      From the Energy Action Coalition

      There is a deep need for the peace, environmental and political reform movements to come together. Single issue organizing is all well and good, but we are greater as a unified pro-democracy public. While strip mines and pipelines plunder along, the US government is fighting so many wars over resources that it is difficult to count. As long as the energy conservation budget is a fraction of the war budget, we are dead, be it one way or another.

      Rolling Stone: Tom Hayden on Port Huron at 50

      In March 1962, a 22-year-old student journalist and activist named Tom Hayden sat down in his Manhattan apartment to begin work on an "agenda for a generation," a manifesto that would distil the fears and hopes and values of the student movement then rising on American campuses. Three months later, members of the newly formed Students for a Democratic Society, the leading organization of the New Left movement, came together to debate and edit Hayden's draft at a five-day retreat near Port Huron, northeast of Detroit.

      Democratic Consultants Promote Middle Class Populism but Downplay War, Military Issues

      Top Democratic consultants James Carville and Stanley Greenberg have issued a must-read, well researched, and entertaining manifesto, It's The Middle Class, Stupid!, summarizing their oft-stated argument that the Democratic Party must embrace middle class populism to win. Another major Democratic advisor, George Lakoff, with co-author Elisabeth Wehling, make a similar case in terms of message framing in The Little Blue Book. Preserving the shrinking of the middle class, while enhancing its prospects and guaranteeing access for the next generation, is their mantra.

      The Failure of the Long War: Al Qaeda Rising in Syria, Iraq

      Despite trillions of dollars and thousands of lives lost, it now appears that Al Qaeda is far from defeated and even on the rise in Syria, Iraq, Yemen, Somali and Mali. The American counterterrorism strategy, symbolized by the 2011 killing of Osama bin Laden, and while inflicting serious damage on the network, has failed to prevent its spread and regeneration. Counter-insurgency, the rival Pentagon strategy of providing security for local populations, is already being shelved after a brief period of enthusiasm among defense intellectuals and journalists.
