- The guy, a military man, said he was puzzled by my essays.
- He wrote: "John I just took the time to look some
of the material that you sent with your last e-mails. I must ask ... what
drives you? I'm not sure what to make of it. It seems that you hate government,
religion, politics, etc. There's more to life. Just asking?"
- In baseball, they call this a gopher ball. A pitch you
can knock right out of the park.
- I replied:
- "What do I want? I want the truth. I desire peace,
justice, and honesty throughout the world. I have no political philosophy
and back no religion. I DO hate government, religion and politics. I like
peace, justice, and honesty."
- And I hit the "send" button. Then I popped
out on the porch for a the evening's final cigarette and realized I could've
made that answer a lot longer.
- When's the last time you read about any of those things
in your local newspaper? I wonder when the last time the word "peace"
issued from the sewage lips of Fox News' Bill O'Reilly? Probably when he
was talking about torturing innocent Muslim civilians at the gulag called
Guantanamo, that's his kind of peace.
- And justice? How many stories on TV have you heard about
Ernst Zundel, who talks frequently about peace, justice, and honesty, but
for the past 14 months has been held in solitary confinement in a Canadian
jail without any charges ever being filed. He is not even allowed to see
the evidence against him. Yet he tells a very compelling story that everybody
should listen to. Shouldn't somebody be writing a story about justice for
- Or Dick Simkanin, jailed for making a point against the
government where the judge who convicted him couldn't even cite a statute
he had broken before he found him guilty. He's buried so deep in jail you
can't even find him on Google.
- Same with Charles Sell. The guy who did dental IDs on
the Waco victims and saw all those bulletholes. He served his sentence
on some trumped up charge, but they won't let him out. They keep drugging
him and saying he's crazy, a real tribute to the legacy of Janet Reno and
Wesley Clark in an ugly Texas town.
- Oh, this is a very long list. Suffice it to say American
justice is dead Iraqi family who didn't know what hit them. This is how
democracy arrived in the cradle of civilization.
- And honesty? I can sum it up in one phrase I read in
the newspapers: "They hate our freedoms."
- Corporations pay no taxes. You and me give them 50 percent
of what we earn.
- Honesty is to admit that America is the evil empire.
You hear people whispering that on the streets, but you don't see it in
the newspapers. People are afraid to say that, because if they do, they're
apt to disappear, just like those three, and oh so many more.
- And it's not just the government, as so many people overseas
say to try and let the American population off hook. But it's the people,
too. People who refuse to see that killing faraway people in order to get
lower prices is not the mark of a decent bunch of folks. We could stop
it at any time, but we don't. And it's not because we can't stop, but because
we just don't care.
- Just before I answered that fellow's letter, however,
I did chance across an exceptionally eloquent example of honesty, in a
forward from an e-mail friend I know only as G88POGEL. It was a detailed
explanation of political intrigues of the last two hundred years written
by Webster Tarpley, author of "George Bush:
- The Unauthorized Bioography," and delivered at a
Lyndon LaRouche conference.
- The truth is, Tarpley explained, that it has been Britain
which has been behind all the wars of the last two centuries, and is at
it still, only now the bankers from London are wholly intertwined with
the Zionists and the Americans.
- Ever consider that Britain and America were on the wrong
side in both World Wars, and that our current climate of endless wars and
everpresent fearmongering were the result of Britain's desire to rule the
world? Ever realize that Britain backed the Confederacy to destabilize
America during the Civil War? Check it out The Versailles Thesis at http://members.tripod.com/~american_almanac/versaill.htm
- Then maybe you can talk to me about peace, justice, and
honesty. It's shameful what Americans are doing to the world. Israelis
too. They both seem to have learned the repulsive habits of the British.
- Your parents didn't bring you up to be killers, I don't
think. Maybe they did and just won't admit it.
- It's so hard not to lapse into negativity with all this
phony stuff that is coming down around our ears today. But it has been
going on a long time.
- Because the centerpiece of society is money, and that's
the only viewpoint capitalist media will admit is valid, we cannot hope
for peace. It's excluded from the agenda, off the charts, out of the game.
You just never read about peace, except as in imminent threats to.
- Private control of the money supply, the thing that got
all those presidents gunned down, is the single central challenge jeopardizing
the future. Wars will never end as long the Federal Reserve and the Rothschild
banks of London continue to exist. This is where the revolution should
focus. Because nothing will be fixed as long as they remain intact.
- The only reason we have wars is because these private
bankers want war. It is the most profitable human endeavor.
- The 21st century needs to address the issue of profit,
because it has been proven to be a case of profit for the powerful few,
and total loss for the other 99 percent of the population.
- Without this focus, there can be no peace, no justice,
and no honesty.
- So that's why I keep complaining. I don't like seeing
innocent people dead for no reason, especially these lame excuses muttered
by empty-headed functionaries like Tom Ridge, who keeps insisting we're
going to have a terror attack before the fake elections in November. He
sounds so convincing because he's helping to plan it, that's what. More
and more people are realizing the deal is that the sickos in power have
created this terror apparatus all by themselves, and are using it to rob
the people of America and the world. It's a time honored tradition, perfected
by the British and honed by the Israelis.
- And now America is practicing the worst of both.
- All I want is peace, justice, and honesty. There are
no Arab terrorists about to blow up your neighborhood. There may be hired
mercenaries posing as Arab terrorists about to blow up your neighborhood,
however. And you know whom to thank for that.
- We need to be talking about peace, justice, and honesty.
What you think about, and what you talk about, is what happens.
- There are terrorists trying to hijack the world, but
they live in big white houses in Washington. And down at your local newspaper
