Averting the China Syndrome We do not advocate violence as a tactic so much as we argue that there are strong justifications for the use of violence, such as in a "just war," to intervene on behalf of genocide victims, or in self-defense. And we advance the concept of "extensional self-defense" to say that humans can be legitimate proxy agents for animals who rarely can defend themselves against their tormentors.

Pacifism or Animals: Which Do You Love More? We are not advocating the use of physical violence as a first strike measure or pivotal tactic for animal liberation, but nor are we taking it off the table as something that has to be dogmatically excluded on fundamentalist pacifist principles alone. We prefer not to disarm this struggle against monumental evil and destruction of life in any way.

Presence of Malice: UK Activists v. Lee Hall Due to these sundry laws and numerous injunctions, aboveground activists found that they were told where they could protest, for how long, with how many people, and what they could and could not say. Home demonstrations were prohibited, and the state placed increasingly severe restrictions on activist use of Internet sites, as those arrested for the crime of MDA have received hefty jail sentences.

Milton Lost: Can We Regain Paradise? [I dedicate this essay to the untold millions who suffered as a result of Milton Friedman's creation of an intellectual bulwark for economic brutality. On 11/16/06, Friedman died of heart failure, an ironic cause of death for a heartless individual.]

Man Fuel: Is it in you? What could better reflect the collective psychosis of the American Empire than our mass obsession with the NFL? Born through violent revolution, expanded by genocide, enriched by slavery, and elevated to hegemony through imperialism, militarism, and economic tyranny, the United States, like NFL football, embodies avaricious savagery masked by a fastidiously maintained illusion of benevolent civility.

Murdering God: Of Shotguns, American Capitalism, and Moral Expediency Collectively speaking, we US Americans savagely shoved a 12 gauge into the face of God as He stood, mouth agape, stunned at the depth of the depravity and barbarism of our capitalistic ways. We then unceremoniously splattered His brains across the sky that once served as His canvas at sunrise and sunset.

America Needs A New Father Image-- Tom Instead of George We’ve strayed woefully far from the "Promise of America." It’s not too late to fulfill that promise. George Washington is the father of a country ruled by the wealthy elite. It is time that "We the People" adopt the spirit of Thomas Paine as a new father of a nation ruled by all Americans, that we wrest the power away from the narcissistic, avaricious malefactors who are the enemies of humanity.
