"In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act."
"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public."
Theodore Roosevelt (1918)
Source of quote.
"Why of course the people don't want war ... But after all it is the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship ...Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is to tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger."
Hermann Goering, Nazi leader, at the Nuremberg Trials after World War II
"The illusion of
freedom will continue as long as it's profitable to continue the illusion. At
the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just
take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the
tables and chairs out of the way, and you will see the brick wall at the back
of the theatre."
-Frank Zappa, circa 1977
"Debate on public
issues should be uninhibited, robust, and wide open, and that ... may well
include vehement, caustic, and sometimes unpleasantly sharp attacks on
government and public officials."
Justice William J. Brennan, Jr., New York Times v. Sullivan, 1964
The Ramblings Of A Truly Frustrated and Angry American
Another Perspective exists to offer news and commentary that the American people cannot obtain through the corporately owned and conservatively slanted media outlets.
Another Perspective exists to demand that the American government be seized from the contemptible grasp and domination of the executives of Corporate America and the wealthy and have it returned to its legal and rightful owners; the people of this nation.
Another Perspective warns that the fear of a "One-World Government" is a distraction from the reality that we are very near to a world owned and operated by global corporations.
Another Perspective reminds the people that we are but parasitic passengers on a small speck of dust orbiting an average and minor star among billions of others in a distant arm of a typical spiral galaxy traveling in a universe of unimaginable size and of a countless age. We are all in this together, like it or not, and there is no one available who can save us from ourselves but ourselves.
Finally, Another Perspective exists to expose the fact that the three greatest evils that have caused humanity the preponderance of its pain and suffering are patriotism, greed and religious fanaticism.

With this nation infected with the very worst kind of moral and spiritual cowards and war criminals, I despaired of ever finding a place to intelligently and openly talk about what Iíve learned and what I still seek in my quest to find some definition of a spiritual meaning in an otherwise spiritually meaningless world.
Liberals Like Christ is that rare place. Itís irrelevant about your religion, your spiritual journey or your complete lack of either. Itís a safe place to discuss where you find yourself and where you think youíre going. Itís like the joy you find around your kitchen table when youíre surrounded by people who actually think for themselves. How rare is that in this hyper-Republican, diseased nation?
