Once upon a time, somewhere in post-war Eastern Europe, there was a great famine in which people jealously hoarded whatever food they could find, hiding it even from their friends and neighbors. One day a wandering soldier came into a village and began asking questions as if he planned to stay for the night. "There's not a bite to eat in the whole province," he was told. read more »

Critically acclaimed
To be culture bias,
Not even of dark complexion
So tension rises,
Gaining high
But shot down
By redneck views,
I’m a white man
Who sings
A nigger’s blues,
So i restate it all
And throw in
An apology,
It’s not my fault
I can grasp
Anthropology,
You’ve been gassed
By your own
Pig’s feces,
Can’t tell the difference

The Peace Report, Issue #6
By Louise Diamond, Ph.D.

The Building a Culture of Peace conference coming soon in Santa Fe has spawned a very interesting phenomenon. It seems some of the local peace groups (especially anti-nuclear weapons proliferation groups, as befits the area around Los Alamos) are ‘up in arms’ about the conference.

They have various complaints (the State of New Mexico, which is sponsoring the event, cannot do so with integrity since it is aligned with the nuclear industry; the money for the conference would be better spent being given to the complaining peace organizations; no issues of real substance will be discussed there and no new ideas will come out of it; etc.) read more »
