Axis of Logic
Friday, Nov 19, 2004


Welcome to all those of you who have requested a copy of the Axis of Logic Ezine.  This edition is dedicated to all of the children, women and men who have suffered and died ... who continue to suffer and die in Iraq.
Also, we are mourning, at this time, the loss of our dear friend, Wieste (Vic) Ratsma, Axis of Logic Columnist, who died yesterday in Nova Scotia.  Please take a moment to read how this man dedicated his entire life to make this world a better place in our tribute to him at the end of this Ezine.

In solidarity and peace,

When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love has always won. There have been tyrants and murderers and for a time they seem invincible but in the end, they always fall - think of it, ALWAYS.

If you are a terror to many, then beware of many
- Ausonius

"Beware the leader who bangs the drums of war in order to whip the citizenry into a patriotic fervor, for patriotism is indeed a double-edged sword. It both emboldens the blood, just as it narrows the mind...And when the drums of war have reached a fever pitch and the blood boils with hate and the mind has closed, the leader will have no need in seizing the rights of the citizenry. Rather, the citizenry, infused with fear and blinded with patriotism, will offer up all of their rights unto the leader, and gladly so. How do I know? For this is what I have done. And I am Caesar."

- William Shakespeare

"You see, I’ve built up capital…and now I intend to spend it."

Bush Administration Wants Artic Meltdown
Wayne Madsen,

"...This racial genealogy of the empire followed the logic of capital accumulation by expanding the market for industrial goods and securing sources of raw materials and, in particular, the prime commodity for exchange and maximizing of surplus value: cheap labor power. This confirms the enduring relevance of Oliver Cromwell Cox's proposition that 'racial exploitation is merely one aspect of the problem of the proletarianization of labor, regardless of the color of the laborer. Hence racial antagonism is essentially political-class conflict' (1948, 485)." 

- E. San Juan, Jr.

Critical Analysis

John N. Cooper, -Axis of Logic

Act Responsibly: Don’t Vote!
Wendy McElroy,

Those truly linked don’t need correspondence.
When they meet again after many years apart,
Their friendship is as true as ever.

- Deng Ming-Dao



Utopia must spring in the private bosom before it can flower in civic virtue, inner reforms leading naturally to outer ones. A man who has reformed himself will reform thousands.

- Paramhansa Yogananda


Unless you are pious,
     You cannot gain a foothold in Tao.
Unless you go beyond rules,
     You haven't gained the middle.
Unless you can be creative,
     You aren't traversing Tao.
Unless the road always stretches out before you,
     You are not walking the true Tao.
- Deng Ming-Dao
