Phil And Me -- 34 Years Later

I was always terrified of marriage. It seemed to me like a place where women lost sight of themselves. And I was quoted saying things like "Marriage is like living with a jailer you have to please." Or, as Gloria Steinem once said, "I can't mate in captivity."

The Elephant in the Room: Militarism

Jeff Cohen | Posted 06.12.2013 | Media
Jeff Cohen

I spent years as a political pundit on mainstream TV -- at CNN, Fox News and MSNBC. I was outnumbered, outshouted, red-baited and finally terminated. Inside mainstream media, I saw that major issues were not only dodged, but sometimes not even acknowledged to exist. Today there's an elephant in the room: a huge, yet ignored, issue that largely explains why Social Security is now on the chopping block. And why other industrialized countries have free college education and universal healthcare, but we don't. It's arguably our country's biggest problem -- a problem that Martin Luther King Jr. focused on before he was assassinated 45 years ago, and has only worsened since then (which was the height of the Vietnam War). That problem is U.S. militarism and perpetual war.
