State Building Follies

Here is a letter submitted to the NY Times on the "Calvinist Manifesto" by Francis Fukuyama.

Democracy or F.D.Rs Nuclear World Oligarchy?

Thank you for publishing the essay by Francis Fukuyama entitled "The Calvinist Manifesto" on March 13, 2005. This essay describes one of the biggest problems of today's free and democratic society - the "iron cage".

In his book State Building, Francis Fukuyama favors small "strong states" in a global world of modern rationalism. His perspective has been countered by Charles A. Kupchan in The End of the American Era. There, Charles Kupchan makes the case for strong alliances between countries to guide the world order. The most important point that Fukuyama fails to make in his essay is that the success of the "Protestant Ethic" in the world was largely due to the new availability of substantial natural resources. For example, England was largely deforested by the 1630s. These resources then again became "limited" as the East met the West in America. The limitation of these resources with the concurrent increase in speed of communication can explain the freedom of the slaves, the rise of communism, and the emergence of the digital era. When upward mobility was needed after all natural resources were accounted for, human resources were made available for profit. Millions of people have been slaughtered for no other reason than for being affiliated with the wrong political party or religion. In this century, genocide has been performed on a scale never before seen in human history. Even in the "iron cage" of the nuclear world, it happens. Would the majority of Protestants support this? - Certainly not. Would they support an "iron cage" that mined resources from the disenfranchised? - the answer is clearly, yes.

An "iron cage" is created when migration is no longer an answer when disagreements come up and small states do not support their democratic voters when they are seduced by a superpower. It is a highly relevant issue today that small countries in the EU have backed the only remaining superpower in the invasion of Iraq. One superpower has empowered the leaders of those small states to ignore their electorate. Can we then view this new world order as "F.D.R.s Nuclear World Oligarchy"? Isn't this a power based on rank rather than equality?

In the last sentence of Dr. Fukuyama's essay he asks "whether living in the iron cage of modern rationalism is such a terrible thing after all." The "iron cage" has clearly been discredited. The genocides of this century are not the only reason. For example, one small country was able to slaughter 3000 innocent Americans on 9/11/01 using the resources of this "iron cage." At the same time, the one remaining superpower of this "iron cage," the United States, has invaded an oil rich foreign nation against the recommendations of the United Nations with false information. We live in an age when physicians can declare the President of the United States incompetent. Are they likely to declare a president incompetent for invading other countries against their electorate's wishes? A president who invades a country with false intelligence? A president that goes against the American Medical Association? If Francis Fukuyama has his way, are we to all to be doing "calisthenics" for psychiatrists and their high ranked friends in an "iron cage"?

Thank you Henry!!! Bush Explains Easter

"Easter is the victory of light over darkness," Bush said. "In this season of renewal, we remember that hope leads us closer to truth, and that in the end, even death itself will be defeated. That is the promise of Easter morning."

He is a member of the religious right and he describes Easter as the equinox???

Is his party hitting up atheists for support? Or is their brand of religious support telling us something else?

Barron von Osama bin Laden?

Bush is selling NUCLEAR CAPABLE F16s to Pakistan even though they denied us entrance into their North Eastern Districts to capture Osama Bin Laden.

India has just helped out our Pharmaceutical companies by requiring patents on drugs and now they are being punished!

Does Texas have a significant Phamaceutical industry - H@LL NO!

This is no time to give a muslim nuclear power an easy way to deliver nuclear weapons to their enemy.

ANWR sets a bad precedent for USA- I'm afraid

Everyone agrees that human activity is warming the planet, yet Bush refuses to sign Kyoto and is even suggesting to drill for more oil in our LAST PRISTINE NATIONAL WONDER!!!

CONSERVATION IS THE ANSWER. But not to an oil man who does not deny his cocaine use.

Wolfowitz at World Bank is Comical

Bush has supported Wolfowitz to run the World Bank.

He's got a big wad of Texas cash in his hands courtesy of our wallets. It is now a record deficit. And now he's hitting up the third world with Wolfowitz from Iraq!

Democracy in Mideast with Oil over $50, 1500 troops dead

And chanting all the way to the bank!!!!

Pretty much sums it up.

The Texas boys did a number on our governement!

And who is responsible: Kathleen Harris and Ralph Nader!

Conservation would have been Fair to the American people!


Bush created the SS problem!

If Bush had not dipped into the Federal Budget to help himself and his cronies, THERE WOULD BE NO PROBLEM WITH SOCIAL SECURITY FOR 75 YEARS!!!!!!!!!!

Tenet Blamed for 911


Tenet and CIA blamed for 911?

The C.I.A. did a spectacular job. Washington, at the least, dropped the ball.

1. Tenet is blamed for 911 failures despite the fact that he warned the Govt. as early as 1995 about the increase in terrorism - before the Oklahoma Federal Builiding fell from a truck bomb!!!

2. The F.B.I. was informed at least 3 weeks prior to 9/11/01.

3. Minnesota had one of the terrorists IN CUSTODY befor 911.

4. The Highjackers were even stopped at the AIRPORT.


AND Furthermore, the CIA was told not to undermine the Bush administration in 2004.
