A lecture given by Professor Noam Chomsky in Caracas, Venezuela 29 August 2009 (updated September 9) on the U.S. plundering of Latin America and the corporate State.


A newly leaked terrorism assessment from a law enforcement fusion center in Virginia singles out Historically Black Colleges as potential “radicalization nodes” for terrorists. Reminder that the State is not the Black man’s friend? (more…)

The guy toward the end saying that gays in San Fransisco don’t really make the statement some could make in Nebraska.

Not necessarily. If the people “protesting” actually protested, it would make a statement. To protest, one shows the value they add to the collective society by removing what they contribute to those who are oppressing them; the protester wouldn’t patronize businesses that aid the marketplace.

Seeing as this is a protest stemmed from gay marriage arguments, this protest is a bit of a joke as is every outrage directed toward the results of the Prop 8 ballot measure and Prop 8’s mere existence on the ballot itself. If the LGBT community wants to make a statement, they’d not go to work or patronize businesses and marry.

Flood the churches willing to perform the ceremonies. Get a group of ordained ministers in the LGBT community to conduct ceremonies in public.

To protest Prop 8, every proponent of gay rights and liberty — gay or straight — should make the statement that marriage is a pledge between two consenting adults and God, not the State. Get married and don’t apply for a license. File for civil union and lobby to separate the church from the State and abolish marriage licensing — as it’s an illegitimate authority of government to verify or override an ordained minister’s religious ceremony that violates the rights of no one.

If it’s all about people’s warped vision of God and forcing that vision on others based on irrational subjectivity (bigotry), test their faith. Is marriage a union before God or the State? If marriage is a union before God, the authority lies with God. If marriage is about the State, one can’t argue denying the right for any two consenting adults to file for civil union — and no one really does.

The burden of proof is not on gays to justify their right to marry. It’s on the State to justify its authority in this matter. Until then, marriage licensing is absolutely illegitimate.
