MACROANALYSIS & PUBLICATIONS

ALTERNATIVES TO AMAZON (From Shel Horowitz): Given Amazon’s horrible monopoly, labor, and other practices, and the growing boycott, most books can be special-ordered by your local independent bookstore, or Powell’s in Portland (OR), Tattered Cover in Denver, or Politics-Prose.com, DC, Odyssey Books in S. Hadley, MA, etc.

ECOLOGY & CLIMATE ACTIVISM

“Reject and Protect is the slogan of the Cowboy Indian Alliance.” – Julie Greenberg
“Humans are the biggest invasive species on the planet and assume superior authority.” – Fred Cook

Bill Moyer’s strategy paper “De-Developing the US Through Nonviolence” and “Energy for a New Society: Visions of a People’s Energy Future” (with Gordon Faison?) were seminal inspirations to the anti-nuclear power movement.

FILM: PLANET OF THE HUMANS is emblematic of the controversy and conflicts over renewable energy.

BONUS REFERENCE FROM DAVID FINKE:
“Speak, Truth. To Power,” I want folks to be or become aware that it was the title of a “Working Party Paper’ convened and published by American Friends Service Committee in the mid-1950s. (I have an original copy. It’s been kept in print by AFSC, I believe.). Bayard Rustin was a participant in the group, but his name was left out of the credits, even though arguably he had given the title to the endeavor. Milton Mayer, on the working party, is the other one credited with it, claiming it was an “old Quaker phrase.” in recent years, Bayard’s name has been restored, I think I’ve heard that AFSC’s Board has given some apology about that, and has been helping rehabilitate Bayard’s reputation and bring to the fore his central part of mid-2oth century Civil Rights action, including being the organizer of the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. (King’s “I have a dream” speech, but also John Lewis’s rousing challenge… which I later put into print.)

“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”–Muhammad Ali
