    Interest"; that is a hollow, meaningless buzzword used to justify the otherwise unjustifiable. We have no national interest. Dow and Olin and the MIC have their interests, but they people, the real corpus of the nation, have no such interest.

    None of us personally benefits from deposing Allende and replacing him with Pinochet, from invading Viet Nam and slaughtering innumerable civilians, or Iraq, or Syria, or overthrowing Mossadegh or destabilizing Cambodia or enslaving the Moros, of, for  FSM's sake, trying to destroy Gulf Oil resources and operations abroad in order to try to replace a socialist government with a fascist one.

    That, in its essence, is fascism--ownership of government by an individual, by a group, or by any other controlling private power. -- Franklin D. Roosevelt --
