A National Call: Save Civilian Public Education - by The National Network Opposing the Militarization of Youth
Over the last several decades, the Pentagon, conservative forces, and corporations have been systematically working to expand their presence in the K-12 learning environment and in public universities.

The media's term "hazing" is misapplied while ignoring the sexual nature of the crimes included forced sodomy. The cultural cover-up by football fanatics reeks of fascism on the local level while the media's downplay of words indicates nationalist fascism of football's Holy Grail.

The Inheritance of Inequality and Rethinking Growth - by Martin Schuertz, K Burmeister and S Stache
The economy exists for people, not vice versa. Economics should be pluralistic, not a monolith. The economy should be embedded in society; society should not embedded in the economy.
