"You might think these Christian activists represent the furthest shores of American politico-religious wackiness. The politicians don't think so. This conference began with a videotaped benediction straight from the Oval office. Some of the most influential republicans in Congress addressed the gathering including - not once, but twice - Tom DeLay, who is hot favourite to take over as majority leader of the House of Representatives after the midterm elections on November 5, thus becoming arguably the most powerful man on Capitol Hill." <-- sadly, this is not a joke
Some prices of protest:
> Exorbitant bails -- some as high as $1 million -- keeping peaceful protesters in prison.
> Felony charges used to threaten or punish protesters with loss of voting rights and jobs.
> Federal RICO and domestic terrorist legislation employed to stigmatize peaceful protesters.
> Permits to protest denied for legitimate protests by activist groups.
> Trespass and other false charges fabricated by police.
> Police granted immunity from lawsuits, leaving them free to abuse protesters' rights.
> "Zero tolerance" rules which expel students who participate in nonviolent protests.
> Long sentences in overcrowded and inhuman conditions meted out to protesters
> Seizure of organizations' bank accounts so that members who protest can be fined.
> Protesters arrested and held without charge, preventing them from further protest.
> Legal distinctions blurred between violent and nonviolent protest, so that all protesters are demonized as "anarchists," "hoodlums" and "domestic terrorists."
> Pre-protest surveillance, infiltration and investigations to identify, arrest and detain nonviolent protesters prior to protest.
> Police entrapment used to fabricate grounds for arrest and charges.
> Permits denied to activist groups to keep them from gathering on public lands.
> And nonviolent protesters barred from talking about their causes or motives during trial.
"We argue a connection exists between the restrictiveness of a country's civilian weapons policy and its liability to commit genocide upon its own people"
"Neurotypical syndrome is a neurobiological disorder characterized by preoccupation with social concerns, delusions of superiority, and obsession with conformity."
"Eleven years ago, I spent my summer holidays as a guerrilla in northern Iraq. It was the end of my second year at university and the Gulf War had just finished. I neither wanted to go inter-railing nor work in Waitrose. So I went to Iraq with a friend in search of Kurdish guerrillas. Both of us had recently been dumped by our first serious girlfriends and had read too many French post-war novels. We met in Istanbul and hitched across Turkey towards the Iraqi border. It was a phenomenally stupid thing to do. I'd like to say it was because we deeply believed in the Kurdish cause, but actually we just wanted some good stories for the college bar."

"I confess, too, that I flinch when I hear American, British and French fulminations against weapons of mass destruction, ignoring the fact that they are the proud owners of massive quantities of those weapons, unapologetically insisting that they are essential for their national security, and will remain so."
