"Well, I really wish there were a way to defeat imperialism without the pain and bloodshed. Our generation tried to "shake the moral conscience of America" in the 60's. I think the clear lesson from Vietnam, from the bloody overthrow of Allende in Chile, from the COINTELPRO campaigns against the Black movement here and the criminal attacks on Nicaragua today is that you have to be able to fight and ultimately defeat imperialism's force and violence to achieve any real change."

- David Gilbert

Is This Heaven?

by Mike Palecek

Some people said they received thirty-nine copies of my last column.

That is enough to land me on the FBI "Most E-mails" List, and is a Class I felony in some counties of Connecticut.

I'm trying to use an address book to mail these out. Some people complained about having their address visible. I tried to hide those and for some reason I sent out thirty-nine copies.

Well, here goes again. I do mean to only send you one at at time.

I've got a few more I would like to send out.

I would imagine these flurries of emails will subside fairly soon.

I watched "The Weather Underground" last night after I got home from work about midnight.

I just can't help but be impressed by the commitment of those people. They actually fought the United States government. Nobody does that.

Can you imagine - just try to imagine - canceling your Survivor Party to fight the FBI toe-to-toe?

I cannot imagine postponing my stair-stepper workout to fight the United States government.

My wife and I once went "underground" in the 1980s for two weeks, pursued by the Omaha FBI office.
