“As an American writer, I often examine the story of our nation for emergent archetypes of US identity. Several are terribly embarrassing for a citizen of conscience: the Couch Potatoes of Consumer-Capitalist Society, the American Gladiator of War-Rage and Bigotry, the Avaricious and Appalling Wall St. Tycoon.”

Citizens Mobilize to Resist Undemocratic Corporate Water Grabs

“On Feb. 5, New Jersey became the latest state to subvert democracy by authorizing the fast-track sale or lease of water utilities without public notice, comment, or approval. The controversial decision highlights the intensifying struggle over who owns, controls, and profits from the most precious – and threatened – resource on Earth.”

Will the U.S. Government Stand Alone in Rejecting Children’s Rights?

“Within a matter of months, the U.S. government seems likely to become the only nation in the world still rejecting the 1989 UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. Sometimes called “the most ratified human rights treaty in history,” the Convention has been ratified by 195 nations, leaving the United States and South Sudan as the only holdouts. South Sudan is expected to move forward with ratification later this year. But there is no indication that the United States will approve this children’s defense treaty.”

Three Years Post-Trayvon: What Has Changed?

“On February 26, 2012, supposed “Neighborhood Watchman” George Zimmerman shot and killed Trayvon Martin, a 17-year-old Black man, as Martin walked home from visiting a convenience store in Sanford, Florida. The case ignited questions about racial profiling, vigilantism, and Stand Your Ground Laws. On July 13, 2013, Zimmerman, was acquitted of both the second-degree murder and manslaughter charges. Despite national and even international attention to the case, one has to wonder what has really changed in the three years since the murder of Trayvon Martin.”
