Free or Donation
A couple days ago, after 3 years of working on it, I finally finished the ebook version of “Capitalism Must Die!”
Feel free to download it and share it with others. I want it to be widely distributed and contribute to the fight against capitalism, so I’ve made it “pay anything or nothing” and used a Creative Commons license. I hope it is useful. We really need to bring the system down, or all could soon be lost.

For better or for worse, it looks like genetic engineering is here to stay, which begs the question: How will we know when we’ve gone too far? What’s the line between scientific progress and irreversibly changing the DNA of a life form. If that sounds extreme, just check out these 10 insane cases of genetic engineering. View full article »
Marie’s lawyer sues FBI for refusal to release FOIA records
Attorney Claims USA Chills Rights of Environmentalists
