How can Democracy be bad for you?

An explanation

The term "Democracy" is often used as an ideal which promises to bring peace, prosperity and happiness to all. Observe the way Clinton and Blair repeat the word as if it's a magical phrase which dispels critics and rallies support. I defined democracy and here I shall discuss some issues that surround it.


The Biowarriors

Richard Sanders, November 7, 2001

On dozens of separate occasions since the Second World War, biological weapons have been used against innocent U.S. civilians. These actions were perpetrated not by foreign terrorists but by the U.S. Army during secret "open-air" biowarfare experiments that used the American public as guinea pigs.


Military Interrogators in Afghanistan Use Detective Work in 'Mental Chess Game'

Stars and Stripes

April 30, 2002

BAGRAM, Afghanistan — On a hillside in southeastern Afghanistan, a U.S. infantryman pounces on a Taliban fighter, hog ties and blindfolds him, and rushes him into a waiting helicopter.

The enemy troop only hears "blah-blah-blah," from his U.S. captors, who yell undecipherable commands at him until he is put alone in a locked cell.

Frightened and exhausted, the prisoner feels a hand touch his shoulder, and hears someone ask in his native tongue, "How are you doing?"


How the Palestinians kill their own

With all the pictures AP sends out throughout the world showing the events of The Oslo War, you might see something besides the "plight of the poor Palestinians" ... and then again, maybe you wouldn't.

In the movie, it was the "Valley of the Sickle Moon" (the entrance is through a gorge or siq) and the resting place of the Holy Grail or the Cup of Christ. Just like the movie, Petra was indeed lost for centuries but at one time it was a major hub on the trade route....

Circa 1200 BC, this was the home of the Edomites.

Liberty Is More Important than Democracy

[Posted April 30, 2002]

The 20th century was most certainly the most inhuman and brutal one hundred years in modern history. Two World Wars as well as the Nazi and Communist forms of totalitarianism have been estimated to have caused the death of at least 250 million people. This would be equivalent to the mass murder of the entire populations of Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Peru, and Paraguay.

Evidencing a disturbing trend, another federal court has ruled that persons awaiting trial may be forcibly administered mind-altering drugs by the government in an effort to re-form their thinking and make them “competent to stand trial.”
