      "The problem with capitalism is that it best rewards the worst part
      of us: the ruthless, competitive, conniving, opportunistic,
      acquisitive drives, giving little reward and often much
      punishment--or at least much handicap--to honesty, compassion, fair
      play, many forms of hard work, love of justice, and a concern for
      those in need."
      o Michael Parenti

      The liberal political tradition provides no coherent response to the
      obvious question: Why should the rights of ownership prevail over the
      rights of democratic citizenry in determining who is to manage the
      affairs of a business enterprise whose policies might directly affect
      as many as half a million employees, and whose choice of product,
      location, and technology touches entire communities and beyond?
      o Samuel Bowels

      If you thought the army was here protecting people like yourself,
      I've some news for you, they're here to defend wealth.
      o Billy Bragg

      One has to realize that the powerful industrial groups concerned in
      the manufacture of arms are doing their best in all countries to
      prevent the peaceful settlement of international disputes, and that
      rulers can achieve this great end only if they are sure of the
      vigorous support of the majority of their peoples.
      o Albert Einstein

      "Creations of the spirit are not just commodities; the elements of
      culture are not pure business. Defending the pluralism of works of
      art and the freedom of the public to choose is a duty. What is at
      stake is the cultural identity of all our nations. It is the right of
      all people to their own culture. It is the freedom to create and
      choose our own images. A society which abandons to others the way of
      showing itself, that is to say, the way of presenting itself to
      itself, is a society enslaved."

      The difference between high and popular art is not fundamentally a
      difference in the institutions that promulgate their products or in
      the class background of consumers but a difference in the process of
      mediation. The relation between producers and consumers of art is not
      constant. It entails different levels of expert involvement. The
      higher a work is in the cultural hierarchy, the more important is
      discourse about the object to its status. Taste in high art is
      mediated by experts, whereas taste in low art is not.

      [7] "Blue Heron Yodel" on Bird Call < heathcollom@...>. Was
      turned on to wonderful Jack the poet-yodeler by Hakim Bey. Became
      friends and he even yodeled during a lecture I gave in Boulder with
      oxygen tank on [emphysema] and all. He is an amazing peripatetic,
      convivial promoter of the spoken word as intimate play between
      friends and strangers.
      [8] Field recordings by myself. Sometimes audio is more mnemonic than
      visual stimuli.

      Excellent series of field [pasture] recordings of grazing animals and
      bells. I got together with Cyrill in Luzern and he notes that his
      amazing 3 CD 3 DVD series of steamboat recordings is in its final
      stages of post-productionŠ Look for it.
      [13] "Alles Bleibt Anders" on Dewil Music <www.dewilmusic.ch>. One of
      my tops for 2006. Alpine meadow ambience track of 30-ish minutes plus
      interesting 21st-century interpretations of yodeling. Saw her while
      in Switzerland, wandering around a precious small town square,
      yodeling and serenading the diners and drinkersŠ

      sheep. All sent into outer space in a one-horse open sleigh.
      [17] "Pondfloorsample" on XI <www.xirecords.com>. GKM is the neighbor
      you always suspected you had when you lived down on the Lower
      Eastside. A guy with broken glasses and putting a dented microphone
      into dusty holes in your tenement hallway. He will play you
      recordings of cockroaches playing cards if you've got an hour some
      Friday around midnight. If you ever wondered what something sounded
      like you could call on GKM - he's got an audio hardware store full of
      every soundŠ
      [18] "Musicworks98" on Musicworks <www.musicworks.ca>.
      [19] "Transformations" on Empreintes Digitales. Wandering with ears
      as walking sticks. One of the first to explore region of
      ecological-acoustical recordings.
      [20] "Poor, On Tour & Over 54" on No Help Here. Great material.
      You've got 2 guys too smart to be considered as funny as they really
      are and too funny to be considered as seriously as they should. Maybe
      one should OD in a toilet and then their fortunes might change.

      o Local TV station AT5 in August reported that Amsterdam is the world
      city with the most nationalities represented among its citizens and
      residents. On January 1, 2007, there were 177 nationalities
      represented in this city of 750,000. It has added one new
      nationality. There is one resident from Malawi now. There is also one
      resident each from Gabon, Botswana, Cameroon, Monaco and
      Turkmenistan. The most highly represented are from Turkey and Morocco
      but also the UK, Germany, Suriname, the US, Ghana, Italy and Egypt
      are included in the Top 10.

      o corporate globalization watch in Z Magazine

      The standardization of world culture, with local popular or
      traditional forms driven out or dumbed down to make way for American
      television, American music, food, clothes and films, has been seen by
      many as the very heart of globalization.
      o Fredric Jameson

      It has been said that arguing against globalization is like arguing
      against the laws of gravity.
      o Kofi Annan quotes

      The system of corporate life is a new power for which our language
      contains no name. We have no word to express government by moneyed
      o Charles Francis Adams

      Capitalism is a thug's economy, a heartless economy, a base and vile
      and largely boring economy. It is the antithesis of human fulfillment
      and development. It mocks equity and justice. It enshrines greed...
      Capitalism sucks. Does anyone seriously want to contest that?
      o Michael Albert

      "I would define globalization as the freedom for my group of
      companies to invest where it wants when it wants, to produce what it
      wants, to buy and sell where it wants, and support the fewest
      restrictions possible coming from labour laws and social conventions."
      o (Percy Barnevik, President of the ABB Industrial Group)

      A single decision by the chairman of Royal Dutch/Shell has a greater
      impact on the health of the planet than all the
      coffee-ground-composting, organic-cotton-wearing ecofreaks gathering
      in Washington D.C., for Earth Day festivities this weekend.
      o Sharon Begley

      For complex reasons, our culture allows "economy" to mean only "money
      economy." It equates success and even goodness with monetary profit
      because it lacks any other standard of measurement. I am no
      economist, but I venture to suggest that one of the laws of such an
      economy is that a farmer is worth more dead than alive. A second law
      is that anything diseased is more profitable than anything that is
      healthy. What is wrong with us contributes more to the "gross
      national product" than what is right with us.
      o Wendell Berry

      The liberal political tradition provides no coherent response to the
      obvious question: Why should the rights of ownership prevail over the
      rights of democratic citizenry in determining who is to manage the
      affairs of a business enterprise whose policies might directly affect
      as many as half a million employees, and whose choice of product,
      location, and technology touches entire communities and beyond?
      o Samuel Bowels

      If only more of today's military personnel would realize that they
      are being used by the owning elite's as a publicly subsidized
      capitalist goon squad
      o Major General Smedley Butler

      Why don't those damn oil companies fly their own flags on their
      personal property - maybe a flag with a gas pump on it.
      o Major General Smedley Butler

      What is called 'capitalism' is basically a system of corporate
      mercantilism, with huge and largely unaccountable private tyrannies
      exercising vast control over the economy, political systems, and
      social and cultural life, operating in close cooperation with
      powerful states that intervene massively in the domestic economy and
      international society.
      o Noam Chomsky

      In considering how human rights might serve as a 'guiding value' in
      American foreign policy, one should not dismiss the historical
      record, which is ample. There is indeed a close relationship between
      human rights and American foreign policy. There is substantial
      evidence that American aid and diplomatic support increase as human
      rights violations increase, at least in the Third World. Extensive
      violations of human rights (torture, forced reduction of living
      standards for much of the population, police-sponsored death squads,
      destruction of representative institutions or of independent unions,
      etc.) are directly correlated with US government support. The linkage
      is not accidental; rather it is systematic. The reason is obvious
      enough. Client fascism often improves the business climate for
      American corporations, quite generally the guiding factor in foreign
      policy. It would be naïve indeed to think that this will change
      materially, given the realities of American social structure and the
      grip of the state ideological system.
      o Noam Chomsky

      Militarism. . . is the chief bulwark of capitalism. When it is that
      militarism is undermined, capitalism will fail.
      o Helen Keller

      Capitalism is the astounding belief that the most wickedest of men
      will do the most wickedest of things for the greatest good of
      o John Maynard Keynes

      When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights are
      considered more important than people; the giant triplets of racism,
      militarism, and economic exploitation are incapable of being
      conquered. A true revolution of values will soon cause us to question
      the fairness and justice of many of our present policies...
      o Martin Luther King, Jr

      o Jonges v/d Vlakte [Boys from the Plains]: "De cottonpickin' Jongens
      van de cottonpickin' Vlakte" play a piquant, illuminating, and
      playfully irritating mix of faulty music, of near-misses, of obscure
