It's another rather large edition, but as I am only sending it out twice monthly now, there is double the time to skim articles, reflect on the fresh art and follow up on details. I have weaved the stories in a way that hopefuly has an appropriate and pleasing flow.

By John Pilger
Liberals say that the United States is once again a
"nation of moral ideals", but behind the façade little
has changed. With his government of warmongers,
Wall Street cronies and polluters from the Bush and
Clinton eras, Barack Obama is merely upholding the
myths of a divine America.

QUOTES FOR JULY 19:
"The life of the nation is secure only while the nation is honest, truthful, and virtuous.": Frederick Douglass - [Frederick Baily] (1818- 1895), Escaped slave, abolitionist, author, editor of the North Star and later the New National Era
"Man's character is his fate.": Heraclitus - (c.540-480 BC) Greek philosopher
"There have been periods of history in which episodes of terrible violence occurred but for which the word violence was never used.... Violence is shrouded in justifying myths that lend it moral legitimacy, and these myths for the most part kept people from recognizing the violence for what it was. The people who burned witches at the stake never for one moment thought of their act as violence; rather they thought of it as an act of divinely mandated righteousness. The same can be said of most of the violence we humans have ever committed": ~Gil Bailie
"...needy men, and hardy, not contented with their present condition, as also all men that are ambitious of military command, are enclined to continue the causes of warre; and to stirre up trouble and sedition: for there is no honour Military but by warre; nor any such hope to mend an ill game, as by causing a new shuffle." Thomas Hobbes, Leviathan, Part I, ch. 11
"If the citizens neglect their Duty and place unprincipled men in office, the government will soon be corrupted; laws will be made, not for the public good so much as for selfish or local purposes; corrupt or incompetent men will be appointed to execute the Laws; the public revenues will be squandered on unworthy men; and the rights of the citizen will be violated or disregarded.": Noah Webster - (1758-1843) American patriot and scholar, author of the 1806 edition of the dictionary that bears his name, the first dictionary of American English usage.
"O for a lodge in some vast wilderness, Some boundless contiguity of shade; Where rumor of oppression and deceit, Of unsuccessful or successful war, Might never reach me more. "William Cowper - Source: Task (bk. II, l. 1)
"Without an unfettered press, without liberty of speech, all of the outward forms and structures of free institutions are a sham, a pretense -- the sheerest mockery. If the press is not free; if speech is not independent and untrammeled; if the mind is shackled or made impotent through fear, it makes no difference under what form of government you live, you are a subject and not a citizen": William E. Borah
"If you think there is freedom of the press in the United States, I tell you there is no freedom of the press... " : Bill Moyers
"Protection against government is now not enough to guarantee that a man who has something to say shall have a chance to say it. The owners and managers of the press determine which person, which facts, which version of the facts, and which ideas shall reach the public": Commission On Freedom Of The Press
Why do we kill people who are killing people to show that killing people is wrong?: Holly Near
We kill because we are afraid of our own shadow, afraid that if we used a little common sense we'd have to admit that our glorious principles were wrong: Henry Miller, The Wisdom of the Heart, 1941
The era of true peace on earth will not come as long as a tremendous percentage of your taxes goes to educate men in the trades of slaughter: Reginald Wright Kauffman
The aim of military training is not just to prepare men for battle, but to make them long for it: Louis Simpson
Have not I myself known five hundred living soldiers sabred into crows' meat for a piece of glazed cotton, which they call their flag; which had you sold it at any market-cross, would not have brought above three groschen?: Thomas Carlyle, "Sartor Resartus"
"It does not require a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority keen to set brush fires in people's minds": Samuel Adams
"You're here because you know something. What you know you can't explain -- but you feel it. You've felt it your entire life; that there's something wrong with the world; you don't know what it is, but it's there, like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad. It is this feeling that has brought you to me. Do you know what I'm talking about?"
"The Matrix," Neo asks?
You can feel it when you go to work, when you go to church, when you pay your taxes; it is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth."
And Neo asks, "What truth?"
"That you are a slave Neo, like everyone else, you were born into bondage; born into a prison that you cannot smell or taste or touch; a prison for your mind. Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Matrix is. You have to experience it for yourself." The Matrix (1999)
