I can imagine writing something like, ""there is nothing constructive about the Bush regime; it's a political and civilisational destroyer." Everytime I ponder the horific dumbing down and levelling of MacCulture ... globalization is extinguishing whole cultures just as corporatism is extinguishing species, such thoughts come to mind. In fact, I know a number of people who might utter that sort of phrase, and not always as part of a rant. But that isn't my sentence, and it wasn't written by one of my friends or collaborators. It's from the director of the Transnational Foundation for Peace and Future Research, Jan Oberg.   see The Political Foundamentalism of George W. Bush [counterpunch.org]

Political Fundamentalism in DC
Will Bush Prevail or Listen and Think?

Political fundamentalism
The Bush regime is politically fundamentalist: we are right, they are wrong. It's based on the flawed assumption that policies can be based on: a) dictating to friends and foes alike that they are either with us/U.S. or against us/U.S., and b) ignoring every type of listening, consulting and consensus-building policies with rightfully concerned parties, including its closest friends.
So, regrettable as it is, it's the Bush regime's policies, not Saddam Hussein's, that have split the West and now shake institutions such as the United Nations, the EU and NATO".

News: Michael Albert, author of such as "Moving Forward: Program for a Participatory Economy" and "The Trajectory of Change: Activist Strategies for Social Transformation" has come out with another one: "Parecon: Life After Capitalism" ( it's at on the Amazon site in Canada).

Human need, not corporate greed ... without justice, there can be no peace. That's the meme stringing these items together.
