As the Republic is delivered into the hands of the plutocrats, Abe surveys the wreckage.

 We truly have passed through the looking glass.

Bush, congressional Republicans have seen fit to hold hostage the creditworthiness of the United States.

Michael Parenti on "Superpatriotism," a classic talk

Michael Parenti on "Superpatriotism"

Samuel Johnson in the 18th century said, "Patriotism is the last refuge of scoundrels." Maybe it is, maybe it isn't. But for certain today, patriotism is a battleground. Being labeled unpatriotic or anti-American have become routine terms of abuse. Somehow the state has been invested with some extraordinary power and people are to be silent and obey in respectful awe. As Martin Luther King, Jr said in his great Riverside Church speech in 1967, "Even when pressed by the demands of inner truth, citizens do not easily assume the task of opposing their government's policy, especially in a time of war." Perhaps true patriotism would be to raise uncomfortable questions that challenge the official story.
