Is it time for a military coup in Israel? "The mounting public criticism of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu by past and present members of the Zionist state’s defense and intelligence establishments... recalled a comment made to me by one of its former Directors of Military Intelligence: “If we had a government consisting of only former DMI’s, we’d have had peace with the Palestinians long ago.” The USA, for that matter, needs a Constitutional Counter-Coup to reverse the 9/11 putch and restore the Constitution - as I recently recommended to Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Martin Dempsey. Knocking off Netanyahu-Barak and the Israeli 9/11 perps at the same time as the American ones would be quite a coup!
Alan Hart, who was a personal friend of both Golda Meier and Yassar Arafat and a high-level back-channel peace negotiator, chose to break his self-imposed silence on 9/11 on my radio show. His trilogy Zionism: The Real Enemy of the Jews is the best introduction available to the history of the occupation of Palestine.
Second hour: Kevin Carson, Center for a Stateless Society asks: Are we facing The Normalization of Dystopia?
"Lily Tomlin used to say "I try to be cynical, but I can't keep up." Writers of dystopian sci-fi have the same trouble keeping ahead of actual reality.
"As it happens, the real-world impetus to such creeping totalitarianism was not assassinations. It was the Drug War and 9/11. But the overall effect has been very much the same."
Kevin Carson holds the Karl Hess Chair of Social Analysis at Center for a Stateless Society, a left-wing market anarchist think tank where he writes research papers and news commentary. He’s the author of The Homebrew Industrial Revolution: A Low-Overhead Manifesto, Organization Theory: A Libertarian Perspective, and Studies in Mutualist Political Economy. His forthcoming book is tentatively titled The Desktop Regulatory State.
