The United Nations: Our Children's New Parents?
The UNCRC infringes upon parental authority and represents a massive intrusion by the state into family affairs. It has the potential to radically alter parent-child relationships. The UN definitely has no business telling parents how to raise their children and neither does the government unless there is evidence of neglect or abuse.

Edgar Allan Poe: A Tragic, but Talented, American Original
Statue of Edgar Allan Poe Edgar Allan Poe, poet, novelist and literary critic, died in 1849, age 40, under mysterious circumstances, in Baltimore, MD. The British author, Peter Ackroyd, insightfully captures the trials and tribulations of this great man of letters in his latest tome, "Poe: A Life Cut Short." Poe invented the modern detective story and his poem, "The Raven," is a classic in the genre. Ackroyd reveals Poe's battle with the bottle, and adds a wrinkle: his aversion to sex!

How "a good education" sustains and perpetuates social and political challenges in the US
I got on KBOO this morning with Scott Forster (spelling?) and got a minute or so to plug portland.indymedia and bring up the problem of propaganda and thought control in our educational system, reaching perhaps 50,000 listeners. I figured it might be good to provide a few links and excerpts from Noam Chomsky, whom I was able to mention as having a facetious attitude towards those with "a good education." There's also a link to an overview of "the propaganda model" and, last but not least, John Taylor Gatto's excelling distillation of institutional education itself in his online book on the history of u.s. education.

Survival book list
I found some interesting book list on a peak oil website. I think any material on survival is mui importante at this juncture. Of course you can buy these books anywhere. It is a given the country is tanking. While the fall of this country or capitalism is much desired, anyone could have seen it was inevitable. Adam Smith may has well be smoking crack when he wrote, "The Wealth of Nations." Actually if he did, he might have come up with a saner economic philosophy. Hey, though; that book was written 200 years ago. Isn't it a little OUT OF DATE! Still, for me, I don't gloat over stupidity anymore. It is just tragic, really, how human nature is and how we humans cling to tradition, even if it kills us. Yet the plains tribes had many stories warning of the dangers of unchecked adherence to tradition. Read Seven Arrows, by Hyemeyosts Storm to here the allegorical stories and the solutions to this human glitch. We decimated those cultures. Just shows the karma which comes around. All people has wisdom and uh, oh, we've wiped them out. Egoism, ethnocentrism and greed are our heritage though; they are the worst vices. This is what capitalism was borne out of. Legitimizing the lowest common denominator of human nature under the guise of a God approved ideology.
