But he has yet to endorse that as an alternative. When Las Casas published his tract on the Spanish experience in the New World, it became a huge bestseller, although the Vatican suppressed his greatest work for three centuries.� At least Las Casas’s work is readily available today.� The suppression of Mark Twain’s anti-imperial writings is one of the most impressive instances of how Western censorship works.� Western censorship is not accomplished by government or church interests, but by corporate interests, reflecting who is really in charge.� For nearly a century, it was virtually impossible to even know that Twain had ever written any anti-imperialist essays, as virtually all of his biographers silently passed over his life’s most important work.� His anti-imperialist essays were never included in anthologies of his work.� Finally, in 1992 there was a publication regarding his work, in a small-volume printing titled Mark Twain's Weapons of Satire: Anti-Imperialist Writings on the Philippines.� The book quickly went out of print and is nearly impossible to find today.� I tried to locate the book several times over the years and finally located a copy for about $200, and it is not even really a collection of Twain's anti-imperialist writings, but about the story around them.� That kind of suppression and censorship, done by the “free market,” exceeded anything that the Stalinist Soviet Union or Maoist China accomplished.� George Orwell, writing the forward to perhaps the 20th century’s most read political book, Animal Farm, remarked on how the West’s “free press” performs its censorship.� His publishers, as if to prove him right, censored that preface, and it has never been restored to its rightful place, and still is virtually unknown.� Here is a sample of Tw ain’s neglected work, which has poignant application to today’s post 9/11 world:� “A Patriot is merely a rebel at the start. “In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned.

Lithuania’s ongoing recovery hinges on export growth, which is being hampered by economic slowdowns in the EU and Russia. Planters initially used the fertile soil for indigo and tobacco, but these crops were soon replaced by cotton in north Louisiana and sugar cane in the more tropical southern part of the state. A third change was the emergence of a truly global economy. Seoul is also home to endless street food vendors and vast nightlife districts, an extraordinarily high-pressure educational system and serene Buddhist temples, a dynamic trend-setting youth culture and often crushing conformism, extraordinary architecture.

Its most visible cultural sign was the Renaissance, a flowering of art, literature, philosophy, and science centered in (and paid for by) royal courts and wealthy men and women in Italy and, a bit later, in northwestern Europe.

Most of the indentured servants were English farmers who had been pushed off their lands due to the expansion of livestock raising, the enclosure of land, and overcrowding in the countryside. North America is the source of much of what humanity knows about geologic time periods. [36] The geographic area that would later become the United States has been the source of more varieties of dinosaurs than any other modern country. [36] According to paleontologist Peter Dodson, this is primarily due to stratigraphy, climate and geography, human resources, and history. [36] Much of the Mesozoic Era is represented by exposed outcrops in the many arid regions of the continent. [36] The most significant Late Jurassic dinosaur-bearing fossil deposit in North America is the Morrison Formation of the western United States.

The Aztec had settled in what is now Mexico City in AD 1345. A severe depression, growing public and external indebtedness, and an unprecedented bank run culminated in 2001 in the most serious economic, social, and political crisis in the country's turbulent history.

Nearly every day du ring the Yugoslavian bombings, NATO admitted that it bombed refugees fleeing the area, towns of the civilians they were "saving," or other innocents.� In a powerfully reported story on October 17, 1999, the London Observer, in conjunction with the Danish Politiken, cited several highly placed NATO sources who stated that the "accidental" American bombing of the Chinese embassy during the Yugoslavia bombing was intentional.� The Chinese apparently used their embassy as a radio relay station for the Serbs after America had destroyed Serbia's communication system.� The bomb that the USA used on the embassy was satellite-guided and could hit you as you read this.� It apparently was not a case of mistaken identity.� Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting took the USA's media to task for not reporting that story to the American people, and the New York Times and USA Today provided the media's standard lame and hypocritical responses.� When the story covers American malfeasance, the USA's newspapers will not give the story one line of ink if they cannot prove it in a court of law, beyond any shred of doubt (and even then, they usually will not, like those UN votes ).� If the story is about the crimes of Saddam Hussein or Milosevic, however, any rumor will do, or even fabricated “news.”� As in Ir aq, the USA used radioactive weapons on Yugoslavia.� Depleted Uranium ("DU") is nuclear waste.� When U-235 is refined from uranium [369], U-238 is left over .� It is not radioactive enough to make good reactor fuel or nuclear explosives, but works great as a penetrating missile, as DU is 1.6 times as dense as lead.� DU is effective at penetrating tanks and other targets, but it is also radioactive for billions of years.� DU is one suspected culprit in Gulf War Syndrome and escalating Iraqi birth defects, as many thousands of people have been exposed to the radioactive debris of those weapons.� In one sense, they get creativity points.� Why spend billions to bury nuclear waste when America can make bombs from it and drop it on nations that it destroys?� Not long after the NATO bombings, America’s European allies expressed surprise and alarm that their soldiers who participated in the NATO bombings were exposed to DU debris.� Why were they surprised?
