Volume 50, Number 8
Looking beyond official spin, Toward Freedom examines the domestic downside of the war on terrorism. TV Producer Chloe Kovner shows how propaganda is being turned into "reality" TV entertainment. Diane Lane takes on Joint Terrorism Task Forces, pointing to the potential revival of "red squad" activity directed against dissent. And Ron Chepesiuk looks at the "war on drugs," offering ten common sense alternatives that can limit harm and produce results.
