Our hearts go out to those lost or effected by the events of September 11, 2001.
Our government's policies, made and controlled by corporate greed, and our way of life of piggish uncaring consumerism, are the main factors responsible for bringing this tragedy upon us.
If we don't care about anybody else why should we expect them to care about us?

It is a well-known and widely accepted fact that, during wartime, news companies and governmental representatives fuse their voices together into one univocal beam of support for the national military objective. And, while, for many, this is a vital aspect of institutional patriotism, it is also a very dangerous and troubling reality. For, if the news media have abandoned their responsibility to objectively inform the population, then our concept of a democracy (which is founded on the ability for all citizens to choose their nation's destiny based on a full spectrum of information) is in desperate peril.
This is no ground for complacency. Opposition will inevitably emerge to the Bush administration and American capitalism, but to be effective it must be based on the development of political consciousness among masses of working people.
"Men fear thought as they fear nothing else on earth. Thought is subversive and revolutionary, destructive and terrible. Thought is merciless to privilege, established institutions, and comfortable habit. Thought is great and swift and free..."
