Outstanding Analysis & Perspective

Brilliance, thorough research, and acute insight should be chronicled for all to see. This page seeks to further that.

 Editorials
·Authentic patriots [Kansas City Star,10/05/01] One of the more serious -- but so-far little discussed -- questions raised by the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks is about the nature of patriotism.
 Articles
·Then, Emile Zola Wrote His "J'Accuse"; Now, Tina Staik Asks, "Is it a coincidence...?" [10/11/01] "If ever there was a time to examine what is happening in our country and world—step back and look at the big picture, think, ask, question, reflect, even consider a conspiracy theory or two—this is it." [Lots of reference links!]
·To the success of the impossible: Getting to democratic media [10/11/01] ...Thus, any fundamental challenge to the current distribution of wealth and power within global capitalism will soon collide with the power of the currently dominant media. How can progressive social movements succeed when they are demonized, trivialized, or ignored by the media on which they generally depend to reach broader publics? Can ecologically sustainable economies be achieved without addressing a media/advertising complex that cultivates the desire for limitless consumption? Can ethnic and gender equality be achieved while media representations and employment practices continue (despite some progress) to stereotype, marginalize, or underrepresent women and minorities? Can social programs and workers' rights be sustained in the long run when the agenda-setting media are structurally linked to the corporate elite's interests? Can democracy itself flourish without a political communication system which nurtures equality, community, and informed engagement with public issues?
·NEEDED: AN INDEPENDENT PUBLIC BROADCASTING SERVICE [Tom Paine,10/11/01] This is the first in a series of articles that will explore the founding, current status and future of American public broadcasting. November 7 marks the 34th anniversary of the Public Broadcasting Act.
·There’s Nothing Funny About These ’Wingers [NY Observer,10/10/01] At a time when sane and sober people agree that airline security must be bolstered with new federal authority, Republican leaders are insisting that the current McDonald’s-level setup can still work just fine.
·This Is a Religious War [NY Times,10/07/01] Officials and commentators have rightly stressed that this is not a battle between the Muslim world and the West, that the murderers are not representative of Islam. President Bush went to the Islamic Center in Washington to reinforce the point. At prayer meetings across the United States and throughout the world, Muslim leaders have been included alongside Christians, Jews and Buddhists.
      The only problem with this otherwise laudable effort is that it doesn't hold up under inspection. The religious dimension of this conflict is central to its meaning. The words of Osama bin Laden are saturated with religious argument and theological language.
