Tomorrow there will be apricots

Screed replete with literary references and a certain verve.
Osama ben Laden- The man at war with Western (i.e. American) Imperialism and the Modern World itself. Has he read Marshall Sahlins, John Zerzan, Hakim Bey/Peter Lamborn Wilson, Rene Guenon?

The mad man on the mountain- Hassan I Sabbah- THE WEST IS LIVING ON BORROWED NOVA TIME- Who will pay back? To whom?

The United States Prepares for the Permanent Revolution- (see poem of that name by George Hitchcock.)

Bagdhad circa 800 CE: public streets lit at night, public libraries, religous tolerence (all the children of Abraham, Buddhists, Taoists, Hindus, 'pagans', etc. et al.)

The message of Jesus (secret Wobbly code name: "Jerusalem Slim") betrayed. A new crusade? Same as the old crusade. Just who the hell is primative here?...and when will the future begin?

Wall street shut down. Military Headquarters on fire.--"The imaginary is what tends to become real"--Andre

Randem events in a dying universe--SOLVE ET COAGLIA.
