    For the New Democratic Majority: An Exit Plan for Iraq

    Madam Speaker has offered a 100 hour plan.  Here's a protocol for beginning to disengage from Iraq.  This protocol is creative and forward-looking, and it takes responsibility for the chaos America under Bush has created.  It cannot possibly be called "cut-and-run" or "defeatist."

    Now that they've taken control of the House and perhaps the Congress, Speaker Pelosi and a united Democratic party should promote convocation of a Middle East Peace Conference with every country and faction invited, including Iran,  Hamas, Hezbollah, Israel, Syria, et al. All offensive or retaliatory operations by all participants are to cease for the duration of the Conference. The goal of the Conference will be to arrange a stable peace in Iraq so the U.S. can withdraw its forces and close its bases.  The U.S. will commit to withdraw all of its forces when the peace plan is in place and will give a gesture of good faith by immediately withdrawing 10,000 troops.  All parties must agree to the peace plan and must commit to the conference process until the plan is completed.  

  • comment on a post Terror Not What it Once Was for Republicans over 7 years ago

        Terror is the product du jour the Corporatocracy is selling today.  

        The events of 911 and the uses the Bush Administration have made of those events illustrate the extent to which America has become a Corporatocracy.  

        The qualities of the corporation have become the qualities of government.  

        The issue is not the Republicans, and it is also not the Democrats.  These parties have succumbed to the ideals and operating principles of the corporation.  

        Commentators on this and other weblogs write as if persons like Cheney, Bush, or other Republicans should experience shame or guilt at their atrocious lying.  If these were persons and not corporate lickspittles, we might reasonably expect admissions of responsibility and displays of shame.  You will not ever see Cheney's face redden with the shame-display or his eyes look down and his shoulders hunch.  

        The events of 9/11 and the uses made of them illustrate principles of corporatism.  Only individuals who are true human beings can feel shame.  The elegance of the corporation and its relative the bureaucracy is that they create a fictional entity that does not feel disgust, shame, or guilt.  When Cheney speaks for the Corporatocracy he feels no revulsion over his role in murdering tens of thousands of human beings.  Lieberman's efforts to stay in power in some party demonstrate the importance to him of remaining in the Corporatocracy where he can be free of disgust, shame, and guilt.  He fears being out of the Corporatocracy, because then he'd be threatened with the experience of overwhelming disgust.

        I urge you commentators to widen your perspective.  Democrats won't help the nation, because Democrats (Lamont is a perfect example) are Corporatocrats.  I want a political party that celebrates people, not corporations.  Our Constitution says only human beings have inalienable rights, not corporations and bureaucracies.  Among the rights of human beings are "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."  These rights have been seized by corporations, and they're being denied to us human beings.

        The movie, the events of 911, and the uses the Bush Administration have made of those events illustrates the extent to which America has become a Corporatocracy.  

        The qualities of the corporation have become the qualities of government.  

        The issue is not the Republicans, and it is also not the Democrats.  The issue is not Iger or Eisner.  These parties and these people have succumbed to the ideals and operating principles of the corporation.  

        All the commentators act as if persons should experience shame or guilt at their atrocious lying.  If these were persons and not corporate lickspittles, we might reasonably expect admissions of responsibility and displays of shame.  You will not ever see Cheney's face redden with the shame-display or his eyes look down and his shoulders hunch.  

        "The Path to 9/11" and the events it was based on illustrate principles of corporatism.  Only individuals who are true human beings can feel shame.  The elegance of the corporation and its relative the bureaucracy is that they create a fictional entity that does not feel disgust, shame, or guilt.  When Cheney speaks for the Corporatocracy he feels no revulsion over his role in murdering tens of thousands of human beings.

  • comment on a post Lieberman's New Withdrawal Messaging over 8 years ago

        Lieberman is a lickspittle for the corporatocracy that runs America.  As America's population blasted towards 300 million, democracy has been supplanted by corporatocracy.  Democracy proved an inadequate means for regulating such a huge mass of people and the commerce they create.  

        Corporatocracy emerged as a means to manage the lives and business of an overpopulated America.  The corporatocracy comprises all three branches of government; the governmental bureaucracy at local,county, state, and federal levels; the major political parties; all the corporations including big pharm, big ag, the media, and big banking; and the military and the corporations that serve them.  

       In the corporatocratic world, individual people do not matter.  Diebold can strip away the citizens' power to elect a president, and the Supreme Court will support the corporation against the citizen, because the Supreme Court is committed to maintaining the corporatocracy.  

      In the corporatocratic world, the corporations can poison individual citizens with lead or mercury or dioxin with the support of the Supreme Court and the EPA and the encouoragement of the Executive Branch, because the lives of individual citizens are meaningless to the corporations and because the corporations are not susceptible to mercury or lead or dioxin poisoning.  

        I encourage all readers to stop focusing on the Liebermans or the Clintons on the political playing field.  We need a new vision for America in which the power of the corporatocracy is curtailed and we citizens take our country back.  We need politicians who are unaffiliated with either party or with any component of the corporatocracy.  This is the message I want to hear from persons running for office.
