America must come home: we must end the Empire of Militarism and of playing the role of policeman of the planet. Both of these habitual roles are backfiring and depleting trillions of taxpayer dollars that could be better used toward rebuilding our country’s infrastructure, strengthening our catastrophe-response networks and preparing for the coming megastorms like Hurricane Harvey.

Many of those most affected are minorities and low-income families with no homes, health care or jobs to look forward to once the waters recede.

Will this tragedy teach us the lessons that so many politicians and impulsive voters have been denying for so long?

Ralph Nader is a consumer advocate, lawyer, and author. His latest book is The Seventeen Solutions: Bold Ideas for Our American Future. Other recent books include, The Seventeen Traditions: Lessons from an American Childhood, Getting Steamed to Overcome Corporatism: Build It Together to Win, and "Only The Super-Rich Can Save Us" (a novel).

    Still from “On the Beach.”

    There is no fundamental difference between Democrats and Republicans. The terms “left” and “right” are meaningless.  Most of America’s modern wars were started not by conservatives, but by liberal Democrats.

    http://evergreenedigest.org/sites/default/files/War%20Peace%20Tree.jpgAugust 4, 2017 | The US submarine captain says, “We’ve all got to die one day, some sooner and some later. The trouble always has been that you’re never ready, because you don’t know when it’s coming. Well, now we do know and there’s nothing to be done about it.”

    He says he will be dead by September. It will take about a week to die, though no one can be sure. Animals live the longest.

    John Pilger is an Australian journalist and documentary maker. One of only two to win Britain's Journalist of the Year Award twice, his documentaries have received academy awards in Britain and the US. Based in London, he is known for his polemical campaigning style: "Secretive power loathes journalists who do their job, who push back screens, peer behind façades, lift rocks. Opprobrium from on high is their badge of honour."

Jesselyn Cook, Huffington Post 

08/10/2017 | The U.S. has issued a series of dire warnings to North Korea in recent days, as hostilities over Pyongyang’s advancing nuclear capabilities swell and the specter of a military confrontation looms.

Kim Jong Un’s regime “should cease any consideration of actions that would lead to the end of its regime and the destruction of its people,” U.S. Secretary of Defense James Mattis cautioned this week. He added it “would lose any arms race or conflict it initiates.” His remarks echoed President Donald Trump’s vow to meet Pyongyang with “fire and fury” if it continues to threaten Americans.

August 9, 2017 | Here is the plain truth: if the United States is going to take military action against North Korea, it should only happen after Congress exercises its Constitutional duty as the sole branch of government responsible for declaring war.

Saturday 1 July 2017 | James Rogers and Renan Reyes, veterans of the Vietnam war, each made a trip to Washington on Wednesday to see the Vietnam Veterans Memorial for the first time.

“Very impressive,” said Rogers, who is from Madison, Alabama, as a river of parents and children flowed past in bright sunshine.

“It looks like a black mark,” said Reyes, from near Charlotte, North Carolina, disapprovingly.
