  Monkeywrenching The New World Order (Alternative T - Compilation CD (Virus 272)
By Blackpool Rox II (Editor) Issue 8 (2003) submitted

This double CD includes a litany of offerings from Noam Chomsky, Craig O´Hara, Michael Albert, Alexander Cockburn, Ward Churchill, Agent Apple / The Biotic Baking Brigade, Vandana Shiva, Norman Solomon, Chris Crass, Christian Parenti, Robin Hahnel, and Howard Zinn. The two clear highlights being the interventions of Noam Chomsky and Ward Churchill. Noam starts with a Gerard K Helleiner ditty on globalisation – The poor complain, they always do, but that’s just idle chatter, The system brings rewards to all, at least to all who matter. Explaining globalisation as a specific modality of relations reflecting the asymmetry of relations which exist within the world, he provides an excellent and easy to digest outline of why this planet is so messed up. Explaining that poverty, inequality etc is a man-made creation and therefore something which man chooses, he indirectly debunks the myths that what we see in the contemporary situations in Darfur, Niger are the products of famine, over-population and bad governance. Providing an informed, reasoned and neat riposte to the various cheerleaders of globalisation such as Thomas Freedman, he cuts through the Western-centric myths and tells it how it is. Ward Churchill’s piece is based around his wonderful “A Little Matter of Genocide” – Holocaust and Denial in the Americas 1492 to the Present (reviewed elsewhere) focusing on the promulgation of scalp bounties as an official element of US federal policy in all states, bar Hawaii and Alaska. His invective Southern drawl eloquently weaves through the history of state sanctioned genocide based around the production of the scalp or bloody red skin of any Indian (man, woman or child) and the lucrative reward paid by the government to the bounty hunters who made a profession of killing. This reminds me of the pictures of Lithuanians killing Jews in the streets once the Nazis came to town – an acceptable part of state policy which lasted 12 years (1933-1945), whereas this US genocidal state policy lasted for a couple of centuries (1640 with the Pilgrim Fathers in Penn State, until the late 1800’s culminating in Wounded Knee). Some of Ward’s comments over 9/11 have landed him in hot water and he has resigned his post as professor at the State University of Colorado. There are many sinister conservative forces who would be only too pleased to see any voices of dissent silenced – they are the real enemies of democracy, not Ward Churchill. (9/10)
