James Bovard, author of Attention Deficit Democracy, discusses his article “America’s Sham War on Terrorism;” how the meaning of “terrorism” has been twisted, so that it never applies to government violence, no matter the motive; the resistance movements throughout modern history that have fought against state aggression, only to be called terrorists; and why, though we are in dark times, the republic isn’t dead yet.

MP3 here. (19:24)

James Bovard is a contributor to The American Conservative magazine and policy advisor at The Future of Freedom Foundation. He is the author of Attention Deficit Democracy, The Bush Betrayal and many other books.

    I'm glad some people actually get it. The hypocrisy of the US government is astounding.

  9. An interesting discussion is price comment. I believe that you should write extra on this matter, it might not be a taboo topic however typically individuals are not sufficient to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers

  10. Basically: I’ve been won-over by the global financial doom-and-gloomers regarding the economy. Has someone identified a twinkling of hope throughout this “recession”?

  11. I realize exactly what you suggest about the financial system. This rising cost of living is bad enough and we also can easily see it’ll probably intensify. sigh.

  12. I realize exactly what you suggest in regards to the financial system. The inflation isn’t good and we figure it will eventually intensify. sigh.

  13. I know what you mean about the overall economy. This rising cost of living is detrimental and we also can easily see it is going to exacerbate. sigh.

  14. I know the thing you suggest regarding the current economic climate. This inflation is not good and we also figure it will eventually become worse. sigh.
