My letter to Larry Flynt on Trump Impeachment Larry Flynt, Your grounds for impeachment #s 2 through 6 (plus that of the paragraph that follows them) are already documented by overwhelming, incontrovertible evidence. What is required is to recognize that and to remove from the list the impediment of the ground you have placed as #1 which helps create the illusion of requiring more information.

The Secure, the Dispossessed, and the Mentally Deranged Dotards In The Secure and the Dispossessed, Nick Buxton and Ben Hayes have collected an unflinching survey of a species gone mad. The book's subtitle is "How the Military and Corporations Are Shaping a Climate-Changed World." In short, the Authoritarian Exceptionalist Military Corporate Complex is flamboyantly recognizing the hole it is in, and exponentially increasing the rate of digging, while hiring PR firms to redefine "digging."

What About Weinstein's Public Offenses? Harvey Weinstein, I've just read, is "the disgraced Pulp Fiction producer." But isn't someone who encourages millions of people to think of murder and torture as super cool and fun already pre-disgraced? Doesn't he arrive in the locked office with the actress cowering in the corner already publicly disgraced and intent on disgracing himself in private?

Slim Pickings for Charlottesville City Council Thus far I'm underwhelmed by the candidates seeking to join Charlottesville's City Council this year, as well as, of course, by the current members. In the wake of the fascist rallies, the electoral system does not seem to be responding particularly well.

People Don't Kill People, Americans Kill People Yes, of course, every day that Congress goes on refusing to ban guns is more blood on the steps of the U.S. Capitol. It's immoral, disgraceful, embarrassing, and in large part a function of financial corruption. But it's also in part a government operating within a culture of violence -- albeit one that the same government plays a huge role in creating.

What's North Korea Afraid of? "Peace" clubs in U.S. schools are likely to teach that a local bully is afraid and in need of help. They are much less likely to teach that about entities involved in the actual subject of peace (meaning the absence of war), such as -- to take the example momentarily most prominent in U.S. propaganda -- North Korea.

Armistice Day 99 Years On and the Need for a Peace to End All Wars November 11 is Armistice Day / Remembrance Day. Ninety-nine years ago, on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, fighting ceased in the "war to end all wars." People went on killing and dying right up until the pre-designated moment, impacting nothing other than our understanding of the stupidity of war.

Take a Knee for Freedom of Religion In the United States, what puts you at the greatest risk of unpleasant repercussions is not the practicing of any particular religion, with the possible exception of Islam or anything that people might mistake for Islam. What the most factors conspire to compel you to in the United States is this: flag worship.

The Best Speech Yet From Any U.S. President In planning an upcoming conference aimed at challenging the institution of war, to be held at American University September 22-24, I can't help but be drawn to the speech a U.S. president gave at American University a little more than 50 years ago. Whether or not you agree with me that this is the best speech ever given by a U.S. president, there should be little dispute that it is the speech most out of step with what anyone

Pull Down That Statue of the U.S. Constitution The U.S. Constitution, along with the Declaration of Independence, has a whole marble building dedicated to its worship: the National Archives in D.C., plus the Constitution Center in Philadelphia. It's generally taught in U.S. schools as something in the past, not something to be improved upon -- hardly even to be questioned.

What It Would Take to End Racism and War I drove up here from where I live in Charlottesville, a town lately overrun by Nazis and other racists from around the country come to defend a giant heroic statue of Robert E. Lee on a horse that stands in the middle of town, as well as a similar one nearby of Stonewall Jackson. Those statues are now covered with giant black tarps but remain standing. Raise your hand if you know why they remain standing.

How Outlawing War Changed the World in 1928 I have learned a great deal from this phenomenal book, easily the best book I've read in years. I could write an essay about each of its over 400 pages. While I agree with a great deal of it and strongly disagree with certain parts, the two are easily separable. The brilliant sections are no less valuable because of those sections that fall short.

The Gathering to Abolish War Sixteen years of endless wars, endless spending, endless killing, endless dying, endless environmental destruction, endless erosion of our rights, endless suppression of activism, endless militarization of police, endless promotion of bigotry and hatred, endless generation of hatred and terrorism, endless threats of nuclear apocalypse. Can we make it end now?

Charlottesville's Past That Isn't Even Here in Charlottesville, Virginia, I like to point out that the rallies of racists are mostly imported from out of state. It's tempting to relax comfortably on that assertion, and to reflect on how our great lord and master Thomas Jefferson owned people with more reluctance and inner turmoil than Barack Obama bombing a foreign country or Donald Trump mouthing kind or coherent phrases from a teleprompter.

You Cannot Begin a Crime in Good Faith When Ken Burns begins a documentary on the American war on Vietnam by calling it a war begun in good faith we should be able to recognize a lie and an impossibility. We don't imagine rapes begun in good faith, slavery begun in good faith, child abuse begun in good faith. If someone tells you a war was begun in good faith, make a good faith effort to destroy your television.

Trump has, as promised, made me so sick of winning that I really could enjoy watching a defeat film, but I think I'll pass.
