CP - Ben Rosenfeld - " ...Both the Red Scare and the Green Scare fuel
and are fueled by a hysterical hatred for a broad political philosophy
� Communism, and now Anarchism � caricatured as a tangible threat
casting its shadow over the land. Thus, anarchists � a diverse group
of people across all walks of life who generally agree that most
government structures are repressive, that people shouldn't be greedy,
and that we should help one another, but who are probably more likely
to disagree on the specifics of history, social organization, or
political strategy than any two people who identify as Christian,
Muslim, Republican, or Democrat � are reductively drawn as
bomb-throwing lunatics." - MIT Professor Noam Chomsky, who has lobbed
many books at the public, is an anarchist. George Orwell was one too.
The federal government has been salivating to put Rod Coronado back in
prison since he got out in 1999, later refusing to repent for his role in a 1992 arson at a Michigan State University fur research lab.
Federal officials have publicly branded Coronado a leader of the
Animal Liberation Front, even though the ALF is apparently
non-hierarchical. He is, however, an unabashed advocate of property
destruction in defense of animals, and his indictment in San Diego in
February, for giving a speech in which he explained how the incendiary
devices used in the Michigan arson were made, is a flimsy pretext to
punish him for his radical views.
