultifying than one-party rule. It's a simple rule of perception that unchanging sameness--they always win, no matter what--dulls the senses. So maybe we should take a break from the puppet show and look at the players behind the scenes, specifically the keepers of public scandal: the corporate media.

Happy Holidays The old joke says the religious right is neither, but fundamentalists are right on one essential point: we as a culture have a spiritual problem that demands a spiritual solution.

Revolution The revolution is happening here, now. Unfortunately, itÂ’s coming from the right, not the left. While we've been eagerly anticipating Fitzmas and stockings stuffed with indictments, the right has risen up and demanded a red-meat Supreme Court nominee.

Capitalism for Dummies Benito Mussolini said, "Fascism should more properly be called corporatism because it is the merger of state and corporate power." If that's true--and Mussolini ought to know--then globalization is nothing less than fascism on a planetary scale.

The Enemy Within In 1973, court documents show, GM used cost-benefit analysis to decide not to correct a deadly defect in one of its cars. In 2001 and 2005, the Bush administration employed the same "unimpeachable logic."
