PERPETUAL WAR & PATRIOTIC FEAR


Dr. Parenti's most recent book, "The Assassination of Julius Caesar - A People's History of Ancient Rome" was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize

First Unitarian Church, 160 N. 3rd St., San Jose

"The siege psychology fostered by perpetual war makes dissent all that much more "unpatriotic." Under newly enacted repressive legislation almost any critical effort against existing policy can be defined as "giving aid and comfort to terrorism." Contrary to the established myth that capitalism fosters democracy, the moneyed class has always opposed the broadening of popular rights and has always shown itself hostile to any kind of democratic activism and militancy."
