"The aim of the High is to remain where they are. the aim of the Middle is to change places with the High. The aim of the Low, when they have an aim -- for it is an abiding characteristic of the Low that they are too much crushed by drudgery to be more than intermittently conscious of anything outside their daily lives -- is to abolish all distinctions and create a society in which all men shall be equal. Thus throughout history a struggle which is the same in its main outlines recurs over and over again. For long periods the High seem to be securely in power, but sooner or later there always comes a moment when they lose either their belief in themselves, or the capacity to govern efficiently, or both. They are then overthrown by the Middle, who enlist the Low on their side by pretending to them that they are fighting for liberty and justice. As soon as they have reached their objective, the Middle thrust the Low back into their old position of servitude, and themselves become the High. Presently a new middle group splits off from one of the other groups, or from both of them, and the struggle begins all over again."

-- George Orwell, 1984

 "It is no accident that the sinister image of the mad anarchist is so accepted. The State, the press and all the assorted authoritarian types, use every means at their disposal to present anarchy as an unthinkable state of carnage and chaos. We can expect little else from power-mongers who would have no power to monger if we had our way. They have to believe that authority and obedience are essential in order to justify their own crimes to themselves. The TV, press and films all preach obedience, and when anarchy is mentioned at all, it is presented as mindless destruction." -- The Anarchist Media Group, Cardiff (UK)
Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)
 The CIA is the boogeyman to the world. A favorite scapegoat for all of the bad parts of U.S. foreign policy. The thing people forget is that the CIA is just a tool of the powers-that-be, and like any tool, it can be used for good or evil.
Corporatarchy - Rule by the Corporations
 Corporations, no longer bound by national laws, prowl the world looking for the best deals on labor and raw materials. Of the world's top 120 economies, nearly half are corporations, not countries. Thus the power of citizens in any nation to control corporations through whatever democratic processes are available to them is receding quickly.
Economic Documents
 The dismal science.
Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)
 The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), a division of the U.S. Department of Justice, is one of the most powerful and influential law enforcement organizations in the world.
Foreign Military & Intelligence Agencies
 All sorts of facts and rumors about our enemies and allies.
Green Planet
 Environmental issues. The ozone hole. Tree hugging for fun and profit. Toxins in the air, water, and soil. Biotechnological foodstuffs.
International Banking / Money Laundering
 Who's in charge? How does it work? What's really going on? I'd suggest that you follow the money.
 "Libertarians hold that each person has the absolute right of self-ownership over his or her life, body, speech, action and honestly acquired property. Each has the obligation to respect those same rights in mutual respect for each other's right of self-ownership. Anything that is peaceful, voluntary and honest violates no rights and thus is not a proper subject for governmental intervention." -- David Bergland
National Security Agency (NSA)
 The largest and most secret of the intelligence agencies of the U.S. government, the National Security Agency (NSA), with headquarters at Fort Meade, Maryland, has two main functions: to protect U.S. government communications and to intercept foreign communications.

Right to Keep and Bear Arms
 Ghoulishly capitalizing on the tragedy of a mass murder, the anti-gun forces are surging forward with their plans for total gun confiscation. If law-abiding private citizens were disarmed, they claim, criminals and crazies would be unable to kill and maim. That's an obvious lie - criminals, by definition, disobey laws, and madmen can kill with knives, cars or champagne bottles as easily and as senselessly as they can with guns.
Terrorists and Freedom Fighters
 One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter. Here is a collection of information on all sorts of terrorists and freedom fighters from around the world. Which is which? That's for you to decide.
The Nixon Project
 There are currently 1,779 Hours of Nixon White House Tapes available for reproduction at the National Archives in College Park, Maryland, which is approximately half of the total hours of tapes. Out of that 1,779 hours, only 60 or so hours have been transcribed. This is our private effort to transcribe all 1,779 hours of tape, a half-hour at a time.
The World Beyond the U.S.A.
U.S. Military
 Why of course the people don't want war... It is the leaders...who determine the policy and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along...all you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country. - Hermann Goering, 1936
