An Ancient Alternative to Oil
By Zed B. Starkovich
The ONLY way our past foreign policy, and present war, can be justified is if we accept the fundamental premise that WE NEED OIL TO SURVIVE. We must believe that oil is our only source of energy and without it civilization as we know it would collapse. In order to justify our more "precision bombing" must believe that protecting our oil-based economy is the same as protecting the people of America. But its all a lie. WE DON'T NEED PETROLEUM AND NEVER HAVE.
Genocide and the Drug War
By Zed B. Starkovich
I sent this letter to Col. Fletcher Prouty, author of JFK and The Secret Team, as well as the basis for 'Man X' in Oliver Stone's film JFK (based on Prouty's book). Col. Prouty served as the chief of special operations for the Joint Chiefs of Staff during the Kennedy years and was directly in charge of the global system designed to provide military support for the clandestine activities of the CIA. He was at the epicenter of the events that shaped our history and his work provides an invaluable glimpse into the murky corridors of military power. His patriotism and lifelong service to the people of this country will serve as a true inspiration to anybody interested in the past and concerned about the future of our great nation.

Monthly Review - May, 1949
Most of the major states of history owed their existence to conquest. The conquering peoples established themselves, legally and economically, as the privileged class of the conquered country. They seized for themselves a monopoly of the land ownership and appointed a priesthood from among their own ranks. The priests, in control of education, made the class division of society into a permanent institution and created a system of values by which the people were thenceforth, to a large extent unconsciously, guided in their social behavior.
"Dick" Cheney Made Millions Off Oil Deals with Saddam Hussein
By Martin A. Lee
During former defense secretary Richard Cheney's five-year tenure as chief executive of Halliburton, Inc., his oil services firm raked in big bucks from dubious commercial dealings with Iraq. Cheney left Halliburton with a $34 million retirement package last July when he became the GOP's vice-presidential candidate.
Pot Shrinks Tumors; Government Knew in '74
By Raymond Cushing, AlterNet - May 31, 2000
The term medical marijuana took on dramatic new meaning in February, 2000 when researchers in Madrid announced they had destroyed incurable brain tumors in rats by injecting them with THC, the active ingredient in cannabis. The Madrid study marks only the second time that THC has been administered to tumor-bearing animals; the first was a Virginia investigation 26 years ago. In both studies, the THC shrank or destroyed tumors in a majority of the test subjects.

War is a Racket
By Major General Smedley Butler, Forum magazine, September, 1934
WAR is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives.
Hemp for Victory
By the U.S. Department of Agriculture
Here's the film our Federal Government made, and now says doesn't exist. If you think Hemp as a natural resource is a Hippie pipe dream, try not to blow your mind on the truth.
New Billion Dollar Crop
Popular Mechanics, 1938
During the World War II raw materials shortage Henry Ford built a car "grown from the soil" that ran on hemp ethanol fuel and was built from hemp based organic plastic that was ten times stronger than steel.
The Ford Hempmobile
Popular Mechanics, 1941
This famous article from 1938 was written just months before congress quietly destroyed the hemp industry by declaring that the "demon weed marijuana" was the most "violence causing drug known to man" and that it "made Mexicans and Negroes rape white women." When the article finally ran, the promise of a second industrial revolution had been choked to death before its first breath and left to die on the dusty road of history.
