What Does LATISM Really Stand For? or How to Neutralize a Movement to the Sound of Cheers

ON THE SURFACE, it would appear that LATISM is just another of the thousands of “grass-roots” start-ups trying to find its niche in American society but a deeper look is necessary for those who care for our culture and community's health.

Is the DEA Dealing Drugs in Your Neighborhood?

YOU CAN TRUST THE BANKS. You can trust the NSA. You can trust the FDA. You can trust the DEA. You can trust the police. Because all these organizations act in the name of what is best for The People. Except what if that's complete and utter bullshit? What, then?

News With Nezua | The Invisible Flower

News With Nezua | The Invisible Flower

JUDGING BY THE EGREGIOUS SILENCE on mainstream U.S. infotainment stations, one might assume that the life and premeditated murder of an innocent child is only worth our compassion and outrage if she is white.

Yes.

Politician, Represent Thyself.

Politician, Represent Thyself.

IN POLITICS, PHRASES ARE HURLED ABOUT with a repetition that becomes a song; a pattern of mouthsounds spelling out a sonic shape with a predictable, recurrent, and lulling rhythm. Mind, you, the message is a lie, but the beat is so on time, that we find our feet stepping along in a shuffling, delusional line.

Flame to the Codex, 2010 Style.

Flame to the Codex, 2010 Style.

A TIMELESS TACTIC practiced by the oppressor is to burn the pages of all your history books. To shatter your statues and to destroy your icons of hope and power. Today in Arizona, these age-old methods play out yet again. But they cannot stop us, nor the truth of our peoples.

ALL GUESTS AT THE ZOO and some imagine they are the keepers when they are the caged. They hoot like monkeys and point with rage.

SB 1070: The Wet Empanada Version

WITH ALL THE INTENSITY of SB 1070 being passed, and all the vile spirits unleashed unto the online comment threads, and with all the heartache that witnessing such injustice brings—Stephen Colbert offers us a much-needed laugh and break in the action.

The Foolishness of Politicians; The Future of the Progressive; The Fantasies of the Proletariat

WE ARE SERENADED and handled by sociopathically-skilled master paraders. The Good Cop/Bad Cop dynamic shuttles us from room to room eliciting the desired confession and appropriate gratitude. Meanwhile, the People dance and still struggle, while the sun turns Glenn Beck's tears into blood diamonds.
