Early in 2003, this site became the depository of my weekly socio-political column, “Behind the Mirror,” for those who did not have access to its limited circulation in print.
It had been my intent to bring new perspectives that would allow us to see ourselves with borrowed eyes… not just our American eyes; thus giving us an opportunity for a more reasonable and impartial evaluation of our foreign policy.
After almost six years of observing and writing on what the Bush regime was doing to the nation and to the world, little else remained to be said, as this most incapable and villainous individual was allowed to exit government without being tried for his crimes against humanity — a legacy of perversity that defies historical comparison in the United States.
Two terms of the Bush presidency left the nation economically bankrupt and depression-bound, after helping to widen the abyss between rich and poor — the latter including in its ranks half of the so-called middle class of past decades. And morally bankrupt as well, as the fervor of empire reached its highest pitch during this neoconservative reign.
After three years into the Obama presidency, Americans are evidencing that change in America, under the existing concentration of power and wealth, is not about to take place. Not with a two-party system that owes its existence to that “power and wealth.”
Necessary changes in foreign policy – the principal cause for all OUR wars, and in domestic economic policy – the reason for grouping Americans in two camps of rich and poor, are not about to happen during this presidency, so we will continue challenging the state of American politics with our progressive voice, our cry for social justice.
And we will do it without dogma, only with the Gospel of Truth.
