    As someone who kept his head during the Cuba Missile Crisis (see the
    film, "KPFA On the Air," for what I did, or the description in my
    autobiography), I have precedent for looking at the present situation
    with sobriety, not hysteria. Bush' conduct right now in Japan and
    elsewhere in Asia indicates that his advisors do have some sense of
    realism with respect to world opposition to his policies. In Europe and,
    particularly in the United States, governments and peoples are going
    along with him, so he can behave like the emperor of the world. In Asia
    it is different. Those countries may save us, until opposition in Europe
    and at home builds up. My guess is that the Israeli-Palestinian crisis
    may force people to take stands and act considerably sooner than if
    Sharon were behaving in a less Nazi manner.

    ======================================================== My autobiography, SAYING NO TO POWER (Creative Arts, Berkeley, 1999), was written for the general reader. However, if you teach in the social sciences consider it for student reading. It is a history of how the American people fought to defend and expand its rights in my lifetime, employing the form of the life story of one who was involved in most serious movements: labor, student, peace, civil rights South and North, civil liberties (I seriously damaged the Senate Internal Security Committee, the McCarthy Committee, and the House Un-American Activities Committee with spectacular testimonies that may be heard/seen on my website, ), the RADIO OF DISSENT (37 YEARS ON PACIFICA), with very extensive information on its history) and the feminist movement, although I am male. The book contains some fifty pages on my late wife, Tanya, appearing appropriately throughout the book. They may be found in the index under Mandel, Tanya. My activities began in 1927. I am 84. The book is available through all normal sources. If you want an autographed copy, send me $23 at 4466 View Pl., Apt. 106, Oakland, CA. 94611 ========================================================
